Christmas In July

It’s July 25th! What better way to celebrate the (non-existent) holiday of Christmas in July, than with a bunch of hot pictures of smokin’ hot winter sport athletes. All those guys who specialize in heating up the ice and snow are here to cool us all down… or is it heat us all up?

Were you naughty or nice? Check and see what Santa left under your tree…

About Texas Gal

Pitched four years for the Philadelphia Athletics, and then played shortstop for seven years for the Montreal Expos. Taught Rickey Henderson to steal a base. Taught Nolan Ryan to throw a punch. Taught Mickey Mantle to drink a beer. Threw one seven-hitter and seven no-hitters. Wonderboy was my creation, and first Jobu shrine was in my locker. Often called "the next Dustin Pedroia". Always wear high socks and eyeblack. Prefer to slide headfirst.

  1. I miss Jason Arnott. Oh Lord, do I miss him (and Petr Sykora).

    Jeremy Bloom’s V-Cut makes me sweaty…

    Side note: It’s “Christmas in July” at the Somerset Patriots game tonight!

  2. With that Jeremy Bloom ad, you have just about outdone yourself, Texas Gal.

    I wonder if Joey Cheek is sanctimonious about his super-niceness, or if he’s just plain nice.

  3. I was very worried for a second that Jeremy Bloom wasn’t going to be there. You have officially made my day!

  4. When he’s not puffy or drunk off his ass, Bode Miller is teh sex.

    From everything I’ve read about him, Joey Cheek is a genuinely nice guy. The guy won two gold medals and joked about getting rejected by Harvard. That’s pretty cool.

    Pam, it’s Christmas in July at the Phillies game tonight, too. I’ll be there.

  5. When I saw the theme I said to myself, “They better put my husband, Apolo, on there.” You didn’t disappoint and you introduced me to some really good looking guys. (Kris Freeman, damn!)

    This is the greatest post of all time. I am not using hyperbole.

  6. Holy love for Jeremy Bloom. I knew he was hot, but that pic – if I could have a “spank bank” he’d be there.

    Sidenote – must come up with the name of a female version of “spank bank”…

  7. Phew. Well, either way, that was my first cougar moment. I can’t believe the fresh faced teen that hammed it up for a photo with my hockey-playin’ little nephew a couple of years ago…looks…like…that.

  8. Lauren-I quite agree, I hope Bloom actually plays this year. I need some eye candy after the Phillies’ season is over.

    Is it weird that I think his bruises make him hotter?

  9. Dear Jeremy Bloom,

    Thank you for being an Eagle…and I don’t even like football. But if you play this year, sir, I might be forced to start watching. Good LAWD.

    Love,
    CW

    …and a special Christmas in July (I guess technically it’s not Boxing Day in July…) note:
    Dear Ryan Howard,

    YOU are the MAN. NO, seriously…THE MAN. Just next time, do you think you could do it a few innings prior to the FOURTEENTH?! I have to be up at 530 in the morning, see, and had to hear your bomb on the radio, thus continuing my “I’ve never seen a walkoff in person” streak.

    Love,
    CW

    PS–Jimmy Rollins, you, too, are the man.

  10. Clare — I saw on 700level that you were at the game last night. You lucky devil…I tried to go with my dad, but EVERYONE wanted a Cole bobblehead.

  11. I was there, Clare…through the 11th inning. I told my sister if we left early, I’d miss a walkoff, but alas, being a responsible adult won out and all…poo! But yes, I love the Bobble!Hamels.

    Oh my God, did you hear what happened to Utley today?! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

  12. I still stand by the fact that I have no clue when it comes to football. Honestly, when I play Madden, I just pick the prettiest drawn plays and pick that one (yes, I’m THAT girl)

    HOWEVER…*bites lip* DAYNUM @ Jeremy. I’m jealous of the water…I’m jealous of that towel…

    Dear Jeremy,
    Don’t take this the wrong way but…I want to have sex with you.
    Love,
    Monica
