The Toledo Spitfire vs. The Pittsburgh Passion

I am a bit disappointed in myself that I have never heard of the Pittsburgh Passion until today. I am a pretty informed Burgher so it surprised me that something this cool hasn’t entered my radar until now.

What is the Pittsburgh Passion? Surprisingly, considering the prolific porn stars that are born here, it has nothing to do with sex or porn.

The Pittsburgh Passion is the local franchise team for the National Women’s Football Association (NWFA), and when they say “football” they do NOT mean flag football or nerf football. They mean FOOTBALL (read that word with a growl and make your lips do that snarl thing . . . . there ya go!)

Anyway, the Pittsburgh Passion are a full contact football team, and I find that very cool because I know for a fact there is NO WAY I could play full contact football. I see a large woman running at me with the damning fire of a thousand rabid devils raging in her eyes, I pretty much pop the ball in the air and run for my life while making a noise that kind of sounds like what I bet Paris Hilton sounds like when she sees a spider.

Some awesome things:

1. This chick is a lawyer, and a running back.
2. Most of them look like soccer-moms. Soccer-moms that could kick your ass.
3. They have a dance team!
4. The Toledo team is the Toledo Spitfire. Heh.

Very cool. I may have to check out one of those games come spring. Anybody up for tailgating at a Pittsburgh Passion game?

    A few of them work out at X Shadyside…

    JoJo Warner, #58? actually owns the place.

    I’ve seen a few of them leg press over 1,000 lbs. They are some seriously scary women…

    You know.. the type inclined to raping the guy….

    Wow—I was way too distracted by the braids and ballcap comment from the earlier post, that is until that last sentence of yours, Sloan.
