Attention Minneapolis: You’re getting a Lingerie Football League franchise!

Mar 25, 2011, 5:39 PM EDT


You may recall a while back when the Lingerie Football League attempted to drop a franchise into Oklahoma City, but city leaders rejected the idea (they needed their arena for Satanic church events). Well, OkCity’s loss is Minnesota’s gain, dontcha know. The frilly underwear league signed a deal with Target Center on Thursday night to make Minneapolis the lucky 11th LFL franchise.

“We truly understand the sheer amount of people that are sport fanatics in the greater Twin Cities area,” says league founder Mitchell Mortaza. “We would be foolish not to place a franchise there.”

Yes, they’d be fools not to do it!

The league is scheduling tryouts for mid-April, and is also looking for a coach and an owner. Yeah, that latter thing might be helpful. Cleveland, Las Vegas and Green Bay have also been awarded franchises.

But here’s the best part: the Minneapolis team also needs a name. Any suggestions? Here’s some starters:

Minnesota Meatloaf
Minneapolis Pawlenty of Skin
Lake Wobegon Keillors
Minnesota Nice
Minne Hopeless
Shep Proudfoots
St. Paul Fishnet Stalkings
