A couple of weeks ago I traveled to Louisiana to join friends for the annual San Fermin in Nueva Orleans festival, better known as the The Running of the Bulls… New Orleans style.

We dressed in white, tied red sashes around our waists, and wound our way through town (for charity and fun, of course).  While en route, we kept an eye out for the “bulls” — members of Big Easy Rolllergirls and other roller derby leagues across the country.  These women dress in wild costumes (featuring horned helmets) and carry plastic bats to “tap” you should you get too close.

We had a grand time!  I thought I’d share some highlights
