Hellbomber Marion Razorwound

Q:What prompted you to get into derby? 
I knew nothing about derby, but the concept of derby appeared intriguing to me.  Therefore, I decided to check out the wRECk (recreational) derby league.  The funny thing is that I had never seen a game and didn’t know the rules, I just jumped in and fell in love with it.  I skated with wRECk from January 2009 until March 2010, when I joined BRRG.

Q:You’ve been surprising a lot of fans this year, jamming so much, and being successful as a relatively new jammer.  How does that feel?
I feel accomplished.  I have worked really hard, and it is nice to see the results of my hard work, but I could not have done it without my team.

Q:What is the hardest part about jamming?
The hardest part of jamming is having to power through it even if you’re exhausted. Endurance is key, I have to work out a lot outside of derby practice.

Q:What is your day job?
Mean Simmon’s agent. (Mean’s fanpage link here.)

Razor and the Iconic Mean Simmons

Q:What’s it like to be the mom to the jr. derby ref rockstar, Mean Simmons?
Humbling. I will never be as cool as Mean Simmons.  Hold on, Mean needs a mineral water.

Q:If Razor had a theme song, what would it be?
You Can’t Roller Skate in a Buffalo Herd.

Q:How has derby changed you?
My confidence has increased exponentially.  Derby is an empowering sport, and I am lucky to be a part of it.

Q:What has been your most humbling moment in derby, so far?
Slipping out on turn two (a lot) in the first home game. Doh!

Q:Which opponent leaves you shaking in your skate boots?
Morbid Cherub.  Oh wait, she’s on my team. Whew.

Q:What is your favorite practice drill or workout, and why? 
I like hitting drills.  Nothing turns a bad day around like a hitting drill.

Q:Do you have a derby mentor?
I have several.  Here’s a hint… they are all Hellbombers.

Q:What has been your biggest challenge in derby so far?
Skating against other teams in the region with the HazMat Crew and the All-Stars.

Q:Tell our fans one fun fact about you. 
My skater name was derived from Karen Allen’s character Marion Ravenwood in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Q: Do you have a pre-bout routine or any bout day superstitions? 
I don’t have a routine or any bout day superstitions.  I am a mom so I don’t really have much of a routine ever.  I answer to my son, Mean Simmons and my daughter, Syd Vicious.
