Fists Forever!

Well, Fists has reported to me that she was interviewed by Channel 5 news at the grand opening for the new Ikea that just opened in West Chester. Check out the Channel 5 web site to see her pretty face! She was one of about 10,000 people reported to have come to the big opening festivities. Fists also let me know that practices with the Rollergirls have been challenging and rewarding as of late...despite a super hard knockdown issued by Sadistic Sadie that left her really sore this evening. I guess you don't join roller derby unless you're up for the occasional smackdowns! Fists is going to kick ass this year! Send some love and encouragement to our girl! She appreciates every bit of it!

When the mind turns to thoughts of derby on a snowy eve...

What to do? What to do? It's snowing and this derby fan justs wants to see some derby action! I have weeks and weeks to wait until the upcoming April 12th bout. The girls have started on the three-days-per-week practice schedule, which means they're buckling down for the competition. I'm going to take this time to revamp my array of fan signs, which ended up pretty neat last year. A few sheets of posterboard and a couple of markers and you're the superfan from Hell! Derby isn't just about the action; it's also nice having a winning local team to root for and take pride in! Seriously! Forget the Bengals and the Reds...GO CRG! Is it April yet?!

Urban Active Gym Membership Deal

Hello everybody in snowy roller derby land! If you're associated with CRG, make sure you speak to Skates With Fists about the new, inexpensive deal that she and Sista Sac worked out with Urban Active gyms. What better way to destroy the competition this year than to get fit and healthy! Fists did her first spinning class last night, and you can bet she was worn worn out that she's taking a nap right now, enjoying her snow day from work.
