I got to meet Sylvie Thompson, AKA Royal Crush, at a Assassination City roller derby bout recently. She's one of the Green Country roller girls from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Everyone knows I love tall athletic girls, so I had to get her up on the blog. After After my gmail botched an attempt at the standard Q&A, I threw her a curve with my new random topic format.
