LADD Championship Bout

As alluded to in the previous post last Saturday was LADD Roller Derby night. The championship bout to be exact. We had a large crew meeting up at the Dolls new home, The Doll Factory. They're no longer at the top of the mall in Japan Town. Now they're playing in Historic Filipinotown. Not too bad a place to get to. The cab ride was just about the same from the Chinese Jet Pilot's pad in Pasadena to the Dolls new home as to their old one. CJP, myself, Mrs. LK and Mr. Kimono all met in Pasadena and cabbed it to the game. We met Fancypants and his cousin there. Will&Grace and his new girlfriend also met us there.

There was the fairly standard line to get in when we got there. It didn't take too long to get in. It was freakin' cold though. I was certainly glad I wore a long sleeve shirt under my Fight Crew jersey. Saw Busta while we were waiting in line. He suggested we head over to the Drunk Scouts section in the VIP bleachers, but we've got a love for the general admission section on turn two so we set up camp there holding spots for everyone. Just after we finished check-in though I was met by Tara Armov. She came bearing gifts from the Crew. See the picture below.

That's right folks. More shwag. That's a full set of the Fight Crew trading cards. W00t! There was also a new full size team sticker and though it's almost not visible at the top a Fight Crew skull cap. Yeah baby! Now I'd root for this team regardless, but man you just can't beat this. Thank you team Fight Crew! I'd summarize the game, but Busta does a way better job than I do. Quick summary though. It was a tight game pretty much from the get go and it went all the way down to the last jam. Unfortunately the Fight Crew was beaten in the last jam with a four point jam. Taking the score from 29-31 in favor of the Crew to 33-31 in favor of the Sirens. Congratulations to the Sirens as they earned every point and the Championship trophy.

Can't wait for the season to kick off in 2008. Here's one final pic with me sporting my new cap.

ps I wasn't beneath picking trading cards up off the floor or stealing other peoples. I have doubles of Leia Mout, Apocalyptica and Trixie Biscuit. I've got triples of Tawdry Tempest. One of those was saved after someone threw it down and stomped on it. Grrr.

The extra Leia Mout was from Mrs. LK

That mighta been me who stomped on it. But in truth, I loves me the Tempest. I was just playing for the crowd.

I guess the Cookies have to step it up for our superfans and give them some shwag too. That's a cool thing.

The Drunk Scouts were actually in the stand-up stands on the straight after turn 2 ;)

Lucy reminds me about something I read on the Roller Derby Is Sport yahoo group (dominated by flat track fans): the idea of a "superfan pageant" held in the middle of the track, where the crowd picks the winner during halftime.

You'd win fer shure ;)

At least until someone showed up in their underwear with their whole body painted up like their team's uniform...

If I was in shape, well not my currently round shape, I'd be for the body paint no problem. As it is I'm glad I can cover up with the jersey.
