It isn’t often we have articles on TLP that cater to sports fans! You may have heard of the Lingerie Bowl: a pay-per-view halftime show for the Super Bowl featuring scantily clad women playing their own football game. But now that halftime show has grown into the 10-team Lingerie Football League! These franchise teams will play games of 7-on-7 tackle football, encouraged by cheerleaders also wearing lingerie.
Last year, the Lingerie Bowl was canceled. The promoters didn’t process the permits in time and football fans were disappointed when the only football game of the day was the actual Super Bowl. But now, the Lingerie Bowl is back on track and has grown into a whole league, the LFL, with team names like the San Diego Seduction, Phoenix Scorch, Tampa Breeze, LA Temptation, Miami Caliente, Chicago Bliss, and Dallas Desire. The Staples Center has already been booked for the LA squad, and the Seattle Mist hopes to play at the Key Arena in the Seattle Center (once home to the Seattle SuperSonics).
The players will earn more than $40,000 annually, according to the league’s creator, Mitch Mortazza. If you want to play in the league, there is a link on the LFL’s website. The LFL’s Myspace page also has information on intern positions. The schedule for the LFL will be released in April 2009.
