Important sports story
A story with serious ramifications in the world of sport: The Lingerie Football League is taking a year off to "promote the game."
Promote the game? What are they going to do, go to schools and conduct instructional clinics? The only reason anyone would watch this is out of hope for a wardrobe malfunction. I knew this day would come. Purists will say the game should remain indoors but those of us who follow the intricacies of it knew it was only a matter of time before they moved to larger outdoor venues...
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- The U.S. Lingerie Football League is forgoing a 2012 season in order to expand the sport abroad and refocus it as a warm-weather game.
Spokesman Jim Wallin said Thursday the LFL will resume playing in April 2013 on a spring-summer playing schedule. He says the hiatus will also allow the league to concentrate on launching in Canada this fall and free U.S. players to participate in a promotional all-star tour.
