You guys, I totally geeked right out this past weekend. Let me share with you what I experienced.

As you know, I am a bit of a geek when it comes to my hobby, roller derby. I play on a roller derby team with my team, Demolitia Derby Queens, and I love to go to tournaments to watch other teams. So this past weekend, I went to Kalamazoo, Michigan for the K-Town Shakedown. A tournament that consists of a ton of roller derby teams from around the area including Canada, playing roller derby for the whoel weekend. I know! Pretty much my heaven.

When I got to Wings Event Center in Kalamazoo, I was met with a ton of great people. Of course, the roller derby community is always welcoming. You will find all kinds of fun people outside of the people on the track. I mean, just look at this guy right here getting his nap on:

For the record, I am still working on that one. But if you are ever interested in checking out what roller derby has to offer in the ways of entertainment and athletic fun, check out at 'bout' or game. Of course this is the perfect time to leave my team's schedule right about here:

Alright, I'll stop geeking out and end my shameless plug for my roller derby team. But seriously, if you haven't taken in modern roller derby, you should. You'll become a fan!
