All right, this is another bout I can't tell you much about. Now do you see why I'm going to need some help with non-BAD content?
I was really looking forward to going to this. I love the Santa Cruz girls. I love the L.A. team. I love season openers. But it was not to be as I have a different bout to attend this night.
I haven't seen the Sirens play in a long time. Hell, I haven't made it down to L.A. for a dolls game in over a year. I don't know who's playing. But I do know who is not playing: Lacey from "Rock of Love," Kath and/or Kim from "Kath and Kim," or those two dudes from "Psych." Though they have all filmed segments with the Derby Dolls in the past year and I've seen all of this on TV.
So I just looked at the Sirens website. V. Lee and Mila Minute are on this team? Oh snap! I know they're good jammers.
But I know Santa Cruz is good too. I recently skated on a Red Red Holiday team with Raven Von Kaos. And we totally won. So keep that in mind, L.A. My friend Lulu Lockjaw is a badass jammer who wears tiny, tiny shorts. Sometimes shiny shorts. And I'm pleased to see now that they have Hell Louise, an old school transfer from the Sac City Rollers.
All in all, I can't make any predictions. The Sirens are primarily a banked track league from my understanding. I don't know how much experience they have against flat-track teams. Santa Cruz has been racking up exciting wins in their last season. And those SC girls really....man...ok. They do all kinds of park skating. And outside scrimmages. And I think they're kind of more hard core than I am.
Again, if anyone from L.A. or Santa Cruz wants to chime in, please do. Unfortunately their wins and losses aren't recorded on FlatTrackStats.
I am super bummed that I am missing this game. I better get some dang text message score updates frequently! No offense, L.A.D.D. but GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SANTA CRUZ!
