MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Do you think you’ve got what it takes to take the gridiron in little more than a girdle? Are you ready to huddle along the line of scantily-clad scrimmage?

Time to break out the shoulder pads, because the Lingerie Football League is ready to give you your chance.

Open tryouts will be held this coming weekend for the Minneapolis LFL expansion team, which it was announced will be known as the Minnesota Valkyrie.

The tryouts will be held at Vadnais Sports Center in Vadnais Heights this Saturday from 7 to 11:30 p.m.

Aside from Minneapolis, other cities being included in the expansion are Cleveland, Las Vegas and Green Bay.

The sport has made a name for itself by showing scantily clad women in pads playing no-holds-barred football.

    This is pathetic……………….
    Football is a testosterone infused simulation of combat.
    Lingerie Football is estrogen driven desperation.

      There will be plenty of testosterone. It just won’t be on the field. It’ll be in the seats.

      I had a mouth full of Mt. Dew when I was reading this one and now it’s all over my screen. LOL.. This has to be their name. 🙂

  3. Can I be the Coach? says:

    I mean i guess i get it….but isnt this what Deja Vu, Dream Girls and King of Diamonds are for?

    Why suffer through watching girls play football just to get a peak at beautiful women?!

    1. Tad G says:

      bigger question …. why not????? lol

  4. Todd says:

    More importantly, are the tryouts open to the public?

  5. Earl says:

    Why were they not named the Honey Badgers?

    1. Tad G says:

      I heard the Honey Drippings was a finalist for names….but Pure Pleasure was tossed. shame

    Minnesota already has Women’s Football, the Minnesota Vixen. Why do we need women wearing next to nothing on a playing field? Aren’t the Minnesota Viking and Timberwolves cheerleaders enough?

    1. Jeff from s 'water says:

      you kinda answered your question ….. we need none of it. We want it !
      Like a true Republican I believe in supply and demand. I think it’s here.

      I intend to apply as a referee …. up close and personal and very involved I want to be. If a scrum breaks out I’ll head right into the pile to find the ….. ball

        Interesting that you say “scrum” implying that this team will be playing rugby, when in fact, the true “Minnesota Valkyries” is a women’s premier rugby league in the Twin Cities.

  7. Victim Du Jour says:

    Minnesota “Moose Lakers”

  8. Rachael thinks says:
