For the final bout of our first season, a season that started with 8 eager women in the fall of 2008, and grew to include me (never having been on roller skates in my entire life) in February of 2009, a team that first bouted in April shortly after having purchased pads and helmets and faithfully practiced and grew in skill and membership over the next 9 bouts, 3 scrimmages and 7 months closed out the season with a win - and truly having evolved as a team.
We played the Folsom Prison Bruisers, and they made us work for our win ever step of the way. They also scared the crap out of us (Jack Skellington?):
We were tough and pulled through, below Short Stack gets beat up a little, but that little chica sure did amazing with her jams!
Amazingly enough, photo evidence even has me doing something effective - here I'm the bread on one half of a Canadian-Hippie sandwich, with a somewhat unhappy looking Bruiser (getting bruised) in the middle. Delicious!
These photos only exist because of our fabulous bout photographer of the evening. Below I pose with her nerdy husband.
This photograph exists because of an article in the school newspaper... another one (article that is) should follow this bout too. I'm just goofing around...
