If someone had asked me to sing the national anthem to kick off a sporting event, my quick response would have been “I’m probably not the guy for that”. But when my friend Chelle (AKA Chelle F.U. Up) asked me to sing The Star-Spangled Banner at the opening of their “Sk8full Dead” Roller Derby bout in Albany Oregon in October, I was like… “How do you say no to girls named Hot Boxxx and Natural DisASSter?”
So here it is. My first public act of patriotism. And following this, our Sicktown Derby Dames went on to play a tight game, smashing out the Lilac City Roller Girls from Spokane in an extremely close bout.
Support your local derby girls. And God bless the USA.
