Rogue #N0H8 Q: How did you first become involved in roller derby? A: How it all began… My friends (Amy Stone and Kendra Nudd) and I decided to do Derby Lite. I didn’t even finish a full session before (my now derby wife) Scream Printer convinced me to try out for the Chicago Outfit. This […]

This is the question I am most often asked when I wear my Outfit league hoodie in public.  Usually the conversation ends rather quickly when I tell the person that no I am an official instead.  Sometimes I am lucky enough to have them ask what I do as an official but then they quickly […]

Recently I finished reading an excellent book titled, “Mind Gym: An Athlete’s Guide to Inner Excellence” by Gary Mack. For the hypersensitive side of me, this is exactly what I needed to calm my nerves as I’m still at the beginnings of the exciting journey of flat track roller derby.
