Little Anecdote is a place for skaters, wannabe skaters, and fans. If you’re interested in roller derby outside of the scores, you’re in the right place. We discuss strategy, training, feelings, and whatever else you want to talk about.
I’m Frisky Sour. I used to play for the Break Neck Betties, a home team in the Rose City Rollers, then retired in August 2012 to get knocked up. Now I skate occasionally with the Rose City Rollers Wreckers, a recreational program for people to beat their friends up for funsies. Here’s my whole derby history if you’re curious.
In 2012, I wrote Roller Derby for Beginners, which is a pretty cool book if you’re starting out in derby and feeling overwhelmed, or just thinking about playing.
I’m a freelance writer, wife to pretty much the best dude ever, mom of a toddler, Blazers fan, and an admirer of the gentle manatee.
If you want to hang out at my blog, you have to be nice.
