Roller Derby, Blogtime and Fights

I have to deal with drama at the gym. It sucks. I have started coaching and tutoring on Mondays to help out, but it can't fix it.

I haven't had much time to blog. The situation at the gym is causing undue stress. Work is kicking my ass. But I always have enjoyed that. That is why I was a halfway decent boxer. I sort of enjoy getting my ass kicked. That overwhelming feeling, the pain, and then cracking a smile in the midst of the chaos, assault and uncertainty.

So I look to the good news is that both Derron and Demetrius won the Silver Gloves.

And also I think a Roller Derby team may do a demonstration at the next fights. There was a first general meeting for the Arch Rival Rollers. Anyway, it was a large group of kick ass girls who want to start a real roller derby team. It sounded great. I think I may try to get the Soulard Market Gym again for this around the Mardi Gras time of year. It may be quite interesting.

Steve- do you have a contact for the River City Rollers for someone who would be interested in getting involved?

i missed the meeting that evening, but got the update from sarah at practice that following tues.

i meant to ask sarah, but could easily ask you - what exactly were you hoping to get with the demonstration? because from what i've gathered from other derby teams (chicago, for example), it takes a good year to get everyone up to speed and ready before they start up with bouts.

however, i can't imagine the team would mind getting dolled up to skates for a bit. good promotion opportunity, imo.
