Lingerie Football League invades Charm City

May 3, 2010

Baltimore city has incorporated a new outlook for football as the city is now participating in the Lingerie Football League (LFL) as the Baltimore Charm.

The league is an all-female league where the girls wear lingerie-type uniforms as they play full-contact football.

Over the weekend on May 2, at First Mariner Arena, LFL held tryouts for Baltimore Charm that brought a crowd of girls with bare mid-riffs and showing cleavage with full make-up—but don’t think these girls don’t know how to take a hit or sprint down the field.

A student at Towson University tried out for the Baltimore Charm after her roommate found an article about it, so they decided to try out together.

” The idea of us being in the LFL started as a joke, but a few weeks after we heard about the league they announced Baltimore tryouts,” Shay Kemble, a senior at Towson, said. “We both wavered back and forth as to whether we should actually go or not, but decided to do it just to say we did it and to see if we were good enough to compete with the other girls.”

About 70 people tried out for the Baltimore Charm Sunday. It will be the newest in the 10-team Lingerie Football League. So far, the LFL has peaked interest in some and caused racy sneers from others.

“I don’t think there is anything wrong with showing off some great abs and I really don’t think the uniforms are that scandalous,” said Kemble.  “I, personally, would feel great to show off an athletic body.  I don’t think it exploits women at all because it is just as much about having skill as about having looks.” (more…)
