"Best $2k I Ever Spent!" Girl-On-Girl Action At L.A. Derby Dolls

"Lisa, if the Bible has taught us nothing else—and it hasn't—it's that girls should stick to girls' sports, such as hot oil wrestling and foxy boxing and such and such." -Homer Simpson

Based on his Biblical principles, I wonder if Homer Simpson would approve* of the Derby Dolls and L.A.'s burgeoning roller derby scene. On the one hand, Derby Dolls is a women-only league. On the other hand, despite an abundance of fishnets and short shorts, there's nothing artificially "foxy" about it: if you skate into that ring, you'd better keep your head up, because these chicks are not messing around.

*I realize that there is a possibility that there is some late-season "Simpsons" episode where Marge joins a roller derby. If it didn't happen in the first 14 seasons, it didn't happen.
