"True Fantasy Football"

The Lingerie Bowl takes a page from the Victoria's Secret playbook.

This just in over both the Evil Genius Self-Parody and the Women With Insufficient Protective Gear wires: Super Bowl halftime gimmick Lingerie Football (no, yeah, as in gridiron sport, not wedding shower divertissement) is set to become a real live league of its own, with 10 franchise teams (The Seattle Mist? Clearly no match for the Phoenix Scorch) and a full-on bowl in Tampa next year, where they will likely find themselves embroiled in scandal if a nipple does not pop out during the halftime show. But before we get our teddies in too much of a twist, let us remember: They will crumple in the face of the juggernaut that is Puppy Bowl.
