He's pretty humble, so I guess I gotta bring this up myself.

Thomas Gerbasi, our resident derby scribe, has a great article up on derbylife.com this week

http://www.derbylife.com/articles/2012/05/sportswriting

I added my own comment to it there, so I won't repeat it here, other than to reiterate gobs of appreciation.

I guess with Jon "Bones" Jones DUI and Arianny Celeste's domestic abuse arrests TG needed something happy to write about.

So when IS his article the the May 5th bout??????

Awesome article Thomas. Thank you for caring about your craft. Each article you write about GGRD and derby helps to legitimize and authenticate our sport.

We are very lucky to have Thomas, the best derby writer in the biz. Having done writeups myself, I can tell you how difficult it is to write even the simplest of game recaps.
