Anything else to tell us?
Derby is better than therapy, I can tell if I've gone too long without a scrimmage in my life. Worries of the world vanish once you put your skates on and start to hand out the smack down. I've played sports my entire life and have been valued as an athlete, but never felt truly valued as an individual outside the court/field. Derby is a different story: I have never felt so included on and off the track, derby is the way to go. I started my love affair with derby three years ago and have barely scratched the surface of this lusty romance.
