Welcome, or fuck you, depending.
I'm not here to tell you how many calories you can burn roller skating, I'm here to incite and entertain.
Take me or leave me.

THIS IS SIGNIFICANT!!!!!!!! Every single day In the Newseum in Washington D.C., they have the front page of major newspapers from around the world. There was an entire hallway of Oct. 7th Newspapers. EVERY SINGLE ONE seemed to mention two things. The death of Steve Jobs and the fact that today is the 10 year anniversay of the war in Afghanistan. But Indiana? The front page of their paper has three things: Steve Jobs, the War, and Roller Derby is the fastest growing sport in the Nation. The article was just as long as the Steve Jobs one. = SIGNIFICANT!!!!!!!!!

I wrote this last night at midnight

You know, I just shut off my computer, got in bed and turned off the light. As I was drifting off, for some reason I started reflecting on my past year and a half in roller derby. And all of a sudden I had an epiphany. It was like a big flashing billboard in my mind. The thought was so shocking to me I sat up straight in bed and said to myself, “this is significant!” and grabbed my computer. It was more of an emotion than a thought really, because I can’t actually explain WHY these words came into my brain. But they are as follows:  

“I don’t like the direction roller derby is going.”
