MEET SPEED O'
Name: Speed O'
Years played: This is my 10th season!
How did you first hear about and start playing roller derby? It all started back when MySpace was a thing and I searched for my old skating rink. I found Mistilla on their page and saw that she actually did something with her speed skating background and I had to check it out. Came to my first bout on May 19th, first practice was a Siren practice @ Proctor Park the very next day and the rest is history! Thanks Mistilla and Carmen for pushing me to join this amazing sport!
What is your favorite piece of derby gear? My uniform, I wear my Valkyrie uniform with pride! My team is made up of an amazing group of ladies that are supportive and positive on and off the track! PoV!
Theme song: Turn Down For What
Awesome rain storms
Curling up on the couch with a good book
Kisses on the forehead
Cheering people up, even if I embarrass myself doing it!
Giving little things to people to show them that I am thinking of them.
Puppies... well all animals really!
Non-verbal communication with someone I am close to!
People who expect me to conform to their way of thinking!
A rain storm that prohibits me from riding my Harley!
Scalding hot food that burns my mouth, but I continue eating because it so good!
Injuries sustained during derby?
February 17, 2013 broke my right ankle playing derby, and I now have a plate and 10 pins.
November 19, 2013 broke my left ankle @ derby practice and walked around for 6 weeks thinking it was a sprain.
Black eye last year @ one of the games and always lots of bruises and sore muscles and body aches!
My favorite # is 3!
I'm a bit obsessive about cleanliness and organization. I can spend countless hours organizing things so that it looks the way I want.
I'm a good listener, but if I get excited about the topic then expect frequent interruptions.
I love to look at the stars and watch heat lightening.
I love to go karaoke!
I'm great with kids. I'm like a kid magnet. I am not sure why, but it is true!
I photo-bomb, but only in jest and with those I know! Okay, that is not true! i will photo-bomb a complete stranger!
I have an extremely broad taste in music!
