Formerly the Lingerie Football League, the Legends Football League stands as the "fastest-growing pro sports league in the nation" according to NBC Sports correspondent Rick Chandler. That success owes much to the league's unique format, which pits two exclusively female teams in alluring uniforms against each other in full-contact football games on a 50-yard field. Donning football pads and helmets over their revealing performance wear, the female athletes block, juke, and sprint uninhibited by such frivolous gear as the NFL's heavy chainmail hauberks.
Pets are more than just animals, they’re members of the family. Along with that belief comes a certain attitude that the pet lovers at Shaggy Chic love to indulge. Kelly Petersen, the founder of Shaggy Chic, takes great pride in pampering her pets, though it has sometimes brought her judgment and scrutiny.
But take a look around her salon, and it doesn’t appear that judgmental eyes have affected Kelly one bit. She and her staff lovingly primp pups and other pets with a signature line of paraben-free shampoos, conditioners, detanglers, and fur fresheners, all of which are made in the United States from natural ingredients. In the salon, they groom pets with services that include baths, fur blowouts, nail trims, and ear cleaning. They can also spruce up furry friends with additional services such as teeth brushing, blueberry facials, and pawdicures that include paw-pad massages and nail polish.

Named the staff pick for the Best Spa in Las Vegas 2009 and 2012 by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Ritual Salon and Spa leads bodies on a tour of relaxation surrounded by glamorous ?70s-style decor. At the Green Valley location, vermilion walls and miniature Buddha statues glow under retro textured lamps, and the Summerlin location melds soothing green and earth tones with rich brocade and upholstery. If the spas feel like lounges, it's no mistake: the staffers regularly host a Wednesday girls' night out stocked with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and mini spa treatments. At each location, customized facials pamper visages with ?minence Organics products, and massages attack stress with Swedish strokes enhanced by the warmth of heated stones and the soothing melodies of Viking battle hymns.
Dr. Timothy Perozek, the official ophthalmologist of the Las Vegas 51s baseball team, and his squad at See Right Now bring the highest level of care to the examination and correction of maladjusted eyes. In the eye exam and contact-lens fitting, soul windows are carefully tested with a variety of lenses to root out conditions such as astigmatism and near- or shortsightedness, the leading reasons that so few children grow up to be astronauts, fighter pilots, and Batmen. Data in hand, Dr. Perozek can fit eye-hugging lenses to underperforming corneas, transforming myopic peepers into paragons of optical acuity. The squintily inclined also can opt for a pair of Lindberg ($550) or Blink frames ($195, including single-vision lenses) or simply pick up some Eyebobs reading glasses ($65) to make reciting the phone book even more enjoyable. Sunglasses from Prada ($225), Oakley ($150), and other premium brands keep pupils protected from glare and poker faces protected from the probing gazes of opponents.
