WFTDA playoffs work differently this year. Instead of a regional playoff system, teams are seeded in tournaments without regard to geography.

Here’s something I probably should have thought of – since I didn’t eat dinner last night, I am ravenous today.  Thank the derby gods for Effy, who pointed me to some string cheese.  Protein!  I might need another one (and another granola bar, etc.) to make it to the 4pm break.  I’m supposed to be […]
