    I've been invited to skate in two exhibition games at the Rolling Along the River Tournament in Sioux City, Iowa the weekend of October 10-11. It would be awesome to have some RJ guys cheer me on icon_biggrin.gif

    It is super-old, lol. My team won the first day, lost the second. During the first bout, I was jamming and got blocked off the track...went sliding into a set of steel chairs. I raised my arms to protect my face and slammed into the chairs, ribs first...skated the rest of the bout and the next day, with a cracked rib icon_neutral.gif

    And you'll do it again. I just got back from Derby Daze in Portland, and I was an NSO during a bout there. My legs are covered in bruises right now because a blocker slammed right into me and made me go down.

    How long have you been skating derby? I know that the average life of the derby girl is about 2 years ...does that figure hold for derby boys?

    But nobody hates the NSOs like they hate the refs. icon_biggrin.gif

    And what was your friend's derby name back in the 70s? Who did she skate for?
