kittens vs. cougars mash-up

saturday was the second mash-up that i got to skate in. you can read about the first one here. i just have to say. i had so much FUN! before the bout, i felt as if i was going to puke. i always get those butterflies in my stomach and it makes me so anxious.

the week leading up to the bout, we all got cocky on facebook and were posting pictures of cougars and kittens etc... here are a few of the photos i posted trying to be funny...

before the bout, lavalley of death told us all she would do our makeup. she gave us really neat looking cheetah print on our eyes. she was awesome! before our bout and during the special ops bout, my job was track repair. i fixed the track during the break between periods. i was starting to get super stoked on strapping on my skates and getting out there. 

 our track manager was massey graves, and our coach was my team captain, le'thal. my team, the kittens, consisted of newer skaters under thirty and the cougars consisted of newer skaters 30 and over. there were like two girls on the cougars that weren't actually thirty just yet, but they needed a fuller roster. anyways.... i really can't tell you play for play because it seemed to go SO FAST. i do remember jamming and scoring 5 points.... i do remember going to the box 3 times for elbowing... i need to work on my hip hits... and i do remember that we WON!!! 108-73! afterwards, my family and friends went to sports city, since that was the only place open close to all of us, and we chowed down and i drank two huge beers and ate some delish boneless buffalo wings-my favorite always. (thanks niena!)

and now, the photos...

myself and stone cold jane austen hugging after the bout and because i gave her some awesome unicorn earrings because she loves unicorns.


my after bout dinner consisted of boneless buffalo wings with celery and 2 tall miller lights.


i really did have such a great time. it was so nice having all the support of my friends and family there with me. i wouldn't have been the same without them. i hope they had as much fun as i did! i cannot wait until i get to skate another bout. now i know why we work so hard during practice! it's so very rewarding. i feel fortunate to be a part of such an amazing league and team. i do not see an end to my passion for roller derby, ever!

on a side note, when i woke up sunday morning, i noticed that my blue numbers had smeared onto my pillow... ooops... next time, i will remember to scrub them harder in the shower... hahaha!
