The league held tryouts over the weekend which, predictably, featured plenty of cleavage and even some football. But just so there's no confusion: "This is not a cheerleading camp," screamed Lingerie Football League founder Mitchell S. Mortaza, according to the Baltimore Sun.
About 70 people tried out for the Baltimore Charm Sunday. It will be the newest in the 10-team Lingerie Football League - which gets both sneers and cheers for its racy nature.Or, more succinctly: "I want to be a girl, but I want to be able to hit too," said Samantha Allen, 28, a personal trainer who drove from New Jersey to try out for the team.
The women who showed up ... ranged in age from 18 to 44. There was a pharmaceutical sales representative, an aesthetician, a personal trainer and a financial analyst. Hard-core athletes trained beside those who came out of curiosity. All said they had heard criticism about the league; mainly that it exploits women. But they said they liked wearing sexy gear, even as they constantly tugged at their short shorts.
