Lingerie…. Football, That Is

Okay, okay!  I know you are wondering if I went for it this past Saturday and tried out for the Los Angeles Temptation (the LA team in the Lingerie Football League) at their open tryouts.  I expressed my concerns (as to whether they might just laugh and tell me to go home, etc.) in my last post, “Lingerie Football League… To Tryout or Not.”  And the answer is…..

I did it.  Yep!

I went on Saturday, with borrowed cleats that were a half size too small (ouch), got in line, got my number (#111), and did what I could.  Here are my quick notes on the day, and I’ll let you get straight to the video:

  1. There were about 130 girls I believe – all around the average age of 22.
  2. There were some exceptional athletes, some of them returning players from last year (#112, Nikki, actually played four games last year for the LA Temptation, but had to drop out early).
  3. Because the league is new, and continues to gain momentum and recognition and respect, the bar is raised every year on the athletic talent they expect and recruit – so even the current team members have to try out again – even though the current team members won their Superbowl.
  4. It’s tough to sprint in cleats (note to self for next time), especially a half size too small, and on uneven grass.  HA!
  5. They watched the girls throughout the day, and if they were not up to par, they tapped them out and sent them home.
  6. I did not get tapped.  Me and about 64 other girls didn’t get tapped. HA!
  7. The plan is for the league and team to go back, review everyone’s scores and probably their looks, and choose TEN girls from those who remained, to go on to the next level.
  8. I am sure I was the oldest one there, but I didn’t feel like it.  I felt really great, and just finishing the day without being cut made me very proud of myself — almost unbearable to live with – mwaaah ha ha haaaaa.
  9. My man, coach and FOOTBALL mentor (since I’d never really even tried to throw or catch a football, nor did I know anything about the drills, etc… until just last week), was there every step of the way, cheering, photographing and taking video for all of you to see.

So without further delay, enjoy this little montage in honor of my tryout.  After I finished editing it, and posted it to Youtube, I thought perhaps it looked a bit over-the-top.  You know?  Like, all-about-MEEEEEE?  And I suppose it probably does.  But you know what?  TOUGH TOAST.  I am the one who’s banged up here.  I think we can let this one slide.  HA!

Note:  In the closing credits, I called myself “Tryer-Outer #1” because I was the first one to show up on the video… that’s usually how it’s done…  I didn’t do it in reference, obviously, to the number I was assigned for that day.

So there you have it!  My big day!  The best news is, if I really want to seriously train and tryout again, with better speed, agility, etc… I will have another chance right before training camp in late July or August!  Yayyyyy!!

Have a fantastic week you sporto’s out there. Go get some exercise!

Love you people!! Mmmmmmmmpppphhhuuuuhhhhhh!!!

Ms. Cheevious is the alter-ego of Lisa Jey Davis (former publicist, and television talent manager, current award-winning writer & author, & health and fitness pro). Though Ms. Cheevious has become known for humor via the blog and social media, offering a lighter and brighter look at life… the blog was originally a precursor to Lisa Jey's long overdue book "Ms. Cheevious in Hollywood" which offers a fabulous, funny peek into what really goes on behind the scenes in Hollywood… a Hollywood with Lisa Jey and her funny “serendipities” in it. Think Lucille Ball meets Chelsea Handler meets the girl next door (with a little chocolate and vodka). It depicts with hilarity the innocent mistakes Lisa Jey made when launched back into the big, bad single jungle, as an unassuming single-mother in the City of Angels. It’s also about the beautiful, interesting life she led while her loving, incredible sons kept her grounded and sane amid fantastic events, new friends, parties and field trips. It also shows the turmoil and heartbreak that comes with dating and single mom life. All blog content © 2015 Ms. Cheevious aka Lisa Jey Davis
