We're down to the wire for those of us in the roller derby community awaiting the culmination of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association's season.

This weekend 12 teams will play for the Hydra Trophy, awarded to the WFTDA's top team each year. will be in Chicago live-Tweeting and covering the tournament, as will numerous other journalists and roller derby enthusiasts.

In preparation, I'll have a blog for each day of the week until the opening day's game (Monday-Friday).

Tuesday: By the numbers

Wednesday: What's in a name?
Thursday: The post-regional power rankings
Friday: Hail, Hydra!

We've been in contact with a few skaters and coaches about some things to watch for at the tournament, and hope you'll enjoy each new entry. And stay tuned. We're hoping to have our Wi-Fi connection up and going to stay connected with everyone.
