Today here at Big Derby Girls Don’t Cry, we’re celebrating the 100th blog entry and the 8th week of the Campaign for Real Booty, so it is my utmost pleasure to present someone from the East Coast, someone from my hometown, someone from my league – ladies and gentleman, I give you Pixie Rocket from the Charm City Roller Girls!!!

Pixie describes herself as “a proud zaftig* – a nice Jewish girl.” And as a blocker and sometimes jammer for the Charm City All Stars or her home team, the Night Terrors, Pixie started honing what would become her derby skills at a young age, “I grew up on roller and ice skates, and was always up for a race against anyone, especially boys.”

“I knew derby was for me when I learned the booty block... it was seriously a dream come true,” she says. “Since training for derby, I definitely have gotten more in shape, and I've lost a little bit of weight and gained a lot of muscle. I'm never gonna be a waif girl, nor do I want to be. I'm pretty happy with my curves, most of the time.”

Pixie goes on to say, “Not to sound totally egotistical, but I have always loved my ass. Derby has made me like my thighs a lot more; I did cover them up pre-derby 'cause I thought they were too big. In general, I'm more confident about my whole body, and I try not to pick it apart into little pieces or criticize the ‘imperfections’ too much. The fashion industry does that enough, and Pixie Rocket ain't buying it!” Damn, straight, girl! Woot!

“I love being surrounded by strong women at practice, and the guys who support us. It's empowering to feel comfortable enough to play around with my sexuality when I want to, rock out the booty shorts, or sk8 in my sports bra when it gets too hot at endurance practices,” she says. “The dirty old man in me also gets distracted by all the other hot booties at practice sometimes too.” (We all know who she’s talking about here, people…)

(Pixie 3rd from the left, with Female Trouble, CCRG's 2007 B-Team - also notice the sweet, sweet ass of Mibbs Breakin' Ribs, third from the right)

Pixie and the Night Terrors will be skating in the CCRG Home Season opener at DuBurn’s Arena on May 3 against the Junkyard Dolls. You can also catch me there playing with Speed Regime against the Mobtown Mods.

I've heard from quite a few non-derby readers how much they love the Campaign for Real Booty, so I'd like to open the Campaign up to non-derby playing gals as well. Send me your booty pix this coming week, and week 9 of the Campaign for Real Booty will be a collage of non-derby asses. Click on the link to the right to e-mail me your shots! XXOO, Cindy Lop-her

A little late to the party here, but I played against those asses at the ECE last year. It was a fun little game.

What a great blog you have here, it makes me really happy to see such positivity and support for the bootylicious skaters. I retired at the end of last season, but I'll be manning the ECE this month -- hope you're coming up so I can buy you a beer for this. :)

Great idea, Slay (on the acupuncture and the beer ;). I will be up on Sunday!!!
