LA Derby Dolls: Sirens vs. Tough Cookies - May 30, 2009


The L.A. Derby Dolls are Los Angeles' original women's quad-skate, banked track roller derby league.

Banked track roller derby is a full-contact sport played at breathtaking speeds. The slope and elevation of the track allows spectators to take in every second of the fast-paced, rough-and-tumble action!




Next Bout is tonight!

Yikes. I would like to be a ref. I cannot choose which temas name I like better so I think being a ref would be better.

Oh --- my --- god. When I was a kid, other girls dreamed of being a ballerina or some such goody-goody nonsense. Not me, I wanted to be a roller derby girl. This post rocks! I wish I could be there!

There are posters all around NYC rightnow to see roller drby...I have to admit I am so curious. I saw a Rock of Love once (I am a loser for watching it) and the girls had to do it and it was hysterical.
