Chick Football

Football gets in touch with its feminine side: The Philadelphia Liberty Belles are one of 10 charter members of the National Women's Football League. The 45-woman team, which plays on high school fields and travels by bus, has romped over its first three opponents in an eight-game schedule that runs from April to June. The players buy their own uniforms, pay their own insurance, and raise money with car washes. And they don't earn a cent, despite their ass kicking performace. So far the Belles have schlacked three opponents by a combined score of 106-6. I've never seen them play, but I imagine it being quite an entertaining experience; not just because its women, but because they're genuinely in love with the game of football. Some day, when and if they become profitable, the league might lose that quality, so I hope to catch a game soon...
