Happy Father’s Day!

Don’t know what to get your Dad for Father’s Day? Don’t worry. We got a ton of events coming up for Father’s Day that will get him out of the house and away from the La-Z-Boy. He doesn’t need a new tie, he needs to go see a comedy show, go to a bacon feed or maybe a roller derby bout. Whatever he’s into, we got events that will surely brighten up his special day.

Bob Noxious’ Hair Reports from Derby-Land!

Josh Gates opens his show, “Destination Truth” by saying: “In my travels, I’ve experienced some unexplainable things, and I’ve done some things I can’t quite explain.” So, I’m going to us that as the perfect opening for this blog post and an overall description of my derby career.

A rich and anecdotal history revolves around today’s topic… my hair. Specifically, the lack of it. I’m my own hair stylist! I know, it’s hard to tell. Early on, I was renown for flamboyant (a fancy word for “stupid”) hair cuts that changed with every bout. I’ll admit, I got tired of the effort and my kids were tired of hiding from Daddy. So, it’s on a rare occasion that I do anything unusual to my hair these days. This is the set up for a recent rare occasion. With my hair being the focal point of this post, I think a little “history of the hair” is in order. This isn’t even close to the sampler platter of the “Atrocities to Bob’s Head” menu.

We even have a roller girl working in our Client Services call center.
