Dear Nadine,

....a derby tangent.

Today I attempted to start a throwdown on the derby track... again justified. I took an elbow to the eye and whacked the girl who threw it in the back of the helmet with the plastic bit of my wrist guard. It was more of a bitch smack than a punch, but i got a seat in the sin bin for a while for that one. The refs were actually debating whether it was purposeful or not, and our coach told me he was lucky they were dumb, because I got to play the rest of the game.... which I think I took a total of 4 elbows to the face- three on the left and one on the right (that I think might have actually been a shoulder.)

But whatevs, we won by what, like 100 points? Throwdown or not, HARD is the dominant force in non-WFTDA East Coast Derby at this point. And the Butt of Doom and I are firmly in the middle of it

Yikes! Ouch! Hits to the face...not cool. (Yours from roller derby or mine from volleyball, either way it doesn't feel good.)
