I wasn’t able to draw at the time the Pacific Rim sequel was announced, so to compensate, I animated all the drift compatibles dancing horribly in celebration of the upcOMING ANIMATED SERIES 8V

OH MY GOD THIS IS PURE GOLD I LOVE THIS SO MUCH

Everything about this.

One more game to go

So as inaugural seasons go - I think Jersey Boys has come out of the gate running.

In on year we have:

  • Formed a team
  • Filled a roster
  • Picked up a referee
  • picked up some fresh meat recruits we are training for next season
  • Successfully joined the MRDA
  • played in our first tournament at the Mohawk Valley Cup

We are 5 - 5 with one more game to go.  

The low points have been that we have taken on a lot of injuries.  At present we have three skaters down due to damaged knees, ankles and broken ribs respectively.  Another one of our core group is going back to school for additional paramedic training and wont be available for almost a year.  We’ve had a few peoples skates complete blow out after the MVC - so right now the bench for that last game is looking thin.

But we’ve skated thin before, and if anything hanging out with the guys from Vermont was a real revelation about playing the game because you love it, not to win it.  I’d rather say we gave it all we had with who was there than just give up because conditionals weren’t optimal. 

Whoa - I’m teaching

Last Tuesday the Garden State Roller girls were having their charter team try outs - so all the ladies were on the track and pushing it. hard.  This left all the freshies on their own, so I took it upon myself to spend the night going over basic skills and working on helping them get confident with basics.

Oh man was this fun.  I had them pushing against walls to feel a cross over, shuffling, I think I said the phrases “Good, now get lower” “More power” and “Commit to the stop, dont worry about falling over” enough times that I’m sure people are having nightmares about it. But we worked on transitions, and plows, and toe stops. we worked on form, and moving the arms properly when skating. There was improvement and confidence gains all around.

When it was all done I had all the new girls and two guys come over in small clumps or individually to thank me, tell me I am relentless and that I am a great instructor and they all had a lot of fun.  

And I was added by GSR to their fresh meat coaching staff.

So THIS is what it feels like to have complete satisfaction with what you do.  I wish I could find a way to instruct like this all the time.

Then’s no need for me to come over there.

cannot wait for the sequel and bridge comics to start…

cannot wait for the sequel and bridge comics to start…

So skatingwithscissors and I have been pimping out Ye Old Gothic Homestead since she got back on the 10th.  Our book shelves are all up, the work room is becoming an amazing craft space for making ‘STUFF’ and the various artworks are going up on the walls.
Cohabitation is awesome!
