HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE PFL?

Women
Info about the new Pillow Fighting League
(PFL)



NOT A KIDS SLUMBER PARTY ANYMORE.....





I recently came across this article and had to share it with you all..
It is pillow fighting with attitude. Its called the Pillow Fight League or the PFL.


It may look like a slumber party gone awry, but competitors in this
new sport for women take their battles very seriously. They are
professional pillow fighters!

With stage names like Eiffel Power, Sarah Bellum and Betty Clocker, participants compete in matches with a referee, formal rules, like a 10-point scoring system and a governing body called The Pillow Fight League..

This league was founded two years ago by Stanley Case, a 39 year
old t-shirt printer and musician, who calls himself the Commissioner.
He got the idea after his band was performing at a club and it had
a mock pillow fight as an added attraction. Women from the audience
came forward eagerly to join the battle.The women really got into
it. Case sensed that this could become really popular among the
club scene. He was right. After months of tryouts and training,
the league now has a roster of 25 women fighters.

Matches, usually involving 10 pillow fights, have been staged in
a variety of nightclubs from Toronto to New York City. The bouts are
set at five minutes in length. They can involve anything from the
fighters bashing each other with the pillows to taking each other
to the mat and using the pillow to smother or pin the opponent.
Bouts are won when an opponent gives up, is pinned or if the fight
lasts the full five minutes and is won by a judges decision.

The leagues rules are simple--women only--no lewd behavior, and moves
such as leg drops or submission holds are allowed as long as a pillow
is used. No eye-gouging, biting, scratching, hair pulling or low
blows are allowed.

Case is hoping to land a television deal for the PFL, that allows
it to maintain its competitive spirit. He says he has already turned
down bids that threatened to make the league sleazy rather than
competitive and entertaining.

The pillow fighting women will be on tour in the American Northeast
in April or May.
