Free Skate - Behind The Awkwardness

“I thought it would be great to ring in the new year by volunteering & supporting the Albany Allstars Roller Derby (un-finished) calendar project back in 2011. I really did use this as an awkward (yet endearing, I hope!?) Seasons Greetings family card!”

    I’ve been doing this for 15 years, and LOVE the sport! Yeah, I have massive thighs too….but I could snap you in two with them! I don’t know about “fastest growing sport,” because the first 10 years, only family and people who belong in gamblers anonymous ever came to watch! Her family should be PROUD to hang this photo, the only other non-contact (in theory) sport that can compete with the spirit of roller derby is ice hockey! The only two sports requiring loss of blood or loss of consciousness to call a foul!

    I bet this wonderful lady plays Roller Derby, otherwise known as the fastest growing sport in the world. So, she most certainly does make bold, strong, empowering and smart choices!! Love the tights and the Rydells.

    Dude has an awesome sister. Anyone with this much character and fun personality must be great to hang with.

    I love the tact of “I love her, but she makes some bold choices.” Garland and patterned tights and roller skates is a …. bold choice.
