It is with great sadness that we must report the departure of our dear Double Easy for the Rockied realm of Colorado.
As I met Easy later in her tenure, I was shocked to learn that she could barely stand on skates when she first joined SVRG. Her story is the one of sports mythologies, though: she skated her ass off and practiced and practiced and practiced and taught herself some sweet moves. After all that hard work she developed into both a solid blocker and a reliable jammer based on her speed, endurance, agile feet, and quick thinking in the pack. Her mad skills made her a very valuable asset to SVRG.
It’s rare to come across someone with such unbridled enthusiasm for the sport, and her positive attitude and always-ready-for-more mentality helps buoy her teammates’ spirits and keep us looking forward to every challenge. She is always the first to jump at the opportunity for an extra practice and can recite WFTDA rules as easily as her address. She has also been an awesome Web Mistress for the team website, working long hours to make changes and help us transition to our new forums system. Easy also has other talents we will miss. As a foodie, you can always count on her to bring something delicious to every team potluck event and meeting. And, as a fast food/gas station snack connoisseur, there’s no better companion for a road trip to an away game.
SVRG wants to wish the best of luck to Double Easy in Colorado. Let it be known that whatever roller derby team gets her is lucky to have such a fantastic skater and friend joining the team. We will miss you!
