I love skating against River City. (I love it more when skaters like Forty Ounce Bounce are skating with me, not against me.) Now, Bounce is just one of a pack from River City girls who are #1: tall #2: strong #3: lithe #4: hilarious. On the track or off, I want to be friends with Forty Ounce Bounce.
On the track she is strong and effortless. She always looks like she’s enjoying herself and her movement from one side of the track to the other is easy, quick and usually takes an opponent out while she’s moving. Her booty can keep several skaters at the back of the pack at one time, and then when she’s ready to rejoin the front she simply jumps the apex to rejoin her team. You know. Like you do.
I first played Bounce in 2010, and I found out recently that we started in derby around the same time. I remember thinking that first game, “Here is someone I want pair up against. Here who hits hard and can move mountains. Here is someone I need to watch out for.” When Bounce jams… well, really.. if she jams I hope you have really strong walls because she knows how to move her body and those long legs of hers are near impossible to trip up.
I will probably never forget the first time I got “Bounced”. The Charm City B-team drove down to Richmond for an early morning Sunday scrimmage. I don’t remember much about the jam, but I know I was on turn 4, with my head turned the wrong way…Forty Ounce Bounce came in for the kill and the next thing I knew, I went flying. It was one of the best hits I’ve ever received. – Xena Paradox
