In the beginning (not that beginning), there was the Bud Bowl. Then the Butt Bowl. Now we have the Lingerie Bowl. I know, I know, I missed the announcement earlier this summer. Better late than never, right?
So they say that these women will be playing 7-on-7 full contact football during the Super Bowl halftime show. At first glance, that sounds much better than the No Doubt and Shania show last year, or Britney and Aerosmith the year before that. But then I read further in the announcement, and there they are. The two words that men dread to hear. No nudity.
Why in the world would I pay $20 to see women play football in lingerie when there won’t be any nudity? I mean come on – I have no problems with women participating in sports, but let’s be real here. Powder Puff is Powder Puff. And that’s okay. But it’s only fun to watch if your girl is on the other team while you’re standing on the sidelines, cheering like a moron. Otherwise? Well, it’s Powder Puff.
So I’m wondering how many guys will plunk down their $20 with the hope of seeing nudity, when the announcement already told them there won’t be any? I suspect there will be plenty, because guys will read the beginning of the release (models… full contact… lingerie) and will never make it to near the bottom when they mention those two words. But I don’t think I’ll be one of them.
Wait a minute – what’s this? A quote from Team Euphoria captain Angie Everhart about that statement? Hmm… That’s what they say, but I’m going to be ripping off tops.
Maybe I need to find a spare twenty after all.
