Chances are you’ll be reading this in 2009. That’s okay. It’s a holiday and you were preparing yourself for the New Year’s Eve celebrations. But if you are reading this in 2008 then let’s go through a review of what happened this year. Specifically what happened every Wednesday of this year. Yes, we’re going to be taking a look back at the Hump Day Hotties that have graced our blog in the ’08. Why? Because how could you not want to take a trip down memory lane and remember Ryan Lochte?
So let’s go back through the year that was and enjoy our hotties one more time before we sing “Auld Lang Syne.” And if you’re reading this in 2009, remember when Lochte was so smoking in 2008 he made the Ladies… HDH? Yeah, that was awesome.
So, I’ve been quite the MIA lady for the past few weeks. I’ve been doing this, and this, and then I was at the rally for this guy, but I am back and looking to share the team who has been making me love them and hate them for the past few months. They are not only my team, but the favorite team of the president-elect. Bear down, Chicago Bears!
As luck would have it, I get to be the person who puts together our 1,000 post — even though, as the newest Lady, I’ve probably accounted for the smallest share of those 1,000. I feel like I should be giving a little speech, but you don’t really want to hear (or read) a speech, do you? You want to see our overall number one hottie.
When we started this countdown, each Lady was pretty much given free reign to pick whoever she wanted for her individual list, as I’m sure you noticed. The one rule we agreed on was that the overall number one hottie would be someone who wasn’t on any of the individual lists. If we hadn’t had that rule, you would have seen this particular gentleman’s picture at least four times in the past two weeks. He is well-loved in this corner of the Internet.
And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for, presenting the Ladies Ultimate Hottie …. Continue reading →
It's a pinata, because it's a celebration of hotness. Go ahead, take a whack (or something less suggestive!)
Here they are. Each Ladies… number 1 personal pick. Tomorrow will be our group overall, but these gentlemen are tops in each of our individual books. They are beautiful. They are sentimental. They are MEN. And we love them. We hope you do too!
Welcome to door number three. I promise you'll be happy you opened it.
Wow, so many days of hotties! The best part about all this, other than sharing my fave men with the world, is getting to see what my fellow Ladies… are into. I must admit, I’ve been introduced to quite a few cuties I didn’t know before! So here are the Ladies… picks for their number 3 perfect 10. Please enjoy!
We’re into the Ladies… top 4 perfect 10s and we’ve got some bona fide hotties today.
Fernando Torres – He is so stinking pretty. He recently cut his hair, which is clearly news because his hair is one of his best features. I would also count his freckles, his thighs, his abs and his smile among my other faves. He’s currently injured and has to sit out for another few weeks due to a hamstring injury. (Nando, if you need someone to massage the afflicted area, PLEASE feel free to give me a call…) Some people can’t get on board the Nando-train because of his adorable baby-face. Something about looking too young… well I don’t mind them a little young, and the fact that he’s actually older than me (he’ll be 25 in March) should help to quell some of those pedophile fears.
If our favorite athletes were made up of a scent what would it be? I once told someone (and she agreed) that one of my absolute favs (who’ll come later on this list) probably smells like roses and lilacs. I would like to think that they would smell as good as Chanel No. 5, only 10x better. Oh, and the fragrance would be for women, obviously. Yep. Because who likes musky scents for men? Nobody. So yeah, hot athletes smell like all the greatest perfumes out there. And none of that sweaty mess after they actually play their sport.
I can dream right? And I’m all over the place. But whatevs. Our fifth hottest men are after the jump.
Can you believe all the hotness we’ve seen this week? And we aren’t even halfway through our lists yet!
A lot of people consider seven to be a lucky number (for the record, it’s not lucky for me, although fourteen is my lucky number so maybe it’s half lucky). I’m not sure whether being number seven on our respective lists means good luck is on the way for these particular athletes, but I know I feel luckier for getting to look at them.
Ahhh, Crazy 8s. Now there’s a card game I feel like I should know how to play, but I’m pretty sure I only played once when my grandma wanted to teach me, but I would rather have played Nertz so I phoned it in during a hand of Crazy 8s and then totally forgot how to play. But this picture makes it look so ZANY.
Ahem. Anyway, our countown of ridiculously hot hotties is really hitting its sexy stride. A lot of you commenters have wondered how our picks can get any hotter than the 11s, 10s, and 9s we’ve already posted. Let me assure you, careful consideration and a lot of research went in to choosing and ranking our hotties, so stick with us even if we’ve already featured your favorite. You might discover some new meat people!
Does anybody else remember this show? It was this group of (wait for it) nine people who were in a bank during a robbery. I faintly remember seeing an episode or two and recognizing that guy from “Party of Five,” even though I never watched that show. I kinda wished it had more episodes during it’s run because when ABC canceled it the show was getting good.
Too bad the networks don’t come up with a show about the Ladies… #9 hotties. That show would never get canceled. Hey networks, you’re welcome. I expect to be compensated properly. Anyway, the Ladies… top nine guys are after the jump. They just keep getting better and better.
The Ladies are coming upon their 1000th post as a blog. To commemorate the occasion, we are counting down 9 Ladies’ Top 11 Perfect 10s, culminating in one glorious post of a unanimous #1 overall pick. (Because 100 perfect 10s equal 1000… see what we did there?) Today I bring you the Ladies’ #11s…
Awww, what a cutie.
Games Mistress Darelle Revis – Darelle’s a rookie, but between his excellent defensive play and his hotness, he’s moving into the running for my all time favorite Jet defender. (Granted, given the Jet defenses of the recent past, this is not that hard.) Also, he looks really good in green — which just makes it sad that he’s had to wear drab blue and gold the last couple of games.
Check out the Nebraska cheerleader smiling at the Mizzou touchdown.
This past weekend, I roadtripped to Lincoln, Ne. to see my beloved Missouri Tigers play the Nebraska Cornhuskers. We hadn’t won in Lincoln since 1978. Going into the game, we were ranked 4th, so we also had high hopes that the streak would be broken. My Tigers broke the streak and broke it well, winning 52-17. Even better, I ran into my fellow Lady, Miss Minda, a Nebraska gal.

October is my favorite sports month of the year, mainly for two reasons. We’ll talk about the second one next week. This week, I switched days with SA so I could start October off right: talking about postseason baseball.
This is the first time in many seasons I have not had a clear favorite in either league. I kind of think people are forgetting about the Angels, though, just because they clinched their division ages ago. So my picks for the postseason are: Continue reading →
I have a few big sporting events coming up. As you may have heard, my Cubs are in the playoffs. Also, I am roadtripping to see my Missouri Tigers take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers in Lincoln. Obviously, I need to be dressed well, whether I’m sitting in the last row of Memorial Stadium — yes, my seats are in the last row — or on my couch, stressing through a Cubs game. Join me to shop after the jump.
During the Ladies… fantasy football draft, my computer went a little wonky, and froze right after my first pick. By the time I got everything working again, the computer had autodrafted Willie Parker for me. I didn’t want Willie Parker. No reason, really, it was more that I just wasn’t feelin’ it. Judging by his first two weeks (243 yds, 3 TDs), I was wrong. I’m sorry Willie. Please consider this collection of your hotness an official apology, and take me back with open arms.
I was born into a Cubs family, and have been a Cubs fan since I donned my first Jody Davis jersey at age 4. I have been through many ups and downs with my team, but one thing I have not watched them do (in addition to winning a World Series) is throw a no-hitter. My wait is over. Carlos Zambrano just threw a no-hitter — the first Cubbie no-hitter since Milt Pappas in 1972. Congrats to Big Z, and thank you for letting me witness it.
During the Bears win over the Colts on Sunday night, my beloved Bears scored by a safety. The safety is, without question, my favorite way to score. I love defense, and the safety is the only way for the defense to give the team some points doing what they do best — stuffing the offense. Of course, Lance Briggs scored a TD on a Marvin Harrison fumble, but that was imitating the offense, not laying people out and getting points for it. This made me think about my other favorite ways to win/score …
When I mention my love of MMA to most non-fight friends know only one fighter: Chuck Liddell. It doesn’t matter that he has lost three of his last four fights. Maybe it’s his acting “career,” the fact that he briefly dated Willa Ford before she married Mike Modano, or his sweet tattoo. Still, people know him, so it’s not great for the UFC that their best known fighter was KO’ed on Saturday night. So Chuck, here is my plea to you: please retire.
Even if you don't know the UFC, you know Chuck Liddell.
Note: This is La M. Alana, posting on behalf of our lovely Chitown Chick. She’s without internet at the moment, but she’ll be back later to edit in some more hotties. Enjoy!
Reading through much of the pre-season press for college football, the Big 12 did not receive nearly enough. People were high on the Big Ten, SEC and even ACC (ha!). Sure, Missouri (WOOT) and Oklahoma got some ink, but overall, the Big 12 was ignored. I am here to rectify that, and spread love from Ames all the way down to Austin. First stop, Columbia, Mo., home of Shiloh, the columns and a wonderful place known as Tropical Liquers.
This week’s Waxing Off topic at Deadspin was… disturbing. And gross. And demeaning to the women asked to write about it. If you didn’t read it, here’s the email sent to the women asked to contribute:
Michael Phelps Slash Fiction.
The inspiration for this comes from two sources. First, this post, which is pure nightmare fuel. Then there’s this, about how Phelps is being pursued by Lindsay Lohan (equally terrifying). We’d like to follow things to their logical conclusion, and figure that you guys would be the best to do that. Make it read like an excerpt from a steamy, filthy book. Put Michael Phelps in the situation of your choosing … male on male, male on female, Phelps on llama … the aristocrats! Nothing is too over-the-top or depraved; it’s slash fiction. Let ‘er rip. Keep to 250-350 words, if possible. And don’t forget the short graph at the end about yourself, where you can plug your site and/or projects if you wish.
When deciding on a hump day hottie, I seriously had a hard time choosing. I said to myself, though kind of out loud, there are so many hot men in the Olympics! So today, there is no rhyme or reason. Some are winners, some are losers. The only connective thread among these men is that they are Olympians, and they are hot.
Last night, my sister called me from work to ask the score of the Cubs game. Ummmm … wellllll, oh wait! I got a text saying the game was postponed. She asked me if they were still running the rain delay programming, and I scrambled to see what channel they were on. I didn’t even know the channel! You see, like the other Ladies, I have been immersed in the Olympics. Seriously immersed in the Olympics. Having dreams about the Olympics. So, though I’m not watching you, I still got nuthin’ but love for ya, baseball. After the jump, a few reminders on why I continue to love America’s pastime.
Ladies… is a global community, dedicated to the ogling of hotties. Though we spend most of our time focused on American hotness, when given the chance, we like to show our ability to check out international hotties. Here is a look at some of the hotness that will be competing in Beijing over the next two weeks. In the words of Morgan Freeman, go world.
Who wants Chitown Chick? This guy!
Mijain Lopez, Greco-Roman wrestler, 120 kg, Cuba: Lopez is the reigning world champ and odds-on favorite to win gold in Beijing. Also, his arms are hot.
Today, I accompanied my sister, brother-in-law and nephew to Bourbonnais, Ill., for Chicago Bears training camp. Being there reaffirmed one of my strongest beliefs: nothing is hotter than a football player in pads. I also learned that is much harder to get an autograph than you would think. (They weren’t for me – they’re for my nephew!)
