have you ever met a person that you’re forced to mantain a level of cold civility towards but if you could you would totally punch them as hard as you could but you can’t so every second you’re forced to be around them you’re thinking of smashing their face in just so they’ll shut up

This could have the derby caption: “when a skater falls behind you and tries to grab you for stability”
Oh J-Law, how I love thee
(Oh skaters who do that, how I don’t)

We need to raise £15,000 in 15 weeks to get our A team to the USA for this year’s East Coast Derby Extravaganza.
We’re one of only seven non-US teams representing and the only UK team on the line up, something we’re super proud of.
We can’t wait to take part in our first US tournament but we really need as much support as we can to get there. Please check out our Go Fund Me page and see if you can help - we’re also offering some pretty nifty merchandise as an incentive.
Thanks in advance,
Please help us get to America to take part in ECDX. It’d mean an awful lot to us. Every little helps.
A medal contender in men’s skeleton makes a mistake and fights tears on camera, and it’s brave. Some US women’s hockey players cry after their loss to Canada, and they’re mocked. Of course. They’re women.
This quote sums it up so perfectly:
"I’m of the opinion that no matter a person’s gender, there’s actually nothing wrong with crying, even in public, even in a hockey jersey. It’s not exclusively “feminine” behavior, and even if it were, “feminine” is not bad. In life, as in hockey, we cry when we experience a loss that we feel deeply, a disappointment that we truly care about. We cry when we have failed to achieve the dreams for which we’ve worked the hardest, and believed so strongly we could make true. And sometimes we cry when we DO achieve those dreams, for the same reasons. It’s good to cry, because it means that we give a shit. It means we’re passionate. It should not be embarrassing. It’s just part of living a life in which we care about things.
So I don’t blame either John Daly OR the US Women’s hockey team for letting a few tears fall; it says nothing about their “toughness,” their sportsmanship, or their ability at their chosen sport. All it communicates is that they driven to win, like all competitive athletes are, and there is absolutely nothing shameful about that.”
