#18: The L.A. Derby Dolls

Seeing the famed L.A. Derby Dolls in action was an amazing experience. The crowd was kooky and eclectic, the athletes were showmen (er... show-women), and the atmosphere was downright electric.

I got there about 20 minutes before the game started and the stands were already packed. After briefly browsing the shop tents and food stands, I was lucky enough to find a spot in the very back that actually still had a decent view. I would definitely recommend getting there early to score a good place, especially if you're on the shorter side like I am. If you are willing to shell out more cash, you can go the VIP route and have reserved seats in the bleachers.

Ok, so the LA team got creamed by the San Diego team. Thus, for most of the game, the crowd wasn't going especially crazy. However, when the LA team did score, the crowd went nuts. I need to go to another game, but one in which the teams are more evenly matched.

If you go, remember to buy your tickets in advance because it can sell out!
