You know Manatee loves to party – so he was more than happy to hang out with Baby Sour and I this weekend as we cheered on Rose City at WFTDA Playoffs. (Baby Sour just cheered. He didn’t watch. He’s just a baby.) Manatee’s favorite player is obviously Scylla Devourer. Because he loves the sea. […]

You guys know Scarlene, right? If you do, you are welcome. If you don’t – she’s a skater with Rose City, formerly of the LA Derby Dolls and Angel City. She’s fun but pretty serious about being good at roller derby. Good combo. I asked her a few questions about mental training, or as we’re […]

Not going to Westerns

I’m not going to Westerns this year. BUMMER. They’re always hard for me to get to, situated between two of the busiest weeks of my year at work. If I did go, I’d have to fly in Friday night and fly out Sunday night or first thing Monday morning. And when I say “first thing” I mean […]

Behold! There was, to my eye and this angle, an uncalled clockwise block major on Sargentina after she completes the whip and knocks Demanda Riot out of bounds. The pegassist might be a good way to get your jammer going with a 4-2 pack disadvantage, but you’d better make damn sure it’s legal. I’m not sure it’s […]

In my Rose City Rollers skating career, I must’ve set some kind of record for number of times trying out for travel team without making it. Four? Five? Enough to have lost track. This time, I had very low expectations. I seriously considered taking my name off the tryout list a few times, just to […]
