On the Beat with the Chicago Bliss

Last Saturday,'s Scott Beatty and I had a "Bliss"ful experience at the Sports Collectibles Show in Rosemont.  We met and interviewed four players from the Chicago Bliss.
The Bliss play in the Legends Football League (formerly the Lingerie Football League).  The LFL has a new name and a new direction, concentrating on the football and athletic aspect.  The lingerie has been replaced by uniforms more suitable for football playing.  The LFL is aiming for real games, instead of simply presenting eye-candy playing football.
While the emphasis is clearly on football, the Bliss players we met certainly are attractive, although I think they would take umbrage at being called eye-candy, instead of football players.  From what we learned through the interviews, the athletic abilities and accomplishments of these ladies earned them the right to be called players.
The Bliss play their home games at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates.  Their season opener is Friday, April 19 against the Los Angeles Temptation.  On Friday, May 10, they host the Las Vegas Sin.  Their final two games are road games on Friday, July 26 at Green Bay and Saturday August, 10 at Minnesota.
Hopefully, this is just the first bit of coverage of the Bliss this season.  We will be talking to more players as the season develops.
After you watch the videos, head over to and the Chicago Bliss Facebook page and follow the Bliss on twitter.
