Blah Blah Blah
I didn’t sleep well last night…my mind was working overtime, and wouldn’t shut up. I really shouldn’t drink coffee after dinner. I think I finally fell asleep at 5am…and woke up at 9. I almost blogged during this zombie like state…but I’m glad I didn’t. Things are much brighter this morning. I’m glad I controlled myself, rather than letting self doubt and worry take over.
My daughter’s roller derby team’s picture is on the front page of one of our local newspapers this morning. What a pleasant surprise. There it is…in the lower left corner…under “Local News”. She plays on a local women’s roller derby team.
She goes by the name of Big Headed Honky. Her “number” is 59 1/4 centimeters….is that a lot for the circumference of a head? Anyway…the team she rolls on is the Albany All Stars Roller Derby League. They’ve been practicing for just over a year, and 2008 is their “Inaugural Season” debut.
They play their bouts on a flat track, and pretty much follow WFTDA rules. WFTDA=Women’s Flat Track Derby Association. They have chosen to not become members of that association though. You can learn more about WFTDA here. The Albany All Stars also has a “travel team” which consists of select members of both the Department of Public Hurts and the Skateomasochists. The travel team is called the Empire Skate Troopers. They’re looking for a graphic designer to come up with a logo for their team. Of course if they pick your design, the only thing you receive is the Empire Skate Troopers undying gratitude, a shout out on their hand out program, and a season pass to their bouts. If that doesn’t bother you…check out their call out for a design here. Who knows…maybe if they pick your design, you’ll become famous. Of course I’m saying that with tongue in cheek…but hey…ya never know!
