So I did get to play at Saturday’s roller derby bout. Not for long, but long enough to really like the adrenaline, and appreciate all the practicing I’ve done up until this point. Lucy Crabapple was indeed, in the house (rather, on the track) for a brief moment in time.
In any case, the bug is there. While it’ll never trump my love of skiing, it’s definitely a group activity I’m going to continue with, unlike, say, outrigger canoe.
