And so it begins

Hello and welcome.

I'm about to attempt something crazy and thought I'd take you all along for the ride. Ever since I watched the movie Whip it! and went to watch a roller derby bout a few weeks ago I've been totally entranced by the world of roller derby to the point I thought 'I so have to do this'. So here we are.

So why bother blogging about it? I'm a lazy arse who has been known to quit things when it all gets a little too hard so I figure by posting about it it makes me accountable. Plus I'm pretty shy (unless it involves Liverpool then I become a nutter) so it'll help me get of my shell a bit.

I'll try and make it fun, interesting, provide facts, list the highlights and not so good moments (I'm sure there will be a lot of stacks to look forward to).

If I can get over the embarrassment of having my pants fall down in front of the whole school at an athletics carnival when I was in high school then this blogging business shouldn't be too bad, right?
