Pittsburgh Passion not interested in flowers

Quick, which Pittsburgh pro football team enjoyed an undefeated season in 2007? It sure wasn’t the Steelers. It was the Pittsburgh Passion, who went 12-0 in the Independent Women’s Football League and won a championship. Now they’ve got a DM and bus-shelter campaign from Garrison Hughes. This headline, in flowing script, reads, “We celebrate the delicate flower that is woman.” Followed by: “As well as the beauty of one delicate flower drilling the other delicate flower into the ground.” A second ad begins: “A woman’s hand can heal, teach, inspire and comfort,” then concludes, “It can also deliver a wicked head-slap when the ref’s not looking.” Steelers suck. Go Passion!
