You got your bracket*,  your flat track stats, and maybe/sometimes your Rinxter. Perhaps you have a beer. You, friend, are ready to spectate the hell out of some roller derby. Thinking of attending playoffs in Sacramento gives me a flashback hangover to 2010. You know, Scylla won Best Blocker at the Rose City Rollers year-end […]

Before we had the internet, if you wanted to see some cute baby animals, you had to go find some. Or, if you’re my age, you could go to the poster store at the mall and flip through the animal section. How many of us have been bolstered by kittens emploring us to “hang in […]

It’s a longstanding tradition for me to grouse about how much fun other people are having at RollerCon. What Happens In Vegas leaks out all over your stupid Facebook feed. Maybe a better person would be happy for their friends, but not me! I’m a regular, jealous person who’s greedy for fun. So. Not all […]

Just as I’ve been threatening to do for months, I finally made to Wreckers (Rose City rec league) practice last week.

Things are changing around the Sour house. After five years at a secure but unchallenging job, I’m leaving security behind to be a freelance writer. * I would never have done this if not for Roller Derby for Beginners. Not that it’s making the rent – beer and ice cream money more like it – […]

Sooo…you guys heard about this fantasy roller derby? Sorry, you can’t join. It’s exclusive. Sorry to be a jerk, but we just needed to get that out of the way first. A couple of weeks ago, Mike Chexx (who you may know as an announcer) casually mentioned on Facebook that he was thinking about starting […]

Well, I wrote a book and had a baby, so I feel fairly accomplished for 2013, but 2014 has more in store. More blog posts for you. More actual roller skating. It’s gonna be great. Just you watch and see. Here’s the most popular stuff we chatted about last year: Mental toughness with Scarlene (seriously, […]

  Happy Holidays, from my manatee to yours! Or to you, I guess. Hardly any of you have your own manatees. Thank you for hanging out with me on the internet in 2013 and being a fun group of people to chat with and type to. Here’s to 2014: May your bearings roll true, and […]
