I’ve working on a post about making game rosters – I’ve asked some captains and coaches to share how they do it, and how skaters can improve their chances of making the list. So look out for that next week. While I was thinking about it, though, I was chatting a bit on Twitter about […]

It’s a very, very exciting Manatee Monday this week, because I get to tell you where I’ll be three Mondays from now: I will be in Florida. To hang out with manatees. A couple of weeks ago, I just kind of threw out the idea of going to WFTDA Championships, and, ha ha, by the […]
