Playing the Field: Bikini basketball and Beyonce
The Lingerie Football League is undergoing an extreme makeover of sorts.
In January, the league announced plans to switch to less revealing uniforms, beefed up with bigger shoulder pads, and change the “sexy” team logos. The lovely ladies won’t be required to wear bras, panties or garters in the newly-named Legends Football League.
One woman’s loss is another woman’s gain.
As such, re-introducing the Bikini Basketball Association (BBA), a little league we first noticed last summer. The BBA debuts June 1 with six teams: Atlanta Peaches, Miami Spice, Orlando Lady Cats, Minnesota Mist, Illinois Heat, Philadelphia Diamonds. (By the way, the Philadelphia franchise is holding an open tryout Saturday).
The bikini ballers are drawing quite well from the semi-celebrity pool of athletes, too. Deion Sanders daughter, Deiondra, signed up with Atlanta, while former Sixers center Samuel Dalembert’s sister, Melissa, is set to play for Miami.
Personally, if that WNBA career doesn’t work out next year, we would like to see Notre Dame star Skylar Diggins put her G-string in the mix. We’d also settle for Bernie Kosar’s offspring, or perhaps Paulina Gretzky can dribble a basketball. We can hope anyway.
Super Bowl blackout solved
Roger Goodell’s long nightmare is over. The NFL’s investigation on the Super Bowl blackout revealed that a a relay, a device used to protect the stadium’s power supply, actually was the culprit.
Our sources have indicated that said relay is now being suspended for a game and fined $100,000. After all, Goodell has to protect the safety of his players, right?
Call us Jim Garrison, but we’re not buying this explanation.
This sounds like an excuse borrowed from the movie “Ocean’s Eleven.” No, we’re still convinced Beyonce’s sexy stage stomping and soul-shaking vocals shattered the lights. It was all part of some Illuminati plan to rule the world.
Who runs the world? Girls. Girls. Girls …
Yes, that is exactly what happened.
