The Lingerie Football League delivers a double-header of hard-hitting action as four teams clash for conference supremacy and a trip to Lingerie Bowl IX. In the Eastern Conference game, Breeze quarterback K.K. Matheny kicks off the afternoon with crisp passes, pitted against Passion running back and reigning LFL offensive player of the year Marirose Roach. At 2:30 p.m., defending two-time champions the Los Angeles Temptation storm the field seeking their third straight Western Conference championship and the garter belts they lost the last time they played the arena. Countering their aggressive style, Sin star defensive end Sunshine Misa-Uli wields her full-contact fury to pummel running backs at the line, wallop wide receivers across the middle, and intimidate concession-stand workers into offering free soda refills.
The Lingerie Football League has drawn its share of enthusiasts and detractors. Rick Chandler of NBC Sports dubbed it “the fastest-growing sports league in the nation,” though some critics argue that petite pads and bikini bottoms besmirch the purity of the pigskin. From seats on the sidelines, fans can decide for themselves whether lingerie-clad ladies bear a new torch for the sport or whether they blemish the hallowed football halls that are regularly mopped by foam-finger sponges and Mike Ditka mustaches.
