You’re thinking What the heck does Roller Derby have to do with food? Right? Me. That’s what!
I’ve joined the Round Rock Roller Derby League called the Rockin’ City Rollergirls and aspire to be hell on eight wheels. You know, when I’m not playing with the kids, donating blood, or baking cookies in my undies. But seriously, derby is a motivation to get my tired aging ass back in reasonable shape. I want to be able to walk up stairs without huffing and puffing by the fourth stair. I used to swim every day in college, my muscles have been left to waste away to mush.
Mom, don’t worry, I have safety gear and a mouth guard. Hmm, that also reminds me… You know why derby is awesome? There’s no one to tell me “no, you can’t”, like those volleyball teams did all those years ago. If you want to skate, you skate. If you quit, that’s you’re own fault!
Now for the part you’ve been waiting for: winning two tickets to the Homecoming Brawl! This is happening in Round Rock at Austin Sports Arena on Sept 22 at 11:30am. Kids under 12 are free at the door! Bonus, right?!? All you have to do is leave a comment below, and if you’re into derby, tell me your favorite team and/or skater. Be sure to use your real email address when leaving a comment so I can find you if you win!
Winner takes 2 free tickets, contest closes Sept 15th!
