As if there wasn’t enough pigskin action to look forward to with the upcoming NFL season starting next week, here comes Lingerie Football. And don’t think these are some weak little girls just running around in lingerie. Although they do show a lot of skin, they know how to handle their football. Here’s a story about one new team in Canada opening night. Enjoy and maybe plan on catching a game!

“I was expecting some sloppy, soft hitting stuff,” Abbotsford fan Matt Baillet told the News’ reporter Kevin Mills. “But, you know, these girls actually hit pretty hard so good on them. They’re athletes. I’ll come again.”
While they played hard the Rage, despite the experience of quarterback Nikki Johnson, an import who has played in the American LFL, were unable to penetrate the aggressive and speedy Angel defenders. Defensively they had trouble with Mary Anne Hanson, the Angels quarterback making her LFL debut. The Angles were helped by a home team crowd that cheered throughout and even did the wave.
The league began as a Super Bowl half-time show/game available on a pay-per-view basis. The concept expanded into a league in 2009. There are currently 12 franchises in the U.S., such as the defending champs, the L.A. Temptation, the Seattle Mist, the Philadelphia Passion and the Las Vegas Sin.
There are just two more teams in Canada, the Saskatoon Sirens and Toronto Triumph. The next game in the Canadian Lingerie Football League sees the Angels travel to Saskatoon to play the Sirens on Saturday, Sept. 1.
