Derby Name:  Mr. Wizard

Derby Name meaning or story & why/when you joined FMDG:  When I first started with the league back in about August or September of 2007 and we were getting ready to hold our first ever bout, Hexibition Night 10/14/07, the plan was to use a old bar A frame chalkboard sign for displaying the scores. This was back when we use to use shower caps for helmet covers at scrimmage. I found a nice little scoreboard program an we rented a screen and projector. After a few game and adding the intro video and dealing with other technical issues ( stringing a few hundred feet of audio and video cables across the ceiling ever bout) The girls decided I needed a derby name. I think it was Flyin Da Brie old 420 came up with the name Mr. Wizard cause I made the magic happen.
