Lingerie Football Could Be The Most Lucrative Women’s “Sport”

Apparently it’s not enough to play at Wimbledon with your bum hanging out, ladies.

Lingerie football, like puppy football, is not a real sport. But three cable networks are interested in broadcasting titillating tackles, according to Mitchell Mortaza, the Lingerie Football League’s founder. And why wouldn’t they want to broadcast it? According to the Orlando Sentinel, the games have the potential, from a business perspective, to be the most lucrative women’s sport — er, “sport.” The fact the women submit head shots for the pleasure of playing in bras, panties and garter belts apparently is negligible. “The women are comfortable once they understand how they’re positioned as athletes,” Mortaza told the Orlando Sentinel. “We don’t see it being an issue.” Yeah, I bet it’s really empowering, too!

Today’s Lady News: Kansas City Chiefs Player Says The Team “Imported” Women To Hotel Rooms

  • In an upcoming issue of ESPN The Magazine, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe reveals a woman was stashed in every hotel room at a game in San Diego in 2007. “Some of my teammates had it set up so there was a girl in every room,” Bowe said. “The older guys get on MySpace and Facebook a week before we go to a city; when a pretty one writes back, they arrange to fly her in three or four days in advance. They call it ‘importing.’” Ick! Fellow player Jimmy Wilkinson has called Bowe’s comments “not true” and says he is making his married teammates look bad. [Kansas City Star]
  • A so-called “crisis pregnancy center” in Silver Springs, Maryland, is suing Montgomery County, Maryland, over a new law that would require it to post a disclaimer clarifying that it does not provide abortions, offer referrals to abortion clinics, and does not have a licensed medical professional on staff. Politicians enacted the law based on the belief that “crisis pregnancy centers” — which often pop up near legitimate abortion clinics — were intentionally misleading women to dissuade them from ending a pregnancy. The lawsuit filed on Wednesday by Centro Tepeyac Women’s Center, however, says the new law restricts their freedom of speech. [Washington Post]

Football Star Lawrence Taylor Accused In Rape Of 15-Year-Old Girl

Another day, another sports star accused of rape: Lawrence Taylor, a former football player for the New York Giants, was arrested today for allegedly sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl. The girl, whose identity will likely be kept secret because of her young age, was allegedly prostituted out by a pimp at a Holiday Inn in Suffern, New York. Police say the victim, a teen runaway from Bronx, New York, missing since March, was also allegedly beaten during the liaison, although it’s unclear who the beating came from. The girl reportedly texted her uncle while her pimp was driving back to the Bronx and he called the police, who intercepted the car. The teen was taken to a hospital, where she was treated for a punch to her face and given a rape examination. Taylor, who has had numerous past run-ins with the law involving drugs, will be charged with third-degree rape, which includes charges of sex with a minor. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Saints Linebacker Scott Fujita Jumps Into Tim Tebow Commerical Debate

  • Have you been following the Super Bowl kerfluffle? During the game, CBS will be airing an anti-abortion commercial from the conservative organization Focus on the Family starring Tim Tebow, but the channel told a gay dating company called Man Date that their commercial would not be allowed to run. Now New Orleans Saints linebacker Scott Fujita has stepped into the fray by voicing his support for reproductive rights. On Tuesday, Fujita said he respects Tebow’s choice to be in the ad, but admitted “he and I might not see eye to eye all the way.” Fujita added that he was born to a teen mother and given up for adoption. “I’m just so thankful she had the courage and the support system to be able to carry out the pregnancy,” he said. “I wouldn’t expect that of everybody.” Jeez Louise, when did the dang Super Bowl become about politics?!

Mind Of Man: How To Watch Football

mind of man photo

This Sunday is the Academy Awards of Football and, believe it or not, there are a lot of people who couldn’t care less about this High Holy Day. But if you’re dating a pigskin junkie, you have very little choice: You’re going to be dragged to a get-together where jerseys and body paint are the fashion. Normally, I don’t get wildly excited about football, but this year is a little different for me. I usually just inhale nachos until the Halftime Show, then return to carbo-grazing. Occasionally, I’ll look at the score, or ask if anything is broken.

But for those women (and men) who dread an entire day dedicated to cheering human freight trucks slathered in spandex, please consider that Super Bowl Sunday is a day when you are allowed to eat with your fingers, wear fat pants out, and not actually have to talk to anyone. Just grunt. These are positives. Just show up and do your best dinosaur impersonation. Keep reading »

University Of Tennessee Recruits Football Players With Sexy Co-Ed “Hostesses”

Since seeing “The Blind Side” a few weeks ago, I have totally become an expert on college football recruiting and NCAA violations. So when the New York Times did a piece on the University of Tennessee’s football recruitment, for once in my life, I actually understood what they were talking about. Tennessee is in hot water for using sexy college co-ed “hostesses” to lure high school athletes to their school, and the NCAA is investigating to see how many violations they’ve made, since their coach Lane Kiffin has been bragging about it. The NCAA has super strict rules on what is appropriate for luring in athletes. Whoring out women to attract innocent high school jocks is not within that category. [NY Times] Keep reading »
