Belles and Sirens brought home a double victory from Columbus Ohio. I’m so proud of our league!

Here are some pics from Dr. X:

When we play away bouts, we wear white jerseys.

Look at that fierce pack!

tornado sirens and storm troopers

Wow, what an intense and highly entertaining bout this weekend. NRG overcame Sioux Falls 100 to 89. A VERY close game and a sold out crowd.

Maiden America broke the NRG record with a 28 point jam! (That’s twice as many points as I’ve ever scored in a single jam.) That woman is a super hero!

And, the theme of the night was Star Wars. Great costumes.

special delivery: fresh produce and victory

I had an eventful weekend to say the least. It kicked off with my very first farm fresh delivery. Eating organic and local is something I really want to do more of.

I already eat mostly vegan, but for too long I’ve favored saving money over buying organic. FFD is an (insanely) easy step in the right direction.

Saturday was derby, derby, derby. This was my first home bout as a Tornado Siren. I only jammed once, but I scored 14 points! (photos via Marc and Tom)

The final score: Sirens win 225 – 18 over Derby City (Louisville, KY) Go Team!

Were you at the bout? What did you think?

I’ve been having an amazing weekend, derby and otherwise. Here are a few pics from Naptown vs. Bleeding Heartland. Best photography I’ve seen at a bout yet!!

My mom got to see me skate for the first time!


One of my favorite parts of the whole night was signing autographs
