I have the jitters for a lot of reasons, but the major one is that I’m going to Wreckers tonight, and it’ll be a scrimmage-heavy practice. I AM PLAYING DERBY TONIGHT OMG. It’s been over two months since I skated a derby practice, but I feel pretty primed.
Oh, and last night, I started getting trained to do Action Stats, which is not easy, but it’s also a really fun NSO position. It’s the kind of thing that’s likely to make me a better player, too, because it essentially boils down to watching what happens to/around the jammer, and judging whether it was effective or not.
So, I get to watch a lot of derby, nerd out about gameplay, and do a service for the players–they’ve been begging for action stats at home team games for a while now–and that’s just about the best job I can think of.
Somewhat hilariously, I’ll be doing this position for the season opener. Teehee.
