Victoria's Secret has enraged Louisiana's female football fans—reputedly some of the most intense around—by excluding the New Orleans Saints from its Pink NFL lineup, Advertising Age reports. Not only are the defending Super Bowl champs missing, but the line does include the Boston Red Sox, which was not a football team when last we checked. "Was everyone at Victoria's Secret asleep that day?" one Saints fan asked.

"I would probably max out my VS credit card on undies, bras, and pj's if they had cute fleurs de lis, Gumbos or Sir Saints on them," another fan reported. Victoria's Secret "obviously didn't do any kind of market research on which female fans would spend the most on football paraphernalia," another foiled consumer lamented. This is clearly an opportunity for the Lingerie Football League; for more info on that brainstorm, click here.
