This goes against everything I believe in as a Yankees fan. But after researching around my other choices for hot, young, Jewish general managers of baseball teams, he pretty much takes the cake. Night 4 I bring you Theo Epstein.
It’s pretty obvious that we’d have plenty of baseball players to choose from for our Hanukkah Hunks series. That’s why for night 2, I thought I’d toss in a Jewish gold medalist backstroker to honor: Lenny Krayzelburg. More photos to enjoy with your latkes after the break.
Sundown tonight marks the first night of Hanukkah, and we here at Ladies… would like to take the opportunity to recognize some of our favorite Hanukkah-celebrating sports hunks throughout the holiday. Night 1 hottie is after the jump.
It’s that time of year again for the NCAA football boys – the Heisman Trophy will be awarded this coming Saturday, December 12 at 8pm! In between our delicious advent calendar of hotness posts, I bring you our five adorable finalists just announced tonight.
And yes, that’s hottness with a double ‘t’. No, not talking specifically about Perry Fewell, the Bills’ new head coach (though he is pretty damn hot right now). I’m talking first of all about the Bills as a whole yesterday (are we sure that was them out there?!) and about their newest addition on the sidelines: Brian Brohm ♥ Continue reading
What the hell, Bud Adams?
Yep. Giants sucked. Jets sucked. Yankees didn’t do it tonight (Monday). Mets…let’s not go there. Sometimes it’s tough being a New York sports fan. After watching an exciting Game 4 of the World Series (which I’m still holding to my Saturday prediction that the Yankees will take the Phils in 6 and it’s now looking quite possible), I had to reflect back on what a different season my 2 New York baseball teams had. After the jump, the truth – in photos…
The Bills won. The Yankees won. The Sabres have won their last 3 games. What could Buffalita possibly be complaining about this week? I’ll tell you, dear readers. Creepy facial hair is again spreading like a dirty mold across the most beautiful of faces as of late. Maybe it’s because the weather is changing. Maybe it’s because your team has incredibly weird traditions so you do stupid crap like growing your own chin-chilla because it’s the playoffs and you think you’re playing hockey. Whatever it is, the rule of the creeper is dawning…
It’s no secret: your writer is a big Bills fan. While I’m not super proud of the way they’ve been playing as of late, especially not against the Jets yesterday, I can’t act like I’m not excited that they finally won!
In honor of the fact that I endured what felt like winter already to watch this ridiculous display, here is a realistic rather than “reporty” post dedicated to photos and highlights of this, um, “game.” (Please note that the photos are from quite far away, as our seats were up high and out of the wind thankfully, so no good booties this week) Continue reading
Since Monday is almost over and your writer is way under the weather, I’ve decided to go with one of my favorite things to do – CAPTION THAT PHOTO!!
The defending World Series champs just took the NLDS in 4 games moments ago, defeating the Rockies 5-4 after a . This brings to question the possibility of a Mets fan’s worst nightmare: a Yankees vs. Phillies World Series, but it also made for some incredibly interesting photos to caption. Take your pick from either the title pic or the choices after the break in congratulations to the postseason victors and have fun!
Yes, baseball regular season ended. AND the Mets swept in their final 3 (which I was surprised and ecstatic). But yesterday was also a big day in football, and everyone will have their eyes on tonight’s game with two HUGE rivals and one stupid old quarterback tying it all together. But because your dear writer moved this weekend and 1) is stressed for time on a longer post today since she doesn’t have internet at home yet and 2) didn’t get to watch a single second of football yesterday due to the lack of cable as well, here is your roundup. Not Hit and Run style this time.
No, this week’s roundup shall be summarized in photos. Photos of football booties.
It’s no secret: I love Buffalo sports. But that also means that I’m no stranger with disappointment. After what looked like an amazing start last year in winning five of their first six games, the Bills managed to end in disappointment with a 7-9 record overall. It’s way too early to tell now obviously, but after yesterday’s disappointment (with my fantasy league QB against them not to mention, which creates a whole other moral dilemma by itself) it’s hard not to look back to the last three years of 7-9. And after the Sabres building me up just to let me down last year and the Mets breaking my heart year after year lately, you can’t really blame me in my losing of hope. What’s a poor fan to do? Continue reading
In honor of Lady Bee’s love of Jeter (and the fact that she could be witnessing history in person), I’ll be filling in for her today with a topic that is somewhat troubling me and pretty much any other baseball fan that’s been following the Yankees’ most hits record list. As of Wednesday night against Tampa, Derek Jeter has tied the record for the most hits from a Yankee, passing greats Mickey Mantle and Babe, and is now at 2,721 which was Lou Gehrig’s record up until possibly tonight. But how should classic Yankee and Gehrig fans feel about this? Continue reading
So yeah. That happened. The Mets are down 6-0 before they even came up to bat, and they managed to make a decent comeback effort throughout the game. It’s now the 9th inning and it’s 9-6. Pagan is safe at third on a crazy error. Castillo comes up and he’s safe due to another error by the idiot 2nd baseman Bruntlett, and Pagan scores. Now 9-7, Phillies still up. Then comes Daniel Murphy, who safely gets to first. We now have the tying runs on base with NO OUTS. Then my personal favorite Franheart comes up (sarcasm detection by my regular readers). And what does he do, my dear fellow fans? He line drives straight into the hands of Bruntlett (who more than made up for that previous error). Out 1. Bruntlett steps onto the 2nd base bag. Out 2, Castillo had too much of a lead. Murphy’s coming right at him, does a little loop de loop, and probably soils himself as he is tagged for out 3. That’s right. 3 outs, all made by one person. Game over, just like that.
I know it’s just preseason, but come on. Last night, stand-in kicker Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson delivered on an extra point in the 2nd quarter which gave the Bengals that one point edge over the Patriots and eventually led them to a one point victory.
In light of last night’s ridiculousness, I just HAD to post this photo (thanks KJ) and open it up for Write Your Own Caption.
Have at him!
In other words, I hate TO. I do somewhat love to hate him too, so it’s all relatively easy for me. Yes, he’s a great player. Yes, he could really help out the poor Bills. But doesn’t matter – my mind is made up about him and I just plain do NOT like him at ALL. And in light of yesterday’s preseason lack of action, allow me to take a moment to rant now. Continue reading
While I’m not a huge Melky fan and never have been, I am still a Yankees fan and one has to admit that he was mighty impressive yesterday in their 8-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox. After seeing the highlights (because I’d apparently rather spend my Sunday in a muddy park in NJ listening to bands instead of watching my Mets lose and the Yanks finally win), something was brought to my attention which I admittedly never knew had a technical term: the cycle. Continue reading
Yesterday, July 26, 2009, Rickey Henderson (on behalf of Rickey) accepted his induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY. Alongside Jim Rice, the former left fielder of nine different teams with a career spanning 19 years accepted this honor in his swanky custom-made cream suit that he has supposedly had for ten years. For this week’s post, I have decided to honor this great great man with a collection of stats and records (he has many), quotes (he’s said plenty), and photos. Continue reading
So this happened. And it was while I was on my way out the door for a nice weekend out of the city 2 weekends ago. And now my poor boyfriend will not stop being angry about it. Omar, seriously – why??
Author’s note – I had started writing this post last week and decided against it amidst the excitement of the All Star Game, the Home Run Derby, and the Ladies… first live blogging events. But after this weekend with the Mets bombing against Francoeur’s old team and Church’s new team (Atlanta Braves), I had to say something.
While many things in sports occurred this fine holiday weekend including some tragedy (RIP McNair), obviously the record-breaking performance by Swiss gent Roger Federer at this year’s Wimbledon tourney, along with a vindicating answer back from last year’s loss to her sister by Serena Williams were the talk of the water coolers this morning.
I think I have a new girl crush! Leave it to Shaq to feel the need to post about sexy ladies. On his ever so popular twitter, Shaq just posted a picture of the new hot Cavs cheerleader:

After a nice long weekend of babies, dads, and a much quieter weekend sports-wise, I got to thinking about the sports that I admittedly do not pay as much attention to. With the French Open fresh on everyone’s mind and US Open in full (flooded and delayed) swing (update: Tiger unfortunately went down and Lucas Glover won it all), I decided to put a post up to the masses. Let’s review, shall we?
I know, I know. Lame joke AND I’m not writing about the obvious, which is the Lakers’ glorious win and the Penguins amazing victory after 17 Cupless seasons. Stay tuned to the Ladies… later this week for more on that. But being the big baseball headed girl that I am, I have to ask…what the hell happened?
This is somewhat of an extension of the original old favorite regular from the Ladies…: Homer Hotties but with a bit of a twist. I instead chose someone who doesn’t play for my hometown team, but is from my hometown. And with this season of NHL coming to a close, why not highlight someone that if I’m visiting back home upstate, I can’t not hear about. Please direct your attention to Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks.
I suppose if you’re a Red Wings, Magic, Lakers, or Serena Williams fan, then it really wasn’t a disappointment of a weekend at all. But over all, this weekend seemed to be filled with disappointment from all over the world of sports – from a 25 inning game 1 showdown to missing the mark in the NBA finals.
While this will not become a weekly installment from this Buffalo gal, I decided that every once in a while, a noteworthy play from a favorite hottie or a particularly exciting game from the weekend of sports deserves special mention. Naturally for the first installment, I had to choose one of my favorite cuties from one of my teams, and luckily the excitement is brought to you by this past weekend’s Interleague games of the Mets vs. my other NY team’s rival: The Bo Sox.
In light of the Mets’ disappointing loss to the San Fran Giants last night, many are pointing fingers at Pelfrey’s three balks being the reason for the loss after winning the first three games of the series (though the lack of runs certainly didn’t help). If you’re any other average baseball fan, you know exactly what I’m talking about and are probably shaking your head with me. But just in case you happen to be a casual fan and might think a balk is a sound an angry chicken makes, here’s a quick history lesson for you. Continue reading
This weekend surely proved to be a very exciting one in sports, what with all of the finals going on and some serious slugging. One major note to make is that BRETT FAVRE IS REMAINING RETIRED even though the Vikings are still interested, and of course, Manny has apologized to owner of the Dodgers Frank McCourt (next step: apologize to team mates). Here is a quick roundup of this weekend’s big plays, accompanied with the gorgey gents that made things possible… Continue reading
