Anya Knees #8^3

September 24, 2013

Name and number?

Anya Knees, 8 to the 3rd power (btw, no one believes me, but my name refers to kneeling during Confession…something I have done a lot, unfortunately)

Hometown?

Kissimmee, Florida

Joined derby?

Early 2010

How did you get interested in derby enough to want to Ref or NSO?

I went in search of a strong, pro-female atmosphere, and found derby. At first, I wanted to skate, then found that I loved reffing.

Worst bad habit?

I run on Latin time — rarely, if ever, early for anything.

Most girlie thing about you?

I won’t leave the house without earrings on; my ears were pierced when I was 3 weeks old.

Least girlie thing about you?

I cuss way too much.

Favorite drink?

That’s like trying to choose a favorite child (!)

Favorite place to get said drink?

Any bar with sports on — MLB, NFL, and college football have my attention right now.

What song gets you pumped for a game?

Jann Arden’s “Where No One Knows Me”

What do you do when you’re not on the track?

I hang out with Mr. Knees (he is pretty awesome), harass my kid (he’s pretty cool, too) and I work for Orange County.
