Inspiration: Sugar Skulls

We won!  We won!  I’m very excited.  You’re probably not super excited (or even know what I’m talking about), but it’s my blog, so I get to talk about what I want.

My roller derby league had their championship bout on Saturday, and my team, the Sugar Skulls, battled for third place (out of four) against the Royal Crush.  I’ve been on the team for about a year and a half, and we’ve never won a game. But this weekend, everything came together so well!  We fought super hard and kicked so much butt.  We ended up beating the Crush by almost 90 points (which is quite a lot).

Here we are yelling… or something… not sure what.1274419_565660210137289_415152936_oI got to jam!  I scored points for the first time ever in a real bout!

Anyway, I’m super proud of all my teammates.  We all worked our butts off and played so well together.

In celebration of our Skull-y victory, let’s do some skull-y knitting:
