The Minnesota Valkrie will drag your soul to hell.

​In the course of just two weeks, over 28,400 Minnesotans weighed in on a matter of vital importance: what to call our brand new Lingerie Football League team.

The people’s voices were heard and their will be done. May we present for your approval: The Minnesota Valkyrie.

Late last month, the LFL signed a deal with the Target Center to host a new franchise of the 10-team league. The team will play 7-on-7 full-contact football clad in lacy bras and undies, and glass front helmets.

​The public was invited to vote on the team’s new name and at last count, the Minnesota Maidens and Minnesota Vixens were ahead of "Valkyrie." But in an upset win (or maybe because we already have a Minnesota Vixens women’s football team?), the name "Valkyrie" pulled ahead and into the end zone.

A Valkyrie, by the by, is a woman from Norse mythology who chose who would die in battle, then ferried their souls to Valhalla. It’s also the name of our local women’s rugby team, who we’re sure are just tickled to death by this (Well, they’re the ValkyrieS, these are the Valkyrie. Totally different.)

On top of the fact that it’s a hell of a lot brassier than some of the other team names, this opens the door for the 14 amazons to storm onto the field to the terrifying strains of Wagner’s "Flight of the Valkyrie." I love the smell of burning lingerie in the morning.

Try-outs are this Saturday at Vadnais Sports Center and are open to the public. The horror . . . the horror . . .
