The True Fantasy Football
Just when I think things couldn't get more strange, they do. I was watching a little TV from bed the other night around midnight, flipping through the channels, checking out the viewing possibilties, when I saw a football game in progress, I continued the flipping, when it occurred to me there was something strange about that football game. I returned to the channel (MTV2, I believe it was) and there was, indeed, a football game in progress.
What had registered in the back of my mind as strange was the uniforms and the players. What looked like Playboy models in bras, bikini panties, and garters were actually engaged in a game of football. Shoulder pads, helmets and kneepads were in use, looking out of place with the skimpy bras and panties. We watched for a bit, and I do have to say they looked like they were playing some serious football.
I say serious, but it is difficult to take seriously a league with team names like Orlando Fantasy, Los Angeles Temptation, Denver Dream, and San Diego Seduction, just to name a few! I remember a couple of years ago there were women's football teams playing in the town of Old Orchard, just a couple of miles from my house. I read that they were having trouble supporting the team financially...but these ladies looked like football players and wore typical football players uniforms. I can see the National Lingerie Football League has figured out how to attract an audience: Take girls with smokin' bodies, put them in as skimpiest uniforms possible, get them to tackle each other, and the spectators will show up in droves!
I got the video above and the photos below off the web after doing a Google search for Lingerie Football.
I'm sure the fans are hoping for a uniform mal-function. Amazingly, there seemed to be nearly as many women in the stands as man.
