Aw man... I kinda want to change my profile pics to a pic of me from the bout last night, but my FB pic is me with Sexy Slaydie, and my G+ pic is me with Dumptruck... what to do, what to do??

(This is me with Armagaydon, the returning skater I was lucky enough to train with through Level 2s and Fresh Meat with, and who had her first bout back last night with us)

Shatterbug's photo set from the bout last night is up!  There're a couple good pics of me, and lots of great pics of derby.

My first bout (ever!) last night was great!  The Bluestockings really pulled together to work as a team.  I felt like I was effective every jam I went in.  I only sat in the box once, for a direction of play penalty. I also had one minor penalty, but I'm not sure what it was - probably back blocking.

My team was amazing and supportive.  I was given "first bout spanks" by some of my teammates during warm up - those stung!  After the game, I was enveloped in an enormous team hug.  I really felt like a valued member of the team.

Our final score was 189 Blues to 65 Chautauqua County.  Oh, and I got to skate against Leanderthal, who's name gave me mild rage when I was picking my name, for how awesome it is (I briefly considered Neanderlol.  That would have been hilarious).

A nice write up of roller derby in Ithaca appeared in the Ithaca Times!  

"Cronk-Chilson" would be better known as SciFi (Mad ScienceFist), FYI.

I just want to share the most recent Savage Love Letter of the Day, from a 17 year old lesbian in Ireland who just came out to her parents, and is having a hard time. Please give it a read, and if you have a moment, maybe send her a letter offering your support and (if applicable) advice? It sounds like she could use it.
