About Sophia:

What is your best roller derby memory?

Really, after eight years there is no distinction between derby memory and memory. These people are my people.

What is your most embarrassing roller derby memory?

Picture it...Birmingham, 2017. I'm jamming, coming around a curve with the opposing jammer close behind. My blocker, Slay, is hanging back from the pack, ready to take out the other jammer once I pass. The track is open, giving me a clear route to enter at the back of the pack...and I run smack into Slay and take us both out. It was like the episode of Bob's Burger's where Tina manages to hit the only car in a giant parking lot.

What are some of your other hobbies?

Bingo, board games, podcasts, fighting the patriarchy, trying every flavor at Big Spoon, brunch, hanging out with my cat, resisting fascism, cross stitch & embroidery, failing at gardening, naps

Ms. Frizzle
