Congrats to Mercyful Kate and Suki Hana who were drafted from Fresh Meat onto GnR on Tuesday night.
GnR couldn't resist picking up a skater with a rocking derby name like Mercyful Kate. Originally a Rainy City Roller Doll along with Napalm Beth, she's a regular with the Axles of Annihilation and a former High Roller who decided that sparkly green and purple didn't go well with her red hair. Making an unorthodox choice in the roller derby world, she decided to change her uniform rather than her hair. Don't you think she'll be stunning in black? (And pink? And leopard print? And tiger? And rainbows? And all?)
Suki Hana is rumored to have played for a league far, far away, so we'll have to check into that and see what
cheap tricks new tactics she's brought along with her.
I don't know Suki yet, and her pic was shamelessly fished out from the modern inter-webs (discuss: "google" vs. "creepy"), so if you do know her, tell us more in the comments.
Former GnR captain Viva Vendetta and Fresh Meat skater Penny Dreadful were picked up by the High Rollers at Tuesday's draft. The Breakneck Betties drafted Frisky Sour, and the Heartless Heathers added Hard Candy and Knotty to their roster.
Be sure to congratulate the former Fresh Meat and free agents who've found new homes. A good place to do that would be at Saturday's Wheels of Justice bout with the Muñecas Muertas of Duke City (for which very, very few tickets are remaining).
