The Los Angeles Derby Dolls were at Comikaze promoting their league. I was lucky enough to check out an intense game a few weeks ago (Tough Cookies versus Sirens), so I was excited to chat with them for a few minutes and find out more about the sport and players.
STEFCON 1 gave us the low down on the history of its founders, the fresh meat program, public classes, injuries (broken collar bones, ankles, tail bone injures, wrists), other roller derby associations, the league’s involvement in “Whip It”, the growth of bank track leagues, hanging out with other teams after the game, and getting hit on by guys and girls.
If you’re in the Los Angeles area, I definitely recommend checking out the Derby Dolls:
Sorry about the video glitches. My camera is on it’s way to Canon for repair 🙁
