Derby Dolls vs The Sirens

The Chinese Jet Pilot and I headed back downtown Saturday night to Japantown and the Little Tokyo Mall for some more L.A. Derby Dolls action. Woohoo!! Another great night. Traffic was hell getting to Pasadena to meet up with everyone, but the cab ride back downtown was a breeze. We got the same cab driver as last time. The cab ride home was another story. Piece of shit cabby playing stupid on how to get to the 110. Bastard added $15 onto the ride. Still better than driving in, but damn. Little bastard. Funny thing is the ride has consistently been like $30 or so and we've consistently tipped like $10. If the little fucker had just taken us straight home with no detours he'd have made an extra $10 off the books. As it was he got nothing.

Anyway, I'm not sure exactly when we got there, but luckily Fancy Pants and Bro-In-Law got there early and snagged a spot by the track. Same corner as last time. I snapped a quick phone pic of some of the Fight Crew girls this time, but I still didn't bring a good camera. I guess I'm a little shy about bringing it downtown, but really the last two times have been great so next time for sure. Risky Business came with us this time too. CJP and GM actually were the first ones to go to a bout way back at the beginning of the summer and extolled the virtues of Roller Derby to the rest of us. Luckily they were convincing.

Well I seem to have picked a good team to root for. The Fight Crew have kicked some ass at the last two bouts I've seen. Last month there were a couple of really nasty spills with Iron Mayven going into the rail in a nasty way and Jihad dislocating her shoulder. Both were there Saturday, but the Mayven's team wasn't skating and Jihad was still recovering for the title match in November.

They have all kinds of merch on sale at the events. Their own stuff as well as other vendors who I guess help sponsor the league. The Dolls also sell raffle tickets for prize bags. Well the CJP has been buying tickets from the very beginning, but has never come home with anything. Well he finally has. He got a gift bag with all the stuff seen below, with the exception of the flask. He got that at the last bout for buying a VIP ticket. And yes that is a skate board deck that he won. The crazy fool is actually going to outfit the damn thing and then attempt to ride it. Oi!

He gave me some of his stickers, but I ended up buying all my other stuff rather winning it. Heh.

I put the new license plate bracket on today. Forgot to take a picture though. Oh well. Picture a dirty ass dark grey Camry with the above license plate. Oh and a I heart Derby Girls bumper sticker in the front window.
