It's a sad week in sports my friend. We mourn the tragic and untimely demise of the Lingerie Bowl. No, you will not have the opportunity to tune into scantily clad attractive women playing indoor football and ogle on a pay-per-view basis at halftime of the Super Bowl.
Organizers of the Lingerie Bowl have stated that this year's event has been cancelled.
Horizon Productions, the company that promotes the event, which in previous years was held in Los Angeles, said the city of Scottsdale took too long to process its permits and organizers were left without enough time to find an alternative venue, the Arizona Republic reported Wednesday.
Lingerie Bowl V Cancelled Lingerie Bowl V Cancelled
The Bowl was widely publicized in Scottsdale since the location was announced last February, and more than 200 women auditioned for a spot in the lingerie-clad football game at the Jackrabbit Supper Club & Lounge in August.
The participants wore lingerie-like short shorts, sports bra's and some protective gear.
Your choices now would seem to be limited to watching the halftime excess put on by the NFL or stand in line to get rid of the first half's liquid intake and make room for the consumption of the second half.
This is the second time in two years that the Lingerie Bowl has been touted and then canceled at the eleventh hour and fifty-ninth minute.
There is a halftime viewing option for those of you who simply cannot stomach the Super Bowl halftime extravaganza. Animal Planet will have the "Puppy Bowl" on during halftime using puppies as participants in something that is supposed to resemble football.
