We woke up bright and early to venture onto the rink at Astro Skate of Tarpon Springs this past Monday, November 20th.
Several of our newer “greenhorn” skaters hit the track with with WFLA News Channel 8’s Anthony “Double A” Allred as he interviewed our Secretary, Lindsay Crenshaw AKA “Coral Grief” about the ins-and-outs of roller derby. Our segments ranged from 6:30am-9am where we shared several basic skating drills and a little behind-the-scenes of what it takes to run a successful roller derby league.
Mr. Allred donned the traditional roller derby gear, including a helmet, safety pads and his own special extra: a rolling walker to help support him as he skated around the track with us.
We are so glad to have Mr. Allred as an honorary Pirate Bay Roller Derby member and now knight him as “Max Defender AA, #8!”
We had a great time having Mr. Allred skate (and fall) with us, and greatly appreciate the feature from WFLA News Channel 8.
