Yowza! Looks like somebody fell in a giant pile of awesome. That reminds us, GIVE US YOUR HAIR. And your speed.
Name: WreckLiz N Dangerous
Team: Lone Star Assassins
League: Assassination City
Years in derby: I started in Dec 2010.
Position: Jammer for the most part, not that great of a blocker yet.
Fave Hex style: I think they are called the Rachel, the high-waisted shorts. Great for Derby!
Fishnets or socks: Socks all the way.
Favorite band (don’t be a music snob): Boondox, Tech N9ne, Sublime (were i got my derby number), Mudvayne, Bob Marley, MSI, SoAD, Tool, i can go on…
Pre bout snack: Anything I can get my hands on, I’m a total fat kid on the inside. Except coffee, I TRY not to drink coffee the day of a game…and I LOVE coffee, drinking it right now.
Derby wife: None at the moment
Derby crush (scandalous!): Are you talking about the people I obsessively stare at when they’re skating? Lol, I don’t know. There are a lot of skaters who I want to be more like, somehow obtain their awesome derby skillz. I did have a Derby crush on Calypso Crash, but she retired right as she was helping me better my hip check, broke my heart.
What got you involved in this zany sport we all love: CASTRO! well and an observer recruitment ad. I saw the ad and called her, she was very excited to say the least.
Tell us about your favorite derby moment (on or off the track): On man that’s hard. I don’t know if I have a favorite, I love it all. Anytime there is not drama its great and I have a blast. The most recent thing I did was skating Fair park for the 4th of July passing out flyers, sounds like work but I had a blast. I would say I have more fun working different events, because you get to know the girls you’re skating with better.
How do you train?: Derby practice 2-3 times a week, sometimes 4. It’s like learning a new language, you pick it up faster if you are completely submerged in it. I also skate trails with friends and walk my dog!
How do you psych yourself up for a bout?: HA! I actually have to calm myself down, I am so nervous the days before a game. I just tell myself its another practice. After I’m on the track though everything is great!
Best injury story?: So far nothing more than rink rash, a sprained ankle and a sore knee.
Which is more rock and roll: a prius or an argyle sweater? Please expound on why: Wow…seeing that I don’t know what an argyle sweater is when compared to a regular sweater, I say prius. Why….well like I said wtf is an argyle sweater?!
