  • I'd given up on sports. I decided I was going to find a new one and gt involved somehow. When I realized that roller derby was back I went and checked it out. I was thrilled. No, this wasn't the derby of my youth. This was grace and skill and strategy. This was powerful women working hard for something they love and doing it all voluntarily. I was hooked, I was in, I had found my sport and I decided I was going to be a fan.

    Later I found my team. They are local and they are all wonderful people. I became their blogger and in turn they became as much fans of me as I am of them. Today I can count many of them friends and I am always thrilled to see them play. In the short time since they started this league with a ragtag group of newbies they have grown and expanded into more than 40 players on two separate teams. They are good too. Soon they will rise again and become national contenders I am sure of it. This month marks their first birthday. Happy Birthday Derby Girls. We love what you do.
