Get to know Pinky Teasadero...
What is the meaning behind your skater name?
After Pinky Tuscadero from Happy Days.
What was your athletic background prior to playing roller derby?
I have been an artistic roller skater since age 3. I competed in figures and dance from a young age to 16.
Is there a song that gets you pumped up before a bout?
A few, but they are not always the same for each bout. I have a pretty awesome playlist and I shuffle through it.
What aspect of derby do you enjoy the most?
Being competitive on skates and having fun.
How did you get started in your roller derby career?
My mom is a brain aneurysm survivor. After her 2nd brain surgery, we decided as a family to help feed homeless on Thanksgiving to celebrate her surviving. My brother started talking about tattoos with someone there. She happened to play roller derby. I went to practice the next week. It was 2 weeks before tryouts so I couldn't join as a skater. I decided I had to be involved and fell into the role of Non-Skating Official until the next fresh meat started. I have loved roller derby ever since and can't imagine life without it.
