Lingerie football is coming to Baltimore

lingere football Ladies and gentlemen (but mostly gentlemen), let's give a warm welcome to the Baltimore Charm -- the newest branch of the Lingerie Football League.

Read it and rejoice. Or weep, if you're a feminist.

Yes yes, women will soon be playing football in lingerie at 1st Mariner Arena. Tackle football, no less. None of that flag football fluff (insert pun about two-hand touch). The arena is hosting open tryouts 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday.  

This is the best thing to happen to women's football since Anita Marks retired. Ba-Zing! ...

I'm not sure what this says about our society (they treat objects like women, man), but I'll tell you this: The Baltimore Charm gets Midnight Sun's Seal of Approval.

Here is a link to a photo gallery where you can peruse images of lingerie-clad football players.

lingerie football. need i say more?I love this paragraph from Chris Kaltenbach's story:

But this is clearly a league where the double entendre rules. "It's about being on top," one tough-talking player asserts. It's about "pushing myself harder than ever before," promises another. "You break a nail and get right back out there," growls a third. Most of the players, at least those featured on the LFL website, are decidedly thinner and curvier than your standard-issue NFL-type.

Hee hee!

The home opener is Oct. 1 against Tampa Breeze and the finale is Nov. 5 against Orlando Fantasy.

Any Midnight Sunners wanna try out?

Bidness must be hurting, need hits.

I love this LEAGUE, my buddies will be at the home opener on Oct 1st! Go Charm!!

I'm not on board with this. Fortunately, I'm predicting spectacular failure rather quickly.

Can anyone actually imagine going down there and watching that in person? How boring, and actually how un-sexy it would be in practice?

@Baltimore Chop -- you're right, this is probably much better in theory.


So what are the odds of having the next Midnight Sun get-together at the Arena during a game? LOL

Now guys won't have to wait until after the game to see strippers...

In my third year dorm, there was a girl who lived a few doors down from me who tried out for the Philly team a year or so ago. I'm not going to lie, she was really hot, but I don't think she made the roster.

Seems like a kind of lame fetish. Sounds like a push button beginning to a bad porno. Lingerie should be a prelude to something better than bad football.

Let me know when there's a B&D women's curling league.

Football without male homoeroticism? That's just un-American.

I think this is pretty lame but I'm also not exactly it's target audience. I guess it's better than the stripper mobile!

This seems spiritually connected to Hammerjacks somehow.

Lingerie Football is the BEST! I can't wait for the home opener on 10/1 against Tampa Bay. Should be a great party and I'll be in the first row. GO CHARM!

friggin awesome

See - I told you Anita Marks would land on her feet.

Wow, all I can say is wow. I am floored by this. What a horrible message for young girls.

what's the horrible message to young girls?

I think it sends a great message to women -- That football isn't just a sport for men, and they can play it with half the clothes! I think it's feminism at its finest.
