File this under under both great news and awesome trends: a lingerie basketball league called the LBL has sprung up, presumably because of the success of the LFL, the Lingerie Football League (aherrrrrm, which airs on MTV2). At this rate there will be lingerie hockey, baseball and soccer leagues by 2014, to which we say: nods approvingly.
The LBL appears to be governed by traditional basketball rules, the only difference being that they women wear lingerie, not shorts and jerseys. Bet you didn’t see that coming. Keeping with the lingerie/babe theme, the four current teams, all based out of Los Angeles, are named the Glam, Beauties, Divas and Starlets. The young league is now two weeks into its inaugural season. You may be thinking, “hey, the WNBA has floundered and they have some pretty good players,” but that ignores a simple truth–that men like women’s boobies much, much more than women’s basketball.
We hope by now you’re ready for the league’s tagline. Here goes: “Where beauty meets the hardwood.” Yep, they went there. Now take a gander at more of the LBL’s lovely ladies.
