Thank You, Fresh Meat

I'm skating in the third bout in three weeks tomorrow. This on the tail end of something derby related every night this week. I was starting to suffer overload and then today I went and helped at try outs and there is nothing like seeing derby through a new skater's eyes. It's like watching a kid ride the Ferris wheel the first time, sheer terrified excitement followed by giants smiles and a willingness to go around again. Thank you for making it new again ladies.

I know the feeling you mean. I am now pretty much running the fresh meat program for my team. I absolutely love to see the look on a new skater's face when something just clicks. It rekindles my love of the game every time.
