Judy and Richard Congrove
How did you come up with your derby name and number?
I have to give my husband all the credit on this one. We were just going through girls names playing with them to see what we could come up with, and this was his brain child. It's fun, doesnt come off to serious and I felt right off like it was a name I could grow with and be comfortable using.
Why did you join TTRB?
I knew I wanted to try out for a league one day, and when I started looking at my Seattle options there was no hesitation. Skating on a banked track, along with being able to be in on the ground floor of something I know is going to be amazing, left no question in my mind where I wanted to be.
What derby related injuries, if any, have you had?
I broke my ankle on July 12th 2010 and had to have a 6 inch metal plate and 7 screws in to fix me back up. Derby hurts.
What do you do with your time, other than derby?
I play way way way too many video games. I also love reading, sewing and knitting.
What do you like most about Roller Derby?
Can I say everything? I love the all of the people involved, I LOVE hitting and blocking. I enjoy seeing my own growth and improvement.
If you could give any advice to a new or interested skater, what would it be?
Practice, practice, practice. To be amazing at anything, whether it be painting or playing the violin, you have to put massive time and energy into to, derby is no different. And be fearless. Don't let your own doubts hinder you.
What is your biggest fear?
Heights. You could honestly offer to pay me a million dollars to sky dive and I would turn you down.
What are your likes?
Derby obviously, British television, glass blowing
What are your dislikes?
Snotty people that feel superior or entitled.
What is your favorite movie?
I don't have a favorite movie exactly, I have a small list of movies that I could watch over and over and never get tired of. Clue, Goonies, Princess Bride, Total Recall, 10 Things I Hate About You, and Some Kind of Wonderful, to name a few.
