My Homegirls and sista Vals Cagey Bea and Ophelia Melons are Enforcers with the L.A. Derby Dolls. If you haven't been formally introduced to the Derby Dolls, check these ladies out!
From the Derby Dolls web site:
Skates. Skirts. Scars. The L.A. Derby Dolls are Los Angeles' original women's quad-skate roller derby league. Yes, action fans, you heard it right -- roller derby!
Founded in October 2003 by Rebecca Ninburg (a.k.a. Demolicious) and Wendy Templeton (a.k.a. Thora Zeen), the L.A. Derby Dolls are a league of more than 60 women divided into four teams who skate on a banked track.
We've taken all the thrills of the old game and brought it up to date with a fresh and feisty new face. We're half-clad, all bad!!!
Help the Dolls out: they will be holding a Derby Doll Yard Sale to help raise money to buy gear and pay for camp scholarships for the lil' Dolls.
If you want to see them in action, their next bout will be Saturday, May 31. The Sirens go up against the Tough Cookies ("Where Beatings Earn You Badges"). Get your tickets quick-like, 'cause the house gets sold out every bout.
