The Minnesota Valkrie will drag your soul to hell.
​In the course of just two weeks, over 28,400 Minnesotans weighed in on a matter of vital importance: what to call our brand new Lingerie Football League team.

The people's voices were heard and their will be done. May we present for your approval: The Minnesota Valkyrie.

Late last month, the LFL signed a deal with the Target Center to host a new franchise of the 10-team league. The team will play 7-on-7 full-contact football clad in lacy bras and undies, and glass front helmets.

​The public was invited to vote on the team's new name and at last count, the Minnesota Maidens and Minnesota Vixens were ahead of "Valkyrie." But in an upset win (or maybe because we already have a Minnesota Vixens women's football team?), the name "Valkyrie" pulled ahead and into the end zone.

A Valkyrie, by the by, is a woman from Norse mythology who chose who would die in battle, then ferried their souls to Valhalla. It's also the name of our local women's rugby team, who we're sure are just tickled to death by this (Well, they're the ValkyrieS, these are the Valkyrie. Totally different.)

On top of the fact that it's a hell of a lot brassier than some of the other team names, this opens the door for the 14 amazons to storm onto the field to the terrifying strains of Wagner's "Flight of the Valkyrie." I love the smell of burning lingerie in the morning.

Try-outs are this Saturday at Vadnais Sports Center and are open to the public. The horror . . . the horror . . .

Is there anywhere in particular I can go to sign up for towel/water boy positions? Can I wear my leopard print "banana hammock"? Should I oil myself up for the interview? I glisten in the right light. I had sex ed 1 and 2 in High school, so I feel I am more than qualified. Do you need a "trainer"? I can relieve some of the ladies' stress. No complaints so far...

I think this is really hilarious. Stupid people wanting stupid sports - but are too immature to just go to a strip club.Hopefully, they will demand a new stadium and skin all of your money. A wise man once said, you can't tax the stupid, but you sure can provide them with entertainment...

This is outrageous. The real Valks are the Valkyries women's rugby team. The LFL team needs a name change.

Stupid name, and stupid idea to be wasting time on. There's more important things to worry about, such as getting a stadium deal done for the Vikings. This "team" and league won't last that long.

I like T & A as much as the next guy, but is this a joke?

Why is it "valkyrie" singular? That doesn't make any sense.

Should have gone with Minnesota Milk Maids...

WTF @ Only 2 home games?

"Fans will have only (2) two opportunities to watch the Valkyrie and LFL Football at Target Center with the home opener being Friday, October 14th and home finale on Saturday, November 19th"

Actually, if I become a sports reporter, will I be allowed in the locker room?  Only fair, wouldn't you think?
