    Lingerie Bowl canceled over dispute with Caliente nudist resort


    By Emily Nipps, Times Staff Writer
    In Print: Tuesday, January 27, 2009

    LAND O'LAKES — It was supposed to be the Lingerie Bowl, not the naked bowl.

    Now the whole thing has been canceled.

    Citing conflicts with the hosting Caliente nudist resort over a "clothing mandate" that bowl organizers say was agreed upon, the Lingerie Football League is throwing in the towel. A league spokesman said holding and broadcasting the game in the nude or around nude people was not what the players or league had in mind.

    You've got to believe the assigning editor has a sense of humor. I would think by now Emily does.
