Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Ah, America. A place where logic and business sense never stand in the way of a shaky idea. In this case, it's the idea of a few local men, who are hoping to capitalize on the horny violent psyche of the Bored American Male by combining two of their loves: half-naked women and bad football.

On Saturday, Foxxy Football, a budding Denver football organization, staged one of a handful of training camps it'll hold this fall, hoping to have a league running by this winter. The women will play tackle football -- in shoulder pads and little else other than lingerie. The camp, at a park near 81st and Federal, attracted several young women looking for... well, we're not sure.
