It is a problem faced by every man every single year. Do I watch Monday Night Football or the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show? Throughout this three hour period, many men are forced to flip channels back and forth. Many will end up missing some of the best parts of each program. Luckily, there is now a way to avoid this dilemma.
In 2009, a genius named Mitchell S. Mortaza created a league that combines the best aspects of both programs. His novel idea was known as the Lingerie Football League. This was a seven on seven tackle football league for beautiful women in their underwear. The league received mixed reviews during its first season. Some believed it was an amazing combination of men’s two favorite things, while others believed it was just a gimmick to get higher TV rating. Whatever Mortaza’s reasons for starting this league, it is a good thing it stuck around.
In 2013, Mortaza and the league’s front office based in Las Vegas, Nevada, decided it would be best to give the league a new image. The league renamed itself the Legends of Football League. This way it could get away from the “sleazier” public view it had gained, while still keeping its trademark initials which fans have come to know and love. The Legends of Football League would no longer feature women playing the sport in lingerie. Instead, the teams now each have their own line of sports apparel. In reality, it is not much different though.
The Legends of Football League is the answer to some of man’s biggest problems. This combination of football and beautiful women has begun to take over the world. The organization now has leagues in the United States, Canada, and Australia. Undoubtedly more will be coming soon. After all, what is better than watching a bunch of guys play football? Watching a bunch of underdressed women play football. That's what.
