Year you started derby?
What team(s) do you play for?
The Hard Cores, The Belles of the Brawl.
What job(s) do you do for the league?
I'm on the grievance committee, half-time show coordinator and Interleague Rep for the Hard Cores.
Do you have a derby hero or a derby crush?
Easy Break Oven (Plays for CRDA and is on Team Alberta): She is like a glorious gazelle on wheels and was my ongoing inspiration throughout fresh meat.
Advice for new skaters?
Because who doesn't love some inspirations from Jake the dog:
"Dude, suckin' at something is the first step towards being sorta good at something. You are like little baby Billys right now." So, you might feel like you're diarrhea on skates, "Jyae-ga seol-sa-rae. Yes, He said 'diarrhea,'" but you will have this moment when you realise oh, "Actually, I think I'm beating it back with sheer willpower."
(grows another lump [ specifically a bruise shaped lump])
Then next thing you know you're going to have vet skaters come up to you and be like, "Seriously, Stanley... For a watermelon, you get into trouble way more often than you should," but you're a majestic gazelle on wheels, so slay.
Anything else to tell us?
