The name "Snarks" comes from two things. One, I'm kind of a snarky person and my mouth has gotten me in trouble on more than one occasions. Also, I am one-half of the team of the blog site, "The Snarking Dead", so that helped decide the variation on my name.
My derby number 882 is related to the character Nomi Marks as well. She was born on August 8, 1988, so 8 and 8 twice is 8888. Ergo, 882.
