      While the B.C. Lions failed in their quest to make it to this year's Grey Cup final, another local football team was victorious in their championship game over the weekend.

      On Saturday (November 17), the B.C. Angels won the inaugural Lingerie Bowl Canada. The home team defeated the Saskatoon Sirens 25-12 to become the 2012 Lingerie Football League Canada champions.

      The match took place at the Abbotsford Entertainment & Sports Centre.

      Really Creepy?

      So where are the pictures of the good Christians groups protesting out front who usually have a lot to say about gay marriage, pride parades and abortion?

      So where are the pictures of those tax groups protesting the use of public money for cultural spending like professional hockey and underwear?

      Oh right...

      into men & women

      Women playing football in lingerie, how hot, now why can't we have a football league with men just wearing, tight underwear or jockstraps, & only tight underwear or jockstraps, that would be so fucking hot :)

      Good story.

      Like any semi-intelligent person, I realize that Lingerie Football was probably not established out of feminist idealism, but these photos reveal the true joy of athletic competition in the faces of the victors. So, extreme cheese factor or no, I salute the champion BC Angels!!!

      The return of Rollerball can't be too far off.
      I tip my hat to the photographer some great shots there.

      Please, Please, Please

      This is an insult to women and football.

      I noticed the top of the article it says "by staff", so does that mean the Straight needed the entire staff to put this "article" together? Slow news day?

      Actually, it's not that "interesting".
      "Staff" is at the top of the piece because this is actually not an article but a presentation of Andrew Chin's photographs, which we are pleased to publish for our readers.

      The few words of introductory copy are there merely to give information about the event, and it wasn't felt that they were deserving of a byline.
