See also

The Tilted Thunder Rail Birds have landed their 2nd skater on the 2013 Washington all-star team as Thumper Skull has been voted on by the derby community. Here is what some of the voters had to say about Thumper...

"Thumper has the best foot control of anyone on the league. She can swoop in and control you with any part of her body and not even be phased or thrown off balance. When she jams she can juke like nobody's business!" - Beast Lightning

"She's been skating for years, and it shows. She is entertaining to watch, and she loves to rile up the fans!" - Mae Lay

"Thumper Skull is queen of the mountain at TTRB. If she is blocking, you ain’t getting past her. If she is jamming, you ain’t stopping her. Thumper embodies all the reasons I became a fan of roller derby: thunderous hits, agile skating, and brash showmanship." - Murray Grande

"She’s one of the best banked track skaters that I’ve seen. She forces me to push myself hard when skating with and against her on the banked track. She’s really helpful on the bench. When you ask her something, she doesn’t tell you just a simple answer, she really explains things. She, also, has really loud burps. Really long and loud."Afro Jamuari

"Thumper is an amazing interleague ambassador, too. She totally KILLED IT skating with the top banked track team LA Riettes last year, in the annual March Radness bout. I swear she got more track time than some of LA's veteran All-Stars, and her teamwork and understanding of strategy really shone through. She put some serious points on the board too. I was so proud of her I coulda cried." - Florence the Machine


If you have any comments of your own you would like to add about Thumper, feel free to send them to me at and I'll post them on here as soon as I can.
