Super Sunday just got a little more tame, and the only winner here is Tom Petty. It’s with regret that LIO passes along the news that the staple of the biggest day in sports is no more. Lingerie Bowl V has been canceled.
“Unfortunately we wasted too much time in Scottsdale in trying to attain a permit thus limiting our possibilities in neighboring cities,” said Horizon Productions spokesman Chris Martin, who had no comment on the city’s handling of the application.So if you’re looking for scantily clad women during this year’s halftime, you’ll have to look elsewhere...perhaps your own living room?
This year’s cancellation means that the last two Lingerie Bowls have been cancelled. Last year’s cancellation was blamed on the fact that they were trying to switch from pay-per-view to cable TV. But fear not, true lovers of sport. Lingerie Bowl VI really will happen. Or so says its organizers, who already claim to have the proper permits for next year’s match in Tampa. Let the countdown begin!
