Derby…. stymied…

I decided I needed to go back to derby before the upcoming bout this weekend.  I’m slated to be penalty wrangler and will be surrounded by a lot of people, and I wanted to get back to my team in *private* at a practice before I did the whole public bout thing.

No guarantees I won’t be bawling at the bout, but I wanted to see people before the bout.

Plus I wanted to get on skates again.

I get to practice.  The parking lot is FILLED with bicycles and bicycle type people.

The arena had been double booked.

The auditorium being used.

No on skate practicing.


*big sigh*


It was  a fun practice – all strategy off skates.

I’d sorta kept myself out of the loop with the strategy practices – after all – if I’m not playing, I don’t need to learn strategy yet, right?

Hey… all you derby folk… stop laughing at me.  Stop *facepalm*’ing .

I can wait….


Really? You’re still giggling?

I know – it was stupid.  I could be learning SO MUCH and lost out on time.

It is what it is though – and I’m going to accept that I didn’t make the smartest decision… but I will be.  Strategy is important, and if I learn it NOW before I am playing, I’ll be that much better prepared when I am playing next season.

You can stop laughing at me now.


Did I mention I love my team?  They’re an awesome bunch of ladies 🙂
