A Lingerie Football League wants to open bring a team of ladiesÂ toÂ Oklahoma City. Mayor Mick Cornett is not thrilled, but says that he can’t stop it alone. He is one vote out of nine.
Oklahoma City recently acquiredÂ its first pro-basketball team called The Thunder. The cityÂ goes nuts supporting that NBA team. This team would be part of the LFL, which is the Lingerie Football League. Ladies play tackle football in their underwear, and the mayor is not thrilled. The city council would have to approve the move, but the team wants to start in Oklahoma City before the next season.
USA Today reports, “The league is made up of teams featuring women playing tackle football while wearing halter style tops and tight shorts under their football gear.”Â Â
Why would the mayor be against the Lingerie Football League? He’s always been for bringing more sport venues to OKC? The problem is Oklahoma is a very red, conservative state, and those conservative values may be problematic for the league.
As for revenue, there will be no problem. Oklahomans love their sports, and being red-blooded Americans, ladies in their underwear are welcome.
