In Which I Have Roller Derby Drafts Tomorrow And It Is Snowing

Seriously, my sister takes awesome pictures.
It's snowing outside right now, which is lovely.  I'm perfectly happy to welcome the picturesque white stuff just so long as it's all melted by tomorrow evening so they won't cancel roller derby drafts.  If I have to wait another week to find out if I'm on a team I'm relatively sure it will kill me.

Okay, so maybe that's a slight exaggeration.  I might barely survive, though I'd probably be horribly maimed or something.  But seriously; we New Bruisers (as the derby hopefuls are affectionately called in our league) have put three months of sweat, tears and (occasionally) blood into preparing for tomorrow, and so the mere thought of drafts being postponed makes me start hyperventilating just a little bit.

So provided the weather cooperates, I'll be going in for draft interviews tomorrow.  Hopefully by the end of the night I'll know whether or not I made a team, and if I did make one (oh happy day!), which team I'll be joining.  There are four teams in my league: the Maurading Mollys, the Trampires, the Femme Fianna, and the Hellbound Homewreckers.  All of them are looking to potentially pick up a few new skaters, and all of them are awesome.  I'd be thrilled to make any one of them!

If I don't make a team this round of drafts, it's certainly not the end of the world.  That just means that I need more skating experience before I can play with the vets, and so I'll continue to practice with the New Bruiser pool until the next round of drafts.  We'll just have to see how things play out.  Either way I still get to keep skating, which is great news as far as I'm concerned.  Not that I would stop skating regardless.  Really, I'm seriously addicted at this point.

What derby girl could be complete without an awesome roller derby name?  I have my gigantic name pool narrowed down to five potential names, and which one I'll ultimately choose as my alter-ego will depend entirely on what team I ultimately (whether this round of drafts or later) end up skating for.  I'm keeping them under wraps for now, but if I make a team tomorrow I'll make a final decision and announce it here. 

So wish me luck tomorrow, and bring on the warm weather!

Good luck and I hope that the derby drafts aren't cancelled.

Seriously, my sister looks hella hot on wheels. You'll kick that interview's butt. And its little dog's too. Wugaboo!

Haha, all the snow was pretty much melted this morning when I woke up in the U-District (Seattle.) So here's hoping drafts weren't cancelled. :)
