Yesterday I had the pleasure of announcing the CT Death Quads Men’s Roller Derby bout against the Mean Mountain Boys of Vermont. It was a bit different from the ladies’ bouts. The Men’s Roller Derby doesn’t have quite as large a following as the women’s league, so attendance was a lighter than what I’m used to with the women. That said, the fans that were there were enthusiastic and as an announcer it was kinda fun to announce to a more focused crowd. Some of the roller girls came up to compliment me on my announcing which was really nice to hear – thank you roller ladies! I really appreciate your words of encouragement. I’ve only been doing the announcing gig for about a year so I still feel like a mega-newbie. It’s good to hear that I’m occasionally doing things right. Three cheers for Roller Derby!
I’ve faltered a bit on my derby recaps in part due to the onslaught of my workplace. In fact, it has paralyzed my posting life in general but I’m trying to at least keep up with the daily posts for May. We’ll see how it goes. So stay tuned good people, there’s plenty more to come!
