August 2010 - Clobberin' Mame

sw-clobberin-mame2What’s the significance of your derby name and number?
[CM] – My name is the wrestling nickname The Professor Jake Stratton gave me when we started dating over 8 years ago. It was easily adoptable to the derby world. My number is my favorite Dodge engine, the 440 Big Block, from my dream car, the ’68 Dodge Dart. I know it’s such a long shot. A girls gotta have dreams.

Do you have any bout-day rituals, habits, or superstitions? If so, what are they?
[CM] – After 6 seasons it seems it doesn’t really matter much but I do like to get a big breakfast in the morning after sleeping in and having coffee in my pjs with The Professor.

What was the last thing you ate?
[CM] – Well the last thing I consumed was a tall cup of Cedar’s chai tea…yummm!

What is your favorite thing about Roller Derby?
[CM] – Everything! The hard work, the community, the pain, the laughter, the business, the family and the game! The whole thing pretty much rules.

What is your favorite off-skates workout?
[CM] – Riding my bike.

At noon, a train leaves Seattle for Portland while another train leaves Portland for Seattle. It takes one train 4 hours and the other 7 hours to make the trip. Both maintain constant speeds and travel along parallel tracks. If you were on one of those trains, what kind of refreshing beverage would you be drinking in the dining car?
[CM] – Rangpur Gin and tonic with many many limes.
