Watch Women Play In Their Underwear Wed. 4/22 In Tukwila
For all you (ahem) hardcore football fans out there, this Wednesday, April 22nd will be a big day in South King County â€“ because the northwest’s own Lingerie Football League team the Seattle Mist is holding a free, open-to-the-public (spellcheck alert on that last word!) “Mini-Camp.”
No, the term “Mini” in this case is related not to skirt length, nor trendy cars â€“ it’s an actual “football” camp where women play (as in football silly) in their underwear from 11am-1pm at Tukwila’s Starfire Sports Complex, located at 14800 Starfire Way (map below).
Are you LOLing and wondering WTF the Seattle Mist is? Watch this video, which is in Italian (somehow a very appropriate language for this sport):
The two-hour session is open to the public and admission is free, and here are the details:

INFO: Here’s more info from the Mist website:
Lingerie Football League (or “LFLâ€Ÿ) and Seattle Mist officials are excited to announce the teamâ€Ÿs first-ever Mini-Camp hosted on Wednesday, April 22nd. Fans and media will get their first glimpse at the 2009/2010 Seattle Mist.
The April 22nd Media Day will be the sole open to the public and media event during the 2009 Seattle Mist Mini-Camp, as the team prepares for the upcoming inaugural season of play. Members of the media as well as Seattle Mist fans will have an opportunity to meet the team and watch them go through various offensive, special teams and defensive football drills.
Since the announcement of the Lingerie Football Leagueâ€Ÿs newest expansion team Seattle Mist, the city has been buzzing with fan fare and media attention.
The Mist will feature one of the LFLâ€Ÿs most potent offenses led by strong-armed quarterback Alicia McLauchlin #7 and the power-running of Michelle Selover #1. Head Coach and former Tennessee Titans great Rob Longâ€Ÿs focus will be in developing a dominating defensive unit headed by linebackers Shannon Sypher #12 and Maggie Pearson #9. â€œWe have a lot of naturally gifted athletes on this team with great speed and tenacity, which should make for some compelling football this fall at ShoWare Center. We want our fans to really get behind us.â€
This fall, the term Friday Night Lights will be redefined when the Seattle Mist hit the field as part of â€žLFL, Friday Night Footballâ€Ÿ at ShoWare Center in Kent. Fans arriving early to ShoWare Center will take part in one of the countryâ€Ÿs biggest tailgate festivities complete with Beer Gardens, Video Gaming Lounges, Football Challenges, LIVE Music/DJs, Face-Painting, Bar-B-Que Stations etc.
