Lingerie Football League tries to give it a go

Despite a recession that has hurt established professional sports and fringe sports alike, the Lingerie Football League – one of the most questionable pro sports leagues ever – still has plans to begin play this fall.
The LFL sent out an e-mail the other day announcing that tickets are going on sale Mon. March 16 for five of its 10 teams. (Since Tech-media-tainment covers both fringe sports and pretty women, we’re on the e-mail distribution list.)
If the LFL gets off the ground, I’ll be surprised. After all, its organizers haven’t been able to pull off their main publicity event, the Lingerie Bowl, for two straight years. The Lingerie Bowl was created as a pay-per-view alternative to the Super Bowl halftime show.
LFL tickets cost $8 to $63, but if part of the attraction is looking at pretty ladies, er, athletes, then it makes sense to get close to the field. That makes for a pricey guys’ night out or “man date.”
The Lingerie Football League kicks off Sept. 4 in Chicago. (Actually Hoffman Estates, Ill., a northwest suburb.)
