I was working out on my 60uP Balance Board while watching men’s tennis doubles at Wimbledon. I got to thinking about some of the fun things I did when I was younger. I was a big roller derby fan and actually went to a roller derby school.
The school was in downtown Los Angeles and was led by a roller derby star, David Pound. It was a real blast. The only problem was that he would have all of us in a pack taking laps on the 45-degree derby track. It never failed that some guy in front would fall down and we’d all pile up.
I also discovered roller derby back then was pretty much pre-planned like wrestling. So, after a few weeks I decided roller derby wasn’t for me. Oh well. I went on to become a competitive roller skater, and actually won the state championship three years and placed fourth in the nationals.
I have lots of stories about my years as host of the Newlywed Game, as you can imagine. I’ll share one of those stories with you next time.
