Beaster Bunny, No. 88
What is your derby name, # & tagline?
Beaster Bunny, #88
This ain't no chocolate treat… she’ll knock you on your seat!
How did you come up with your number?
88 looks like BB (for Beaster Bunny… duh).
How did you come up with your derby name?
If I told you, I’d have to kill you.
How and when did you get involved with roller derby?
I got interested when I saw an article in a weekly free newspaper in Chicago in 2009. Varla Vendetta was on the cover! I was in grad school and needed to learn how to skate first, so after about a year I tried out for the Windy City Rollers and made it onto the farm team, the Haymarket Rioters. A few months later I was drafted to the Manic Attackers. And now I’m a Rebel!!
Any serious injuries?
Do you have a rival on the track?
Grave Danger! And Mayor Francis Slayer! I hate going up against them when I’m jamming, but I intend to learn a lot from them in the coming travel season.
What is your favorite position to play?
I love it all… I was really into blocking for a while, but RSA injuries forced me to start jamming. Now I like a happy mix of both.
What is the worst penalty you ever committed?
Nothing badass (yet).
Do you have any pre-bout rituals?
Carrots. And mangoes.
What kind of skates & wheels do you roll on?
I’m rocking some Riedell 965s with Revenge plates and straight up Atom G-Rods. They’re monster wheels, but I love them.
