So not last weekend, but the one before we headed out to NoHo to check out some roller derby. We managed to pick a weekend where a hole had formed in the crust of the earth and lava and fire were pouring forth creating hell on earth. So hot in fact that I broke down and bought this overpriced, oversized fedora. Not that I wasn't happy to have it at the time mind you. Still, I don't know when or if I'll wear it again.
The bout we showed for was the first of the season. Here's the schedule for the rest of the season. Of course we'll be out of town for the first banked track, but oh well. I'll give up roller derby for Maui any day.
There are four teams in the LA Derby Dolls league. It certainly doesn't seem to be a high dollar franchise at this point, but that doesn't seem to matter because even with the heat the ladies went out there and seemed to have some fun.
There's more info and stuff on their site. The quiz below being some of that stuff. Take the quiz and find out which team is yours.
Which LA Derby Doll team fits you best?
Your quick thinking and skill in extreme circumstances would make you a perfect addition to the unfriendly skies ruled by our FIGHT CREW. Not since Hollywood's blacklist has there been such a Red Scare looming over Los Angeles. Sneak tactics, precision operations, and well-timed blindsiding penalties are the order of the day for your new band of soaring aces. Your loyalty will be ingrained, because remember: while some Derby Dolls have chosen their alter-egos, others have earned their names. Your Captain is Tara Armov, so note the latter.
