“This isn’t a sorority league—get that out of your mind!” Chicago Bliss Head Coach Matt Sinclair told the 36 women trying out for the Lingerie Football League Sunday, July 25, at Players Indoor Sports Center in Naperville.
Over the course of three hours, the spandex-wearing women were put through a series of grueling drills at the first day of training camp for the LFL team the Chicago Bliss. Current members of the Bliss helped to run the tryouts as LFL hopefuls were tested on their running, throwing and catching skills. As LFL is a full-contact sport, they were also asked to practice pushing their way through several defensive players. With 20 spots open on the 2010 roster, some of these ladies may make it onto camp and even the official team. In the process, they’re finding out that the LFL might be nice to watch, but it’s no mere beauty pageant.
