I think all my subscribers know that I love Bam Bam Brawler. How can you not? The girl has levitation skills, slips through packs like she’s coated in butter and is possibly the nicest human being on the face of the planet.
With a style of jamming that looks like she’s always repeating to herself “Just break the pack, just break the pack”, she is a blast to watch on the track. She has an uncanny sense of the track that I have seen from skaters like Jukeboxx and Smarty Pants and can maneuver herself around opposing blockers like Fifi Nomenon and Brazilian Nut.
As a blocker, she is a powerful blocker and a priceless team mate. She is able to pull team mates into walls, or hold opposing skaters for long enough to allow her team mates to come and meet her. Her long legs allow her to take up half of the track by herself, and her balance is such that SHE CAN AND DOES. While she has been a natural choice for jammer, watching her block is just as fun. She pulls off all her spins and dodges just to recycle to the front of the pack where she’ll hit a jammer out and repeat.
Bam Bam is a true athlete and competitor. She is constantly learning and pushing herself to excellence. Bam is a fantastic but reluctant jammer who truly wants to also be a great blocker. Tough luck for her, though, as she's like a ninja on skates. It's an awesome experience as her teammate as her force of will pushes everyone to desire reaching that next level of derby. – Rosie the Retaliator, Rocktown Rollers
