Stupidly, I forgot my camera at home today so I will be unable to load my pictures from Germany. BUT! I still have exciting news to share: On Saturday night I had the privilege of continuing my role as an announcer for the Connecticut Roller Girls. Saturday’s bout was a double header with both the A team and the B team skating against visiting leagues.

Saturday was a little extra special because I got to sit out the Stepford Sabotage bout and provide commentary for Connecticut’s Public Television Station: CPTV. How cool is that? So for those of you who reside in CT, tune into your local CPTV station on Wednesday at 7pm to watch the bout and listen to my play-by-play (along with the CPTV guy Don).

It was SOO much fun. I had a special headset and we got to watch instant replays of the most brutal hits and sweet skating maneuvers – all the while trying to detail what was happening on the track and point out those things viewers should pay attention to.

Admittedly, it was not easy – and felt much different than speaking to a crowd. The commentary was much more informative and far less entertaining. Fewer jokes, more rules. Still, I had tons of fun. I’ll try and record some of the video and post it on the site!

    That had to be one of THE MOST CLICHE RIDDEN sports broadcasts I’ve ever seen. To be fair, there might be a few peeps who haven’t seen the sport, so I give it a C+
