Angela Rypien is not bashful about her ambitions. That shouldn't be surprising considering her primary job responsibility is, ahem, tossing footballs around in her underwear in front of thousands of fans. She wants to be the best quarterback in lingerie football. She wants to pose in magazines ranging from Sports Illustrated to Vogue. She wants to be a reality TV star and a global icon.

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.

Over the past several weeks, while the NFL has locked out its regular officials, we have gotten to know the NFL's rag-tag group of replacement officials -- and it has been refreshing to learn that they are just like us.

H.L. Mencken wasn't writing about the launch of the Baltimore Charm when he observed that "nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public," but he may as well have been. The Baltimore Charm, the newest entrant into the fledgling Lingerie Football League (league slogan: "true fantasy football") held tryouts at 1st Mariner Arena on Sunday, with women running passing and tackling drills in sports bras and short-shorts — a more modest version of the uniforms they'll get to play in if they make the team.
