Lingerie Football League Debuts This Friday

The controversial Lingerie Football League officially begins its season this Friday, Sept. 4. What started as a Super Bowl halftime show has now turned into a league with a 20-week season. Twelve teams of women will take turns playing 7-on-7 tackle football every Friday night, and this week’s lucky two are the Chicago Bliss and Miami Caliente. You could compare the sport to powder puff football because the players are female, and they’re not wearing much for pads. The money-making twist, however, is that the ladies are clad in lingerie from head to toe — or should I say from bust to buttocks?

Of course the rules are different too. The field is only 50 yards long instead of 100 and the extra point made after a team scores a touchdown is thrown in, not kicked. Oh, and the game consists of two 15-minute halves, as opposed to four 15-minute quarters. 

No matter what your opinion is about the league up to this point, it will definitely be an interesting way to start off the Labor Day weekend. All I ask for is that there are no crazy wardrobe malfunctions this Friday night.
