Ohh, That Girl! by Gore May

What the hell is Gore May all about? I have asked myself that question about a million times now….

I remember the night my friend talked me into going to the bar for a recruitment night, and all I was thinking was, “Holy shmoley, people actually play roller derby?” I walked into the bar sporting a fever and runny nose, so sure I’d want to leave as soon as I showed up, but these ladies instantly had me captivated. I had no clue what I was signing myself up for. But there will never be a day when I regret joining this sport.

For the first few months there were days when I couldn’t even sit down to pee without being in agonizing pain, but I put on my big girl panties and kept at it.  It’s funny how many people seem astonished that I would even partake in this sport. Most think I’m too scrawny or too small, but to that I say “PSSSSHHHHHH, there’s no such thing!” It makes me laugh that people seem surprised that I would play this kind of sport.

Despite all the skepticism, and these two crazy bruise filled years, I’m glad I stuck around. This team has stolen my heart, and inspired me to do more than I imagined I could some days.

To anyone considering joining this sport, DO IT! Don’t doubt yourself, everything is with trying at least once.
