The Beehive Skate Revolution

Exploring one of Utah's biggest recreational roller derby leagues.
Roller derby season may be wrapping up for most of the leagues over the next two months, but for recreational leagues, they've still got the winter to look forward to. Those who love derby, and either want to stay in shape and have fun during the offseason, or don't care to be competitive and just want to skate in an open bout, there are options around the Wasatch Front for everyone.

Boardwalk Longboards

A look into the longboards made by this Lehi-based business.
Before summer finally goes away and it gets too windy or cold to do anything, people are getting in their last good licks for skateboarding of every variety, from a few lingering competitions to causal events. This is also roughly the time you see some people buying new boards if their current ones are worn out, do a little testing and get some time in before they go to the closet for six months.

Half & Half Skate and Snow

A chat with the owner of what's becoming SLC's most popular skate shop.
Ever since The Shred Shed was forced to vacate its comfy, awesome home on Exchange Place, the former music venue was looking like an empty hole on what was becoming a revitalized side street in downtown SLC. Earlier this year, the long vacancy was filled with one of the best possible additions to the area we've seen in a while: a skate shop.

SaltAir Cycles

A look into the cyclocross bikes coming from this SLC shop.
If you haven't had the chance to check out a cyclocross race, you might kick out of the competition. These races are usually held in the colder months (originally in Western Europian countries and then catching on hard in the U.S. in the '60s), with long obstacle courses involving heavy-duty bikes and racers carrying their cycles through sections and then speeding through the hard terrain.

Club GSL

Preparing for summer early with SLC's volleyball club
We may be dealing with lingering snow that we should have gotten back in February, but that doesn't mean people aren't looking ahead to the spring and summer months, as athletes start training for outdoor activities. A sport that doesn't get a lot of attention in Utah is volleyball, and you might be surprised to learn some outstanding teams play in SLC, as well as college teams that do exceptionally well.

Women's Ice Hockey at Utah

A look into the women's hockey team at the U.
Hockey appreciation in Utah is a rare thing. Don't believe me? Here's a statistic for you: As of the date and time I'm writing this, the Utah Grizzlies are #1 in our division, and one of the best in the Western Conference for the ECHL.

Taiwanese Animators create delightful animated clip of Kaelin Clay fumble

The University of Utah has a long history of premature celebrations, but none of them have then been animated to show players drinking Champagne on the field, dancing with bikini-clad ladies and riding horse-sized ducks. But thanks to Taiwanese Animators, the geniuses behind absurd CGI renditions of national news stories, we now have this important piece of Utah history immortalized for future generations.
