5’5”, 5’6” on a good day, a GIANT on quads
Smelly shoulder brace, braids, lip whore, skating backwards, talking shit at the jammer line, Über competitive, having Papa Casbah yell “Let’s Rock the Casbah” at any sporting event (or even when we leave to go to the Big Boy’s down the street).
Spooning and/or making out with Putas, my derby wife Karma, scotch, good beer, my derby mistress Honey Homicide, coffee, breakfast tacos, cheap beer … well lonestar (or single star as I like to refer to it), music by the Clash, after parties, NPR, my derby husband Chicago Jimmy, Tiny houses, cribbage, Irish whiskey, managing/coaching other teams, people that go as Rocky Casbah for Halloween (looking at you Neibs!)
Hellcats, dancing (unless I’m drunk enough), yoga, high heels, losing at anything, and Brett Farve
Shoulder subluxation, arthritis (thank you high heels and yoga), poked eye/lost contact, fractured rib, and being concussed
Favorite Derby Moment
Cherry Bombs winning the Calvello Cup Championship in 2010, and having my dad be there to cheer me on. Also, getting Derby Married to my derby husband (Chicago Jimmy) in San Diego at the 3rd Battle on the Bank and running into the ocean after our nuptials!
Fake running into things and being able to unclasp your bra with one hand without you noticing until I walk away.
She-e-os, Chola, Smother Theresa, Sister Mary Jane, Cherry Chainsaw, Varuca Assault, Ginjure Scraps, and my clone/twin sister Krista (yes, there is another one out there…. too bad she’d rather play golf!)
Cheapskate, Jackie Daniels (of Whip It!, Grand Raggidy, and Windy City Rollers fame), Krissy Krash and Iron Maiven of LADD, Curly Suicide, Athena De Crime of Windy City Rollers, Beyonslay of Gotham Girls Roller Derby, Punky Bruiser, and Holly Peno
The Red Coats of TXRD, Evil-E of LADD and Mr. Timurphy
Why I Skate
You have your excuses, I have my reasons why…
