OC Roller Girls

OC Roller Girls

I was reading the (online) LA Times, and noticed a little blurb about the Derby Dolls of Los Angeles, and got to wondering if Orange County had its own league, or if we were too wussy to have one.

Turns out we are not wussy at all, and we do indeed have our very own OC Roller Girls, with team names like Huntington Heartbreakers, Back Bay Bombshells, and Wheel Housewives of Orange County.  I have apparently been extremely remiss in not knowing about their existence prior to this day.   They are all over, including Facebook, Twitter, and their very own blog.  They even have a calendar, with part of the proceeds going to charity.

They play at The Rinks on McFadden in Huntington Beach, and their first game this season is January 9, 2010.

Damn.  If I didn’t have a newborn, I might have thought about joining!

    Neeeet! I’ve never seen Roller Derby live. I know little Lucinda Michele from LA Metblogs just joined Derby Dolls. This could be fun!

    OC Metblogs meetup anyone?!?

    Thanks for the shout-out! We def are here in OC and I love every minute of it. :-)) We are a flat track league and the Derby Dolls (love them too) are a bank tracked. Both have great action. Check us out if you can.

    Thanks Dave!

    And thanks, Brik Wall, for pointing out the distinction between flat tracks and banked tracks.

    Don’t let having a newborn deter you! We have a few girls who have newborns, so it’s not impossible :D
