LFL nip slips a thing of the past
In the early days of the sport, there were occasional nipple slips from ill-fitting lingerie uniforms. Now the uniforms seem a little snugger and players have taken the extra precaution of wearing pasties or even tape on their nipples.
I guess that’s progress.
Check out the anecdotal photographic evidence here. (Click photos for larger view.)
In the top photo, Minnesota Valkyrie running back Leekplay Paye flashes some yellow nipple tape in a game on Aug. 26. (See MTV's Clutch Blog.)
And in the LFL’s All Fantasy Game on July 30, a defender shows some pink nipple tape. (Photo by Dave Gruggen.)
The LFL is now in its third season and seems to be fairly successful as fringe sports go. It still isn’t treated as a sport by the mainstream media, but it’s developing a fan base.
