Gridiron girls play Lingerie Bowl final in bras and knickers

   Feb 7, 12:17 pm

London, Feb 7 (ANI): Lingerie Football League's final in Las Vegas was a sight to behold as scantily-clad women wearing only helmets, sports bras, knickers, garters, and shoulder, knee and elbow pads heated up millions of television sets on Sunday.

The game was set up as a politically-incorrect alternative to the Super Bowl half-time show.

While approximately 100million sports fans watched the Super Bowl on Sunday, Los Angeles Temptation competed against Philadelphia Passion in the risque Lingerie Football League 's Lingerie Bowl IX at the Orleans Arena.

The event saw defending champions Los Angeles Temptation keep their crown with a 28-6 massive win.

Until a few years ago, the event was only a pay-per-view substitute to the tedious, PC Super Bowl half-time concert, the Daily Mail reported.

But it has now generated its own industry and a league which boasts 12 teams playing in front of crowds in their thousands.

The LFL features a two-conference format.

The Baltimore Charm, Cleveland Crush, Orlando Fantasy, Philadelphia Passion, Tampa Breeze and Toronto Triumph battle in the Eastern Conference.

While Chicago Bliss, Green Bay Chill, Las Vegas Sin, Los Angeles Temptation, Minnesota Valkyrie and Seattle Mist compete in the Western Conference.

And at the end of the season, the 11-girl team that proves itself to be the best contender is rewarded with the Lingerie Bowl trophy in a showdown between the conference winners. (ANI)
