Roller Derby practice tonight- new girls look better than last year's crop initially.
Yes, I said it. This is going to be a banner year for Houston Roller Derby as long as the one team (Burlesque Brawlers) that has shaky leadership gets their house in order.
Imagine shrinkng this league (with 21 NEW girls- and increase of 8 over last yaer's total) to 3 teams from 4. BAD idea. It wuld be a huge step backward. I'm powerless in this one, as usual (that's how I prefer it), but this should be an obvious situation; replace the leadership and start anew with the saem team name (merch, logos and familiarity are already in place). It's not like last year's team captains had any experience going into it- why should it matter? Maybe a team loaded with new girls? THAT would get the crowd talking for sure.
I'm heading to Marfa next week for a week. Going to TCB out in West Texas. I've got to scrounge up a few bucks first, since, after bills this month, I'm basically totally broke. Only two more months of poverty before I start earning a regular wage again.
It's late- outta here- David
