The Legends Football League, perhaps better known by its descriptive former name, the Lingerie Football League, appears to have played its last game at the Baltimore Arena. This Saturday's scheduled Baltimore Charm home game against the Atlanta Steam has been canceled, with both the Arena and the league agreeing the main culprit was low ticket sales. LFL officials, however, also took a swipe at the arena, where the team's home games have been played the past four seasons. A statement emailed by Courtney Gifford, the league's marketing manager, blamed "the costly and in most cases unnecessary union fees as well as inflated arena rental fee, [that]

The women trying out for the new Lingerie Football League team coming to Baltimore later this year wore training gear that bared midriffs and cleavage, and that seemed way too skimpy for a workout. But the self-described "girly girls" — most in full makeup as well — trained like guys on the artificial turf field at 1st Mariner Arena where the tryouts were held. They ran the 40-yard dash and tackled a training bag to the ground. They ran and caught a football in a running-back drill before ramming their bodies into two training bags — some so hard they were thrown to the ground.

At the recent tryouts for the Baltimore Charm of the Lingerie Football League in Frederick about 100 women showed up, a team spokesperson said. Tryouts tested female athletes in various football drills, including shuttles, 40-yard dash, read and recognition and various football challenges including tackling, receiving and passing. They also took a psychological interview. About 40 athletes from the tryout will be invited to compete at a minicamp in April. If they last beyond minicamp, they will be among 30 players invited to training camp to compete for the final roster of 20 players.

Fell's Point Fun Festival For the 44th year, Fells Point will put its best foot forward for the annual festival, a chance for some to rediscover the many charms of Charm City's original port, for others to finally find out what all the fuss is about in this most bohemian of Baltimore's neighborhoods. Originally envisioned as a way to raise money and awareness, at a time when Fells Point was threatened with demolition in the name of highway construction, the festival has become the unofficial kick-off to fall in Baltimore.

Maestro Mahler, Meet Dr. Freud Here's one of those meetings where you just wish you could have been a fly on the wall: In 1910, the great conductor and composer Gustav Mahler met with the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud. What was said wasn't recorded; the media was nowhere around. But Mahler, who was suffering from severe depression at the time, later praised their "interesting discussion. " Saturday at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, led by Marin Alsop, presents a words-and-music re-creation of their meeting, through selections from Mahler's symphonies and songs.

John Bernstein never had trouble keeping track of what sport his daughter was competing in or the team on which she was playing. Ida Bernstein can't make the same claim for what she jokingly calls her "athletically confused career. " Ever since she graduated from Dulaney High more than a decade ago and was recruited to play soccer and run track at Syracuse, Bernstein's life on and off the field has been something of a blur. It seems fitting, since one of the objectives for the now 28-year-old Bernstein is moving quite fast in her current passions - bobsled and rugby.

The sales force for the port of Baltimore travels the country and the world, looking for business. It could be farm equipment manufactured in the Midwest on its way to Australia or furniture coming from South America or Alabama-built Hondas headed for Russian dealerships or outdoors gear ordered by U.S. retailers. "We want it," said Richard Powers, director of trade development. Baltimore's sales plan, formed several years ago, targets autos, containers, farm and construction equipment, forest products and passenger cruises.

It didn't take Canadian seaman Richard Thompson long to get quite a bit of Baltimore under his shiny gold belt. Tapas at Harborplace. Shopping for sunglasses. And a beery romp with some American sailors at Power Plant Live that left him with a different sort of souvenir. "It was a mechanical bull," said the crewman from the frigate Ville de Quebec, pointing to a fresh bruise on his lip. "In case you're wondering.

Baltimore Charm player Kelly Campbell travels frequently in her dual role as a defensive back and marketing manager of the city's all-female Lingerie Football League team. Campbell was nominated this year for the league's award for most improved player, as well as for its Mortaza Award, honoring a player's efforts on and off the field. Campbell says she prefers vacations at beaches, where she can enjoy the activities she doesn't have time for during the football season. With Valentine's Day on the horizon, Campbell, 24, reveals to us her favorite and most romantic getaway — which would also be her ideal spot to receive a proposal.
