More awesomeness from our league’s official photographer, who put up a whole buncha’ stuff this week.
Check out his Flickr for more. They’re so good. For my money, he’s one of the top 5 derby photographers in the country.

Close. Freaking. Games. I hate hate hated to lose, but I feel like we did well, and I’m so proud of my team. We were playing with a lot of new and newish—Four brand new ladies, a transfer, and two mid-season rookies from last year (including me)—but they played like total pros! One got MVP!
If we can get our penalties down for the next game, we’ll be freaking golden.
Personally, while I’m not yet a derby rockstar, I’m very proud of how far I’ve come since last season. We watched the video at the afterparty, and I look much more comfortable and capable. I mostly play defense, but I tried my
hand…er, feet at jamming last night. It didn’t go particularly well, but it was fun and I think I’d like to keep working at it. Bonus! Only two minors the whole night, though I guess a lot of that is because I’m primarily a defensive player, so I’m not in a position to get a whole lot of penalties.
