Never Skate With Scissors, And Other Advice For Surviving Roller Derby
http://www.derbylife.com/articles/2011/ ... ller_derby

A few of my favorites:

Do not judge yourself based on the ability of others; it’s not fair to anyone. Your talents are unique and every bit as important to this sport as everyone else’s.

Push yourself. The amount you are able to achieve will shock and amaze you.

Don’t limit yourself. If you need to throw up, do it. Then get back on the track and finish your laps.

Be respectful of the Refs. They are human beings. Bad calls will happen. You will get pissed off. Assume the best of intentions. Forgive and move on.
