Roller Rebel of the Month
Most teams have one of those players that they just don't ever want to play without. For The Roller Rebels, that player is MadDonna. Much like the star who inspired her derby name, MadDonna is able to juggle a hectic schedule of work and school, without having it interfere with her performance (on the track). If you have had the pleasure of playing against The Long Island Roller Rebels, chances are you will remember MadDonna. For those of you who have TRIED to pass her on the track, you will no doubt recall that major obstacle you encountered, better known as The MadDonna Booty Block. This intelligent, golden locked beauty displays a game face that is sure to make you lose the one thing she always maintains.....FOCUS! She has uniquely mastered a galloping-like technique, making her footwork that of a thoroughbred. Here MadDonna shares with us her pre-bout strategies and her obsession with bananas! Read on to see how she gets into the groove.
