Putting the fantasy in football

I've been hearing about fantasy football for years, although I've never paid it much attention. Now I see why. Who wants to watch some over-padded, barely recognizable, beefy guys tackle one another time and again when the "real" fantasy of football has just been unveiled: the Lingerie Football League.

Now that there are nearly naked women playing full-contact football in only helmets and shoulder pads--with the briefest of bikinis--it makes me wonder: Why do NFL players wear all that protection? What babies.

This brings to mind the old Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers discussion. Yes, Astaire was a great dancer, but Rogers did everything he did--and she did it backwards and in high heels.

With women playing the big manly game in their skivvies, don't you think the pros are feeling just a little bit silly right about now?!?!
