#42 Vyles

Number of year playing derby:

How did you get into derby?
Divine intervention.

Do you have any other hobbies?
I knit harder than I hit, I’m very good at NYT Crossword Puzzles, I like a bunch of local punk bands pretty okay, and my face is always in a book when it’s not being smeared across the track.

Who inspires you?
Guy Fieri, Squirmles- The Magical Pets™, and watching Bermurder Triangle lift weights while “All Star” by Smash Mouth plays in my head.

What is your sports background?
Varsity tennis and lacrosse.

How/why did you pick your derby name?
It’s short for AnglaVyle, which is a play on the word Anglophile. Any of my friends will tell you that I am the world’s #1 Oasis fan.

Do you have any pre or post bout rituals?
Drinking a TON of nut milk before a bout is crucial. After a game, I like to unwind with an Old Crow and a plateful of Polish food from Pierogi Mountain.

Do you have a favorite or signature move?
Going ham to the wall, baybay.

How has derby impacted your life?
I wear sparkly pants in public pretty frequently now.

Any other fun facts about yourself?
I studied Russian, I bit my own tongue off when I was three, and I own 12 copies of Neil Young’s “Trans” LP.
