Just For Fun: Why did some members of TCDG choose their number?

Skaters in roller derby get to pick their own number (and of course, their name). Why did some members of TCDG choose the number that they did? Here are some responses:

“315 was my area code growing up. I grew up out in the country, so the joke from the 585 area was that we were a bunch of ‘315ers’ (it was synonymous with rednecks, hicks, etc). Even radio shows played into the joke. It isn’t a good reason to pick a number really, but it dawned on me one morning while working out. I had been thinking hard about numbers for a while so I just went with it.” — Crashes to Ashes

“925 is because a Girl Friday is a ‘go-to girl’ who is there when you need her, has whatever you need on hand, and is talented in many areas; also slang used for 1950’s office gals” and office hours are nine to five.” — Girl Friday

“I played softball growing up and my number would be my age. 10 just stuck and I have been that for every sport I have played since I was 10!” — Scooby Smaxx

Mine is boring.. 85 is the year I was born. I wanted 19 (the day I was born) but Booty already had it. I thought about being 419 but heard about how hard it was to wash numbers off so I decided to stick with 2 digits.” — Sloan Cold

The day I was born! And I had a teacher that called me number 19 in 5th grade. I got a 91% on a test and she was telling me I got a 19…and then continued to call me that for whatever reason.” — Lil’ Booty Two Shoes
