Lingerie Bowl canceled

The Lingerie Bowl has been canceled due to a dispute with the hosts.

The Lingerie Bowl was due to be aired as pay-per-view during Super Bowl halftime but has been shelved due to disputes with the Caliente nudist resort where it was due to be played.

According to league spokesman, Stephon McMillen, "The league will not place our fans, players, staff nor partners in a less then comfortable environment that would ultimately jeopardize the mainstream perception and reputation of the brand that so many have worked diligently over these past five years to build."

Angye Fox, a spokeswoman for Caliente Resorts, issued this statement: "Caliente is a luxury clothing-optional resort. We ran into conflicts with the Lingerie Football League wanting more areas of our resort restricted to clothing required then we could accommodate."

If the Lingerie Football League has such a mainstream reputation, why was the only place they could find to hold the Bowl a clothing-optional resort?

Well I think you know the answer to that!
