Forget Hockey!!!

This is the mecca of professional pillow fighting.
Actually, it's the shop of Stacey P. Case. By day, he prints posters and T-shirts. By night, he is commissioner of the Pillow Fight League (PFL). P. Case? Yeah, right.
Is this a sham, pardon the expression?

No. This is for real. Real,live pillow fighting! For bucks and world champion bragging rights! Oh sorry guys. It's also ladies only.

A joke? Not judging by that slugfest on a mat in the middle of the shop. A lanky redhead named Sister Resistor is trying to beat the tattoos off dark, steely Ursula Anvil.
Their weapons are pillows, the kind you used to clobber your kid brother.
But this ain't no slumber party.
Though just practice, Sister Resistor, 32, appears intent on maiming Ms Anvil, 22.

And just for anybody wondering,these are not strippers or ladies of the night. Ursala is a seamstress.
Betty Clocker? "I'm an editor," she says. For a big financial wire service. She juggles first-quarter results with training for her bout on Tuesday against rookie Layna Beaton.

And brand newcomer Melissa Biscardi? "I start my PhD in September. I'm a registered nurse."
Perfect. Pro pillow fighting is no cushiony game.
A nurse will come in handy.

And don't laugh. There have enquries from Australia,Germany,Japan and Ireland about expanding the PFL to those countries. New York State has already banned it! Something about only being able to use your hands to fight with in state sanctioned bouts.

Just something to think about as you cuddle up with that pillow tonight.
