HRD Sirens Celebrate NF Awareness Day with Reggie!

Reggie Bibbs and Rod "Dirty Sanchez" Lozano“May 17th was World Neurofibromatosis (NF) Awareness Day and the Psych Ward Sirens celebrated with long time Siren fan Reggie Bibbs.

 Reggie lives with NF and is the founder of the Just Ask! Foundation. Just Ask! is a non-profit organization dedicated to spreading awareness about NF through the people most affected by it.

You’ll often see Reggie at bouts with his friend Lou Congelio. Reggie and Lou were named Super Fans of Houston Roller Derby at the league’s awards banquet earlier this year.

For more information about NF and Just Ask!, you can go to www.justaskfoundation.org

– Rod Lozano,  Coach, Psych Ward Sirens

 

Ok, this is Lou talking now and I want to thank Rod “Dirty Sanchez” Lozano for putting together a night that Reggie and I will not soon forget!

As soon as we got through the doors, we were greeted by Rod with the wonderful poster card you see in the photograph signed by all the members of the Sirens.

But it didn’t stop there, Rod then set up an impromptu photo sessionwhere all of the Sirens came to get their photo taken with Reggie!

Then, on top of that, Rod bought two Just Ask tshirts and made a MAJOR contribution to the Just Ask Mobile Bus Fund!!!

Thank you, Rod, “Dirty” and all of the Sirens for an incredible evening of love, friendship, and the best Derby action on the Planet Earth!!!

Just Ask! Foundation to be Honored at Houston Roller Derby Opener, Saturday, March 19!!!!

It’s back!

Hot, sweaty roller derby action is back in Houston and Lou and I will be there every match this season! Season starts Saturday, March 19th, at their new venue at Houston Indoor Sports on I-45. Sure will miss some of the skaters that retired last year but look forward to meeting the new skaters who are taking their place.

If you have never experience Houston Roller Derby, you must come out on March 19th! Forget everything you think about roller derby! This is the real deal! Forget the fake stuff you’ve seen on TV and the movies, these are real live women who live in Houston and who have regular jobs during the week, just like you and me, who love to skate and bang heads!

During the week, these girls are account executives, IT security analysts, lawyers, med school students, teachers, and massage therapists but on weekends, they are Hell on Wheels!!!

This season, the Just Ask! Foundation is once again humbled and touched to be honored by the Houston Roller Derby as their Charity for March 2011! This is a very prestigious honor and we have been extremely fortunate to have received this honor from HRD for the past four years!!!!

I love Houston Roller Derby! The women who skate are tough on the outside but are the sweetest, most wonderful people on the inside. Every time I go, they make me feel like I’m the most important person in the world!

Please come out and join Lou and I as we support the only professional sports team in Houston that you can buy a drink for afterward!!!

– Reggie Bibbs and Lou Congelio
