Don’t let this blog fool you; it was no easy feat for the Starlettes' blockers. IEDD came out with ready to kill attitudes and they did just about everything possible to put the Starlettes on the ground. The size difference alone should have put some fear into this San Diego team. The Inland Empire Divas NEVER LET UP! It was a definite battle for 60 minutes as the “derby marks”, better known as bruises, are only now fading away. San Diego Roller Derby’s 4’11” Supersize’N and IEDD’s 6’2” Fishnet Funeral met each other several times on the track but the tenacity of Supersize’N is bigger than life. As a fan in the audience stated, "I have to say one of my new favorite skaters is Supersize'N... how can you not love that girl, seriously... the whole IEDD bout we kept discussing if there is any legal way to even make contact with her, ha! How do you hit her without hitting above the shoulders or illegally using your legs? It's awesome! And she's tenacious as hell, instant love affair with the fans." It became a family affair when San Diego Roller Derby's Mrs. Brigg’em Down got the pleasure of skating against her big sister Fishnet Funeral. What a treat it was to see those two take out their sister rivalries on each other.
After the game, a fan told us, “I was impressed most with the hitting, you ladies are physical and it is appreciated, you have a good derby mindset, I see a bright future for the SDRD”. With the final score 160-70, the Starlettes came out on top. San Diego Roller Derby would like to thank all you wonderful fans for showing continuing support. The February game was supporting St. Augustine High School in their efforts to raise money for Hogar Infantil La Gloria and is proud to announce that with your help they raised $800 and received a truck load of supplies for the orphanage. Lady Diesel made a trip to the orphanage to deliver supplies and play with the kids on a recent Saturday. She said, “Hogar Infantil is an amazing environment for these children. The staff was wonderful, very structured and the children were amazing. It was a blessing to be able to go play with the kids for the day.” The next SDRD game takes place on April 10, 2010 against the Bakersfield Diamond Divas, 5:30PM at Skateworld.
