My weekly "oh my" moment brought to you by...

...the Bikini Hockey League.

One of the first things one teaches in a Sport Sociology course is how to define a sport and the various criteria that have been used at various times in various cultures.
It might be time to add to that conversation about definitions. This league obviously isn't meant to be sport. The tryouts aren't even tryouts. It's a casting call--with no requirement that a potential "player" mention anything about her hockey skills.
And the press release reveals that this is all about creating a reality show--not an actual hockey league.
Sex it up and dumb it down (for audiences) I guess is the motto of this production.
