|Promotion is never ending|
as Meg poses with Party
Modern roller derby is an international sport dominated by all-female amateur teams, in addition to a growing number of male, co-ed, and junior roller derby teams, and was (as a roller sport) under consideration for the 2020 Olympics. Most modern leagues (their back-office volunteers included) share a strong "do it yourself" ethic which combines athleticism and elements from camp, and feminist aesthetics consistent with third-wave feminism. As of 2012 the Women's Flat Track Derby Association, or WFTDA, had 172 leagues.

At the half time of the B game, Meg had to begin paying off on a Super Bowl bet. She of course had the ill-fated, over classed Broncos who totally collapsed against the Seahawks, the favorite team of one of her team mates. As a result, Meg has to sing a song at each home bout, selected and modified by the winner. Tonight it was "We are champions of the world." I captured the performance on video and was going to post it here but frankly it was so bad that I didn't want to subject friends and family to seeing and hearing it unless that actively chose to do so. So, if you want to experience it, click here to go to the YouTube video of the performance(?)
This morning I leave for Kansas City.
