Cole Hearted #026; Nashville Rollergirls
Song that pumps me up: Kevin Gates anything!!
Favorite town to play derby in: My dream is to play in a huge arena with all the seats filled… Like the one I sent, in Australia. But so far my fave is Vancouver B.C., Tacoma/Seattle and Naptowns crowds!! (I’ve been everywhere man)
First derby crush: Julie Brandt-Glass at the time I came in… And still is! I have so many now!(Smarty, Val Kapone, DBC…) All these women are strong, independent and want more and the most from life!!
My favorite MRDA skater is Scott Slamilton Whitkop- I mean it’s Scott he’s a beast, a gentleman and a true athlete!!
My travel roommates are peeps who love their sleep and coffee but know how to enjoy the whole experience!
My favorite post-bout meal is subway and or a clean veggie-fruit smoothie add PeanutButter!! Pick one lol.
Hurtz Donut #0; Demolition City Derby Girls
1) What song pumps you up? My Sharona (by The Knack) – not sure why just makes me to skate fast.
2) What is your favorite city to play derby in? Evansville! Nothing can beat playing for your home crowd.
3) Who was your first WFTDA derby crush?/Which WFTDA skater inspires you to work harder? When I first started I didn’t know about all the big city team skaters so it was actually a teammate of mine – The Virgin Cherry. She was fast, and powerful and I wanted to be just like her. Who currently inspires me to work harder are my teammates. My blockers always push me to get stronger and my fellow jammers inspire me to learn and grow in my abilities.
4) Which MRDA skater and why? Magnum P.I.M.P. – being close to St. Louis we invited them over to exhibit men’s derby back in 2010 and he was just amazing to watch then (as men’s derby was so new and had a different flavor than women’s derby) and is still awesome to see skate today.
5) When you travel with the team, who are your roommates? Usually my sister, Painbow Bright, and her derby wife Terra Sunder.
6) What is your preferred post-bout meal? Usually pasta of some nature or something I can dip in ranch.
