The Lingerie Football League (yes, you read that right) will hold an open tryout for Dallas' Desire football team this Friday.
What is the LFL you ask? It's an extension of the immensely successful pay-per-view special that, much to the chagrin of the NFL, runs in direct competition to the ballyhooed and often disappointing Super Bowl half-time extravaganza put on by the boy's league each winter.
To further explain it ... it's simply models in lingerie playing 7-on-7 tackle football against other similarly steamy-named teams. So, hot girls who can throw, catch and tackle ... this article, and the invitation by the LFL contained within, is for you.
Officials with the league are hosting a scouting combine (football-speak for a tryout) at QuickTrip Park beginning at 10 a.m. this Friday. Model-athletes will be run through a variety of traditional football drills to find the top 12 football femmes fatales.
Those 12 will be offered a spot on the Desire roster.
The new teammates will then enjoy a whirlwind weekend where they will be unveiled to the media and fans on Saturday during a photoshoot and later a red-carpet kick-off party at one of Dallas' more popular nightspots.
But the fun doesn't end there. The girls will train, train, train, leading up to the actual kick-off on Friday, Sept. 25, when the Desire sprint on to the gridiron to smother ... douse ... quench the Phoenix Scorch. (Sorry, had a hard time finding the right verb to illustrate a sexy beating.)

In the LFL, the teams play a pretty abbreviated season of only four games -- two of which are at home -- so you may want to look into tickets now.
The team's second home game is against Seattle on Oct. 23. After that, the girls will head out to suppress the San Diego Seduction before quelling the Los Angeles Temptation on Nov. 20 and Jan. 8, 2010, respectively. (Look at those verbs in action!)
So, information you need to know: The combine begins at 11 a.m. at QuickTrip Park in Grand Prairie, but registrants will need to arrive at 10 a.m. to sign up. Candidates are asked to wear tranditional workout clothes to the combine -- not lingerie. Darn it.
On Saturday, the kick-off party begins at 10 p.m. with red-carpet player introductions at Purgatory Nightclub. Players who make the cut will also need to be available for a team photoshoot Saturday afternoon. Let's hope those who make the team had Valentine's Day plans that their boyfriends won't mind rescheduling.
The other five franchises in the LFL are the Chicago Bliss, New England Euphoria, Atlanta Steam, Tampa Breeze and Miami Caliente. For more information on the Lingerie Football League, visit lflus.com.
