It's Friday!

Good news! I figured out that it is Friday and the week is coming to a close. For some of you this means the beginning of the shortest off-season known to mankind. It may be the first weekend in eleven months that you don't have to go to at least one practice. For others of you, this is the beginning of retirement. Let me say thank you for sharing your skill, intensity and larger than life personality with us while you did. This is a sport that will remember you and hopefully you will treasure the moments the sport and it's women have given to you. For the rest of us, it is simply another day of punching the clock. This is not our job but we will preform as though our lives depended on it. We are the few and maybe the sick that simply love to be getting better. It is our honor to play and we will pay the price to do it well. If you are just beginning, welcome, and don't let this intimidate you. One day, hopefully soon enough, you will have the opportunity to enter the arena, to be deafened by the music and the crowd screaming in your favor, to feel your pulse rate quicken as the first hit of the bout looms heavy in the air. You will hear your name read as a member of an elite league of women, you will look down the track and realize that you have paid the price to be hear. You will see the love and respect in the other players eyes as you prepare to take the track. You will feel the surge of emotion, love for the game, hate for the fear of loss, pain that has been inflicted and which you mean to inflict. This is being a roller girl and I have never met one that said it wasn't all worth it. Thank you to those that play, to those that ref, to those that coach, and to those who love the sport. To those that are leaving, you will be missed. To those who are staying, we love you all the more for it! Now go to work!
