just another weekend

so this weekend I’m reffing and announcing.

Saturday in Lafayette in Acadiana Rollergirls’ season opener against Cajun Rollergirls. two of my favorite announcers will be on the Mic, DJ TJ and Stash Merkin. They work quite well with each other, they oughta have their own podcast or something.

Sunday night I’ll be back home in Houston and announcing for Rocket City Roller Girls’ season opener against South Texas Rolleristas from McAllen, TX.  more to come on Monday

Just a Roller Derby announcer, former I referee, rock the mic and in the past I have been known to wear a sexy pink shirt. I share my point of view formerly from inside of the track and now, wherever the announcers booth is. www.facebook.com/derbystripes Or derbystripes.wordpress.com

    Thanks for the love! Podcast? Negative. But we are opening our own pastry / exotic piercing shop called Stash and T.J.’s Cream Dream Bootique..

    Derby love from El Paso! I’m an NSO this weekend for EPRD and my second son will be experiencing his first bout this Saturday 🙂

    Looking forward to it! Thank you so much for the shout-out 🙂 I like the idea of a podcast if I have any time leftover from piercing pastries. Whaddya think TJ, 12ga? I think 16 gauge is too flimsy for a cupcake.
