The Lingerie Football League is hanging up its garters for the 2012 season.

League spokesman Jim Wallin announced Friday that the LFL will go on hiatus until April 2013 so it can get on a warm-weather schedule in the spring and summer. Until then, players will go on promotional tours in Australia and Asia.

The seven-on-seven female league was created in 2009. Eleven teams played in the 2011 season, which culminated in a third straight championship for the Los Angeles Temptation. But, there I go, acting like the league is about football and not bras and panties and unattached garter clips.

Plans to expand into more U.S. cities and Canada will be explored during the hiatus.
