To their surprise, the boys over at It’s Still Football recently found themselves holding press passes for the Arena Bowl. To our surprise, TC and Joe agreed to photograph the prettiest players for our viewing enjoyment. Take it away, guys…
Brett Deitz has already been mentioned as a possible Ladies… favorite [despite his wonky eye seen here...--ed.]. He’s the co-ROY, plays for Tampa Bay, and he brought Tampa Bay from a shitty team to a playoff contender.
Coach Darren Arbet of the San Jose Sabercats is generally a very cool customer.
Mark Grieb, MVP of the Arena Bowl is extremely squinty in person. We prefer to think of it as Laser QB Vision. We have a good serious interview with him… We didn’t ask the good question. We were just there. He’s a smart guy – he has a degree in biochemistry, so I asked why he wasn’t living in a volcano lair someplace, plotting.
Peter Martinez kicks for the Destroyers. He was a good sport.
Matt Nagy was nice to Joe during the interview.
Ben Nelson is from Minnesota, and played for the Vikings briefly. He talked to us for quite a while. Joe has a man-crush because he’s also from Minnesota. [While we have fundamental problems with the pose in this picture, we are equal opportunity oglers here at Ladies..., and the power of a man-crush cannot be denied. --ed.]
David Saunders, Josh Bush, and B.J. Barre are all on the Destroyers, and were having a pretty good time goofing off at media day. A bunch of Destroyers started doing the Gator chomp at Barre (dismissed from OSU) after he got cocky with one of his media day answers.
Jason Shelley also plays WR for the Destroyers, and we tried to get him to trash talk, saying “we’re bloggers, nobody’s going to read this, you can say what you’ve always wanted to say.” He didn’t bite.
No, never a dull moment at the Arena Bowl, particularly when you go autograph hunting:
The comedy of this exchange was when he got done, he was all proud of himself for about 10 seconds, and then said “OH, SHIT: I spelled ‘dreams’ wrong!” and then Charles Frederick made fun of him.
At least he’s pretty, right, girls?
