All sports is about winning. To become the best. To put in enough hours to become the fastest, the strongest. And it's about winning in roller derby too. It's just there are different ways of winning. To win alone. To win together. Or to win, but at the same time to root for the loosing team. Or maybe not root for them, but to want them to succeed, to win a couple of jams. It's about putting your heart in it and in the club, and it's about inclusion. I don't know any other sport where being different and not fitting into the box is welcomed more. And it's not until you haven't been participating for a year, you notice how much you miss it, to roll around on four wheels hitting friends. I popped in on the Challenge today, and ended up as NSO (Non Skating Officials, one of the many keeping track of the practical things during a roller derby bout.) I watched a bit from the bleacher with my knitting, but ended up watching it from the score board keeping scores for one team. A break in my studying, ended up as longer break and not as much knitting as planned. But the rest of the evening is just studying. (While I'm counting how long it is until I can dig out my skates again.) I'm knitting a top, actually test knitting a top, and I love it. The yarn is A Touch of Twist, and I bought it in Rhinebeck. Love it, and it's just great to knit with.
