The Seattle Mist of the Lingerie Football League are holding a minicamp this week, and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer valiantly sent a photographer to snap pictures of this watershed moment in sports history. (I smell Puuuuuliiitzerrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!) Also on hand was columnist Jim Moore:
“Yes it’s sexy, but we have to maintain the fan base by giving them good competitive football,” said LFL founder and chairman Mitchell Mortaza, who was at Wednesday’s minicamp. [...] When looking for attributes, Mortaza said the league wants players who are confident, athletic and beautiful.
“In that order?” he was asked.
“Absolutely,” he said. “But we’re not going to have 225-pound bruisers out there either.”
It’s what they’re tentatively calling the “No Fat Chicks” rule. Anyway, we’ve got a nice little collection of photos here, but there’s plenty more at the PI’s gallery. It’s the first time I’ve ever been aroused by pro football players. Well, except for Steve Largent. But I was young and hadn’t learned to suppress those feelings yet.
