My thoughts go out to one of the newer ladies on the team this past weekend, who suffered a skate-to-the-back at practice and subsequently needed some medical treatment. I know that injuries within the sport happen all of the time, but when it hits home, it sort of put things into perspective. Roller derby is a real sport; we all work just as hard as any other team of athletes when we're out skating on the rink. We risk injuries every night, and we keep coming back for more because we love it!
