Even gay men dream of this
There is a league in Toronto that is not playing fair. Oh, I don't mean that they are going around shoving needles in their butts or that they are rubbing Vasolin on their pitching hands. No I mean, there is a group of women who are charging spectators a price to watch them dress up in costumes and have pillow fights! I mean, if the NHL thinks it has problems attracting viewers now, wait until the PFL (Pillow Fight League) goes national and ends up on prime time CBS against Desperate Housewives. Don't think it will happen? Well, you my friend have underestimated the male libido.
This is essentially women in lingerie swinging pillows at one another in a bar. And yes, as the league organizer states "it's not just hot blonds in negligees; the fights are real, and there's some fun to it. I think that's what the appeal is.." Right. I know I go watch women's tennis for Serena Williams powerful backhand.
In an seriousness, this sounds like an absolute blast. Who hasn't dreamed of going to a pillow fighting slumber party? From the looks of things, these are indeed serious women, whose dreams were crushed when Spike TV cut the Roller Derby league.
If the big show comes to town, make sure not to miss it.
The guys think it's for them because we have girls fighting, and the girls think it's for them because they're the ones doing the fighting. Indeed.
