Mighty Mothra Mega Update

Mighty Mothra Mega Update
July 2nd, 2008

Known for his rapid rise as a relentless jammer, Mothra came to epitomize the can-do spirit and success of our club. As his proud teammate, it pains me to be sharing news concerning the injury he suffered during our game this past Sunday rather then simply extolling his virtues as an intelligent, hard-working, selfless man.

While jamming early in the second half, Mothra, inadvertently tripped up with an opposing skater, took an unlucky fall which caused multiple breaks in the lower half of his leg. He was immediately rushed to a local hospital where he received surgery the following day.

I am pleased to report the surgery was successful and he is expected to make a full recovery. However, the pain has yet to stabilize and a difficult journey lies ahead. Please take solace in the fact that his family, friends, and teammates are with him now and will be with him the whole way through.

Mothra would like to thank everyone who has sent their well-wishes to date. He is in deep appreciation of this outpouring of sympathy. All of this caring will ease the time spent before skates come back on his feet and he returns to his rightful place on the track.

Block Low, Skate Hard, and Make an “M” for Mothra
