fight like a girl
Straight outta Toronto, and now invading New York City via Brooklyn, the Pillow Fight League brings two thoughts to my mind:

1. The kitschy fighter names/personalities (my favorite is Betty Clock’er, with Ruth Lesley — say it realfast — a close second) makes it obvious that this is a postmodern version of the original bad-girl sporting spectacle, roller derby.

2. You can expect to see PFL matches on Spike TV any day now. That’s if ESPN doesn’t beat them to it (and I wish I were kidding about that second part).
