With Austin's Lonestar Rollergirls playing this weekend at Cuero's Turkeyfest, I've spent some time dreaming about being a rollergirl myself.

Those who know me would say this is the perfect sport for me, as I was kicked off my junior high basketball team for punching a girl in the face and am super competitive in contact sports. I agree, and if Victoria had a league, I would definitely sign up, after I figure out how to roller skate again, of course.

I've started with a few names that I need help choosing between:

Band-Aid Betty

Riveting Rosie

Bone Crusher Bonnie

So weigh in! And make sure you get out to Turkeyfest Sunday from 1 to 3:30 for the game at the main pavilion.
