First Bout?
July 11, 2009
What brought you to DDR?
I saw a bout and thought, “I need to play this sport.”
What keeps your wheels turning?
I’m in love with art and art history, zombie movies, cake bakin’ and booty shakin’.
What is your most embarrassing derby moment?
I was taking an assist from a fellow skater and she said, “Hold on to my shorts!,” so I did, and promptly got checked then I fell and took her shorts with me!
What is your proudest derby moment?
When I got voted MVP by Steel Citys B-Unit after my first bout!!
Got any injury stories?
My wrist makes a weird cracking noise that it never made before, but I’m not concerned. It’s a good show and tell piece. And I have tons of rink-rash scars!
Impress us with your skating skills…
I’m small and sneaky. I’ll get through the pack before you even see me! Also I can skate really low to avoid checks and easily slide by an opponent. Just because I am small doesn’t mean I fall easily!
Derby props?
Skates: Riedell Vandals
Wheels: Flat Outs- Pink- they let me go real fast and slide all over the place
Protective Gear: Scab pads, helmet, and so on.
Must-Haves: like my kneecaps where they are!
