Football Might Be Getting A Whole Lot Sexier In Nashville

Um, are LFL refs paid? Because that looks like a pretty awesome gig.

And no, this has absolutely nothing to do with Vince Young and reports of him reverting back into his Drunken Shirtless Mode. Thank God.

Nope, I’m talking about a little something called the Lingerie Football League. Word on the street is the LFL is looking into expansion (heh) and they have set their sexy sights on Nashville.

Mitchell Mortaza, founder and chairman of the Lingerie Football League, believes the Tennessee town would be a “perfect market” for the LFL to sleekly slide into.

Via The Tennessean:

“We’re in an aggressive growth mode, when other sports, especially women’s sports, are scaling back,’’ said Mortaza, 37, whose offices are in West Hollywood, Calif.

Aggressive growth mode? Oh man, I hope he elected to use that terminology loaded with innuendo on purpose. Mortaza continues:

“Our girls come from all walks of life, and they are 100 percent former college athletes,” he said, acknowledging that one of the requirements to play “is to be beautiful, but they also have to be athletic, they can’t be beautiful and just be prancing around.”

I don’t mean to split hairs here, but just because a gal worked in a strip club to pay their way through college doesn’t necessarily make her a “former college athlete.” But hey, who am I to criticize? I’m a college graduate who never participated in athletics in the least. Further, I’m still chuckling about “aggressive growth mode,” so there you go.

Anyway, if the fine city of Nashville wanted my advice – which I am sure they don’t – I say go for it. The Lingerie Football League has been a relative success in the 10 markets it is presently in, so why not give it a shot? One thing, though: if the LFL does place an expansion franchise there, please name the team the Nashville Pussy. It works on so many levels.
