Smallpox

Smallpox

It’s not quite official. Xy made the first cut and has been going to practice sessions. The rules are strict and harsh — you have to pass through many circles of hell before you can be considered a Big Easy Roller Girl. And it will be even longer before she sees any action in a bout, I think. For now she is aching all over from her last practice but the bruises so far are minimal. As busy as she is with teaching and mothering, she really doesn’t have time for this. Yet I’ve encouraged her every step of the way (including decorating her helmet last night) because I think it’s important for everyone to have some fun, and some “me” time. This might be the perfect activity for Xy. She’s got a lot of aggression that needs an outlet.

  1. I second Michael Homan’s 1st comment. And I add to his 2nd: Small Pax? Small Rox? But Small Pox is a great roller name.

  2. I thought I remembered Big Easy from one of your posts. Bloomington is set to play Big Easy in NOLA on Sat April 16. And I am hoping to come down to guest announce.

  3. Awesome news. I’m sorry to report Xy had a knee injury which has precluded further rolling — but we will surely be there in the audience.
