8. Invite ABC 4’s Chris Vanocur to skate a few laps in fishnets and a tutu on the 5 o’clock news.

nn

7. Tip off the Deseret Morning News’ Chris Hicks that some local women (with tattoos!) are getting uppity.

nn

6. Challenge Real Salt Lake to a soccer-on-wheels match. Winner gets a stadium.

nn

5. Debate mayors Rocky Anderson and Tom Dolan on KUTV’s Take Two over where the stadium should be built.

nn

4. Pitch a feature to Catalyst about holistic healing for physical injuries and aura damage caused by roller skates to the face.

nn

2. Guest on KBER’s Freak Show with Mick & Allen to discuss boobies.

nn
