final Diva bout of the season

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...

That looks like so much fun! I've thought about doing roller derby before, but I'm rather intimidated because I'm really uncoordinated and I'm not sure I could stay on my feet. I'm glad you like it though! :)

I'm the proud owner of that article!! WhoHoo!

It's a great photograph in colour. The yellow red green higlights make for a great composition.

Can you send me the full sized image if you have it?

And way to pull out the win! I wasn't sure from the Facebook photos whether you pulled it off, but I'm delighted that you did! I can't wait to see you play someday!
