Dear Derby Diary,

Okay – So much has happened since I last blogged. I don't know where to start – maybe with the fact that I finally remembered my blog password…


Let's begin with the new Cracker album, ‘Sunrise In The Land Of Milk And Honey’ – LOVE IT!

It’s a great mixture of all things Cracker. If you’re a die hard fan like me, you'll hear a little of Cracker’s original punk rock ethos mixed with the more focused and mature Cracker of today. It's like watching the super cool punks from back in the day become the super cool tattooed dads that aged well and can still rock. Maybe I’m aging myself (and them) here, but I love both the old and new Cracker and everything in between. It’s why I really like this CD. I have a new favorite song each time I listen. Every song has the both sound of nostalgia and a little surprise of something new. Check it out at


And what the hell does this have to do with derby? Well, I'll tell you…

On bout day each derby girl has her own routines & rituals. Call us superstitious, but it's these rituals that make it possible to play the blood-sport that we do. One of my rituals is listening to music – this calms me down and pumps me up. Cracker is my go-to band and they’re always in my ears before each bout.


Speaking of bouts…we have an exciting one coming up this weekend. We play the Pink Pistols from Washington state. We’re also getting a proclamation from the city's mayor and a skate key to the city. How rad is that? I can't wait to see the doors that key will open!


Oh, by the way…how awesome is our new website?

Thanks to all the derby girls and SCDG supporters who helped put it together. XOXOXOX
