Dani Killafornia #49

"You wish they all could be Killafornia girls."

Join Date?
June 2010 (but I first started playing roller derby with the Arch Rival Roller Girls in St. Louis in 2008).
First bout?
My very first bout (with ARRG) was in Feb. 2009, but my first bout with my lovely Dutchies was in Oct. 2010.
Best position?
Even though now I'm on the NSO squad, I'd loved to be a jammer!
What brought you to DDR?
When I lived in St. Louis my boss played roller derby and convinced me to give it a try...I've been hooked ever since. The first thing I did when I found out I was moving to PA was look up the closest derby team, and I really lucked out getting to play with a fantastic league like Dutchland.
What keeps your wheels turning?
The women and men of this league are incredibly fun people. I laugh at every practice, which almost makes all those squats less painful. Almost.
What is your most embarrassing derby moment?
During warm-ups for my very first bout I skated over to two of my teammates who were talking outside the track to ask them a question. Unfortunately, when I tried to stop next to them, I ended up slipping and slamming right into them, knocking all three of us onto the floor. At least the crowd got a good laugh!
What is your proudest derby moment?
I always got butterflies in my stomach whenever I jammed, so any time I was able to make it through the pack I was pretty proud of myself. Scoring points was just icing on the cake!
Impress us with your skating skillz…
I'll juke your face off. And you will like it!!
Derby Props?
Skates: Riedell 195s
Wheels: Currently Tuner Juniors, but I constantly try out different brands and styles. It's my derby addiction!
Protective Gear: A little of this, a little of that.
Must-Haves: Arm bands with my number on them...I hate trying to wash permanent marker off my arms!
Send out some heartfelt derby love to your peeps..
To all the ladies and gents in ARRG, especially the M-80s, for introducing me to roller derby and making me fall in love with it. To my husband, Gianni, for cheering me on and giving me all the hugs I could ask for. To my teammates and coaches, for making me a stronger player and person. To all the fans, sponsors, and volunteers, for making it possible for us to put on bouts and keep playing this crazy sport.
