It’s Week 8 of the NFL, readers! I was going to choose a picture of our favourite douchewaffle in celebration of his upcoming visit to Lambeau, when I found…this. It’s a couple of weeks old, but hey, you need something to do before donning your Balloon Boy outfit to go pumpkin sacrificing. Happy weekend!
Good morning. I think my Los Angeles time zone just kicked your ass. And hey, you can stop making fun of my headline now, because I do actually speak French.
You can also stop making fun of it because you’re going to be too in awe of what inspired it to form coherent sentences. Strap your jaw closed so you don’t drool on your keyboard, and read on past this almost totally unrelated photo of Brett Cecil.
9 IP, 7 H, 1 BB, 14 SO, .378 WPA, 88-133 pitches-strikes. Observe.

That is all.
No, that’s not like a G-spot. And it’s not Dudley Moore chasing Bo Derek, either. Follow me after the jump to check out the Ladies…’ #10 picks for their hottest sports players.
You may have noticed our new banner. This is in honor of my winning the Home Run Derby Contest. Each Lady picked a guy to root for and I picked Justin Morneau. My prize was that after the Olympics were over, I got to pick my banner. As you can see, I’ve chosen Albert Pujols, Scott Rolen and Rick Ankiel. Of course, since we just dropped to 6.5 out of the Wild Card, my Banner Mojo might be a moot point, but here it is anyway. And in honor of my real sports crushes, I’ve polled some of my favorite writers to find out about their Man Crushes.
JEFF ROSENFIELD, Bugs & Cranks
For the record, my man-crush is Jacoby Ellsbury. He’s young (which I’m not), fast (ditto), multi-talented and good-looking. I guess two out of four ain’t bad!
