Courageous or Dumb? "Lingerie Football League"

Are you ready for some football?

When I first heard about the Lingerie Football League, I thought it was a joke. As in, "there really can't be an entire league of women teams that compete in lingerie - it's all a facade! Right?


The Seattle Mist

The LFL is for real! The concept of the LFL originated from the Super Bowl halftime alternative television special called the Lingerie Bowl which draws millions of viewers worldwide. The event is a pay-per-view event which is shown annually directly opposite the Super Bowl halftime show. The show has become a staple for many and currently is broadcast in 85 countries. Sure, I remember the ads - But I wouldn't dare miss the halftime show to watch a "powder puff" game. At least that was my thinking back then. Now I know differently. It's more than a "powder puff" game.

The teams play full-contact football which is similar to other indoor football leagues. They play 7 on 7 players on a 50 yard field. Uniforms consist of helmets, shoulder pads, elbow pads, knee pads, bras, and panties. (I wonder if they'll be wearing sports bras or padded bras?) There are no field goals and no punts. There is a kickoff to start the game and the second half.

There are currently two Conferences.

The Eastern Conference:

  1. Philadelphia Passion
  2. Chicago Bliss
  3. Miami Caliente
  4. New York Majesty
  5. Tampa Breeze

The Western Conference:

  1. Dallas Desire
  2. Denver Dream
  3. Los Angeles Temptation
  4. San Diego Seduction
  5. Seattle Mist

    (In 2010, Charlotte, North Carolina will be getting a team called the Charlotte Crush)

    The league was founded by Mitchell Mortaza, a 35-year-old sports marketer from Los Angeles about six years ago. The league's administrative offices are in West Hollywood, California.

Without a doubt, this league adds a whole new dimension to fantasy football! The kind where grown men sit around and hope for an equipment malfunction of some sort and the kind where High Definition television makes all the difference in the world. I still don't think I'll miss the halftime show but the next time I see a game on television, I might tune in for a few ummm Downs!

The San Diego Seduction? Ha. You've got to be kidding! Too much.

Oh my! :P

Jane Turley said...

An equipment malfunction eh? Really, I thought you were above that kind of thing!!

I like men's wrestling. But I swear those pants are glued on:)

I might set up my own team "Brit Bloomers" what d'you reckon?

Footsteps said...

No WAY!! Just thinking... a few games into the season, those ladies are going to be wearing a few bruises and abrasions and may not be looking quite so lovely.

I voiced a reality TV show proposal recently that convinced me there aren't too many limits to what people will watch anymore!

Bowie Mike - I hear an expansion team is going to "Bowie"

Tami - You heard it here first.

Jane - Brit Bloomers.... Not too appealing. Let's keep trying.

Footsteps - Make-up does wonders. Gotta hear more details on the reality show. Sounds juicy.

That is correct II, I will be a co-investor in the team in Bowie. I intend to take a hands on approach in the day to day operations of the team. An organization that combines two of my favorite things, football and women, gotta love it.

Jane Turley said...

So you don't fancy my Brit Bloomers then?! Shocking, shocking!

How about London Lovelies then? Not tempting enough? about Busty Brits then?

Ps: I'd have to manage that team as unfortunately I wouldn't qualify to play:)
