Dallas, Can I Interest You in Some Fantasy Football?

My apologies.

In pronouncing the death of football as ancillary entertainment in our newfound era of recession, I somehow overlooked a fledgling league of scantily clad females.

Let it be known that is the first - and last - time I ever type that sentence.

Turns out the Lingerie Football League is set to kick-off in Sept. 2009 with a franchise - the Dallas Desire - right here in our back yard.

The league, which will feature 7-on-7, full-contact, tiny bikini, tackle football, is a spin-off of the highly successful Lingerie Bowls from Super Bowl halftimes past.

The Desire will play its games at Grand Prairie's QuickTrip Park. As loyal Dallas Observer readers already know, sex (and all its intriguing entanglements) is indeed recession-proof.

Of course, I'll need several in-depth, one-on-one interviews with Desire players in intimate settings before I cast my judgement on this endeavor. - Richie Whitt
