Want to see something cool? I mean, something so totally cool I am almost cool myself by association?

I give you my friend Shawn, rockin' ROLLER DERBY GIRL. (See? Told ya it was cool.) Check out her helmet:

Here's what she had to say about it:

"i skated with a blank helmet until the day that i scribbled 'jane was here' on it. it may sound silly, but she was on my mind so much and i like to think that her fighting spirit is with me when i play. people always ask me who jane is and i tell them that was the toughest little baby i ever almost knew. i hope it isn't an inappropriate tribute..."

My response? "Are you kidding? That may be the awesomest tribute ever. I mean it. I love it. A little part of my girl's out there kicking ass, and that's the best tribute a person can have."

Shawn went on to say, "i wish i could find a good shot of my knocking someone down but jane was here about to build a wall and knock this jammer out". I'm not sure what that last part means, but I'm pretty sure it's awesome.
