Another grand night at the Doll House
in Little Tokyo. Sirens versus the Tough Cookies. The cookies took an early lead in the first quarter, but the Sirens soon caught up and the two teams traded the lead for the rest of the night. Good, clean fun. Mostly.
Every time we go we buy raffle tickets for whatever the crap is that they're giving away. Now it's not really crap. They usually give away skate board decks, t-shirts, stickers. Pretty much general shwag. Not this past match, but the one before they actually gave away an electric guitar. So they do have some decent prizes, but really we're just buying to support the Dolls. Same reason we buy VIP tickets and then never sit in the bleachers. So anyway the CJP has a history of winning the damn prizes. Prior to last night he won a skateboard deck one night and shwag bag with a t-shirt and stickers and what not in it. You can see what's coming next right? Well he won another skateboard deck last night. Just so you all know he doesn't skate. Well. Never did.
So now he's got two decks. I think I posted a picture of our stuff in an earlier post. So while I was away using the facilities he wanders off to scrounge up a pen so he can get the deck signed by some of the girls. Pretty cool. He comes back with it signed by four of the Dolls. Needless to same I'm suitably impressed and pretty darn stoked for him. (Yes I just used the word stoked.)
And then he gives the deck to me.
Signed by none other than the captain of my team, Fight Crew
, Tara Armov, my teams main enforcer Broadzilla and an all around hell raiser Tawdry Tempest. He also got the Tough Cookies
Suzy Snakeyes to sign it as well. How fucking cool is that? Pretty damn cool let me tell you. Tara even got beer juice all over it since she was emptying the trash cans at the time. (Yes folks the Dolls aren't above cleaning their own house when visitors are over.) So check out the pics below of the aforementioned deck with autographs.

Oh and I got suckered into buying a CD from one of the bands that played, Los Desnudos
. They did punk cover tunes, but the album is not punk. Not bad though.
