Later that evening, I was even allowed to make a pizza! I donned a Papa John’s cap, thoroughly washed my hands, and got to work making a “large works with extra cheese.” I had some expert guidance from Captain Howdy #.333, a fellow skater and actual Papa John’s employee. I sincerely hope that whoever ended up with that pizza tasted the derby love that went into making it!
While I was inside slinging pizza, we had some celebrity action going on out in front of the store. Our very own Goldy Blocks #3brs, who happened to be the featured skater on the bout poster that month, was signing autographs on the flyer-sized handouts (due to the prompting of her eldest daughter, Trauma Queen, of the junior derby league Minor Threat). Who says Roller Derby isn’t glamorous?!? Over at the Solano location, we had Spicy She-Rachacha #K90 and her son dancing and singing, “Come buy some pizza,” at the intersection to entice potential customers.
As a non-profit organization, we rely solely on volunteer work and fundraising, and would like to give a big shout-out and thank you to the people of Las Cruces for always supporting us. And also to all the employees at Papa John’s who put up with being overrun with Derby girls: thank you, thank you, and thank you!!
