Miss Gross Conduct

So, my aggressive side has been coming out lately. Some love it, some hate it. I, personally, don't care who hates it. I play roller derby, aggressiveness is to be expected.

Tonight, I was informed that a lot of people think I am going to dethrone the Miss Gross Conduct recipient of last season. I say bring it on!

Listen, you have a split second to make a decision. Sometimes you make the right one, sometimes you make the wrong one. That's what referees are for and why we have penalties.

You can't have it both ways. You can criticize someone for not being aggressive and then when they are, criticize them for that. I have been elbowed plenty of times in the face, I've had fat lips, been kicked in the shins and received plenty of bruises. Do I remember who did all those things? Hell no! It's derby and I expect it. Actually, I WELCOME it.

I wear my bruises with pride. I am, after all, Fonda Bruises! Eat it!
