If Sunday’s pay-per-view halftime Lingerie Bowl match-up between the LA Temptation and Philadelphia Passion is anywhere near as entertaining as Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Ron Kantowski‘s take on Wednesday’s media day, beer bellied Lingerie Football League fans will definitely get their money’s worth.
This is the first time the event has been held in Sin City, a place Kantowski notes is the next best thing to goal posts being erected at the Playboy Mansion grotto. He also gets a kick out of the fact that the over-under betting line for the game, 36 ½, “curiously coincides” with the physical attributes of the Temptation’s offensive line.
Very few people in the LA media, sports or otherwise, can probably name the quarterback of the Temptation. She is Ashley Salerno (pictured), and Kantowski thinks there’s still time for her to catch the eye of a certain NFL soul mate.
One of the Los Angeles coaches told me the 20-year-old Salerno is the Aaron Rodgers of the LFL – young, strong arm, makes good decisions, hasn’t yet heard from Brett Favre. But having seen her in her “uniform” and considering it’s only Thursday, there’s still time.
Laugh all you want. The LFL and its sponsors are thriving, with four new teams including the Vegas Sin set to be added to the league next season.
