The Lingerie Football League, which originated in 2004, now has 10 teams in 10 different cities and the games are broadcast on MTV2. The featured players explain the league is a far cry from the girly powder puff games many imagine. "People think it's just a bunch of prissy girls playing two-hand touch," says Vanessa Sanchez. However, she explains that's a misconception: "We like to look hot, but we like to hit people, too." Adds Ashley Helmstetter: "It's real athletes playing real football...It's not just inexperienced models running around pretending to tackle one another."
The two conference winners of the Lingerie Football League are set to meet in the eighth annual Lingerie Bowl LIVE on Super Bowl Sunday (February 6) on Pay-Per-View at 8pm ET.
