They won!  They won by 18 points!  The bout was the most fun I’ve had in a really long time.

LBD was up for most of the game, and in the last four minutes, the opposing team came up from behind and almost tied with LBD.  But Jen Van Jam, the Dolls’ main Jammer, brought the win home.

  1. So glad you had fun! That was definitely a nail-biter at the end.

  2. Was this your first derby bout? I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

    I have it on good authority to believe there’s derby in your blood, woman!
