Not only is this a big week for the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers, but it is also a big weekend coming up for those babes who play in the Lingerie Football League! This weekend the Los Angeles Temptation and the Philadelphia Passion go at it in the Lingerie Bowl, which will be held in Las Vegas and will go up against the Black Eyed Peas half-time show on Super Bowl Sunday.
Playboy has hopped on the LFL bandwagon bigtime, devoting its February issue to a HOT photo spread featuring the league. And the league has announced big expansion plans, with new teams in Las Vegas, Cleveland and even Green Bay! Hey, maybe Saskatchewan should try and get a team while we are at it.
You know, this is all well and good, and these ladies who play in the league are a lot of fun both on and off the field, but make no mistake about it -- this league is completely stupid. Think about it -- it's women playing football in lingerie. You cannot take it seriously. This league is junk sports entertainment and shades of the WWE.
It's an especially sad situation for ladies who might be serious about playing the game for real, just like guys do. If you're a woman and you want to play football, your only hope is to don these ridiculous outfits in the LFL!
You know what's really sad? The NFL talks are going so badly that this might be the only pro football we get next year at this same time. We'll all be stuck watching the women in lingerie playing on Super Bowl Sunday next year at the rate things are going, and that'll beg the question about which league is the bigger joke: the LFL or the NFL.
