Then New Hampshire Roller Derby (NHRD) did something yesterday that exploded my Facebook into a sea of unbelievable links, all directing users to this picture on NHRD's page:
|Uh, that is me.|
Mack Truck Mel has gone so far as to say that any donation received that beat hers (over twenty) would result in her hand-washing the donor's derby pads. If you're not familiar with derby, cleaning one's pads is the modern day equivalent of Hercules cleaning out the Augean Stables.
Dread and I have been floored by this incredibly kind, over-the-top gesture. Not only did they take up the helm, they stormed the internets and have collected money from people all over the country. In one day, they've made half of their goal within twenty-four hours.
|Judging by this graphic, the plane needs more "fuel."|
This is an amazing gesture from the ladies that allowed me to go on their mic in their first season and keep inviting me back due to my ability to exhibit qualities that I am still unsure I possess. They're so generous, that they're even giving stuff away. Apparently, the top donors will win a pair of VIP passes to NHRD's 2012 season, NHRD merch and other schwag!
It's one thing to be thanked for what you do for a league, it's another thing entirely to be treated like you're that vital to their personal lives. NHRD forever has my heart and my loyalty. As their league continues to grow and compete, I'll be there. And I hope you all will, too.
