what happened to us, kodos?

Okay, do you remember back at the end of last year when I told you I was trying a new experiment and I would let you know if it worked out?  Well, it's working out, and this is it:


I first heard about roller derby from John--he watched it in the seventies when it was basically professional wrestling on skates.  It's much different now--not scripted, and it's a real, no-foolin' sport.  You should see the things these ladies can do on skates!  One of them can jump a folding chair.  Probably more than one!  I am very impressed by them.  Anyway, I'm having a great time and it has brought balance to my life and helped me chafe less in my traces.  I'm still in fresh meat because I am a slow learner.  It's scary and wonderful and I love it.  You guys, roller skates are fun.  If you live in or near the Ogden, UT area and want to be part of something unique and challenging and rewarding, I highly recommend it.  And if you don't live around here, chances are there's a league in your area that would love to have you.  I just googled "roller derby in Utah," and here we are.

Are you one of the people in the pictures? No one looks like you, but the picture is small. That is so cool! You are so brave!

I'm second from the top left, in the Junction City tank top, with the weird look on my face

That's you? You are unrecognizable!

The first one on the first full row, in the TSG helmet--the one who looks most like a mom?

Ok, that's better. I apparently ignored "second from the top left" and just looked for the biggest "Junction City." That didn't look like you at all. This doesn't either, but it's closer.

Wait, what? Is this for reals? This is awesome.
