The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Nor will there be any padding jokes

Are you ready for some football?

Not me. On the other hand, a lot of it goes on during the summer, and the Oklahoma City Lightning of the National Women's Football Association, 8-0 in the regular season and champions of the South Conference, is headed for Louisville for tomorrow's NWFA title game against the fearsome Detroit Demolition, likewise 8-0 and champions of the North.

Okay, it's not just the NWFA title game. It's the Dickens Energy Cider Women's Pro Football Championship Presented by Progressive Medical Rehabilitation Group. Previous editions have drawn over 5000 fans.

And the NWFA has pushed the envelope for team names as well: the league boasts D. C. Divas, Connecticut Crush (now that sounds dangerous), and the ever-delightful Erie Illusion.
