We watched Michael Phelps win eight gold medals in Beijing, Usain Bolt smile and dance his way to world records like some sort of superhuman, a Superbowl that gave us one of the biggest upsets of recent memory, the best Wimbledon final of all time (yeah, I said it!), and Spain win Euro.
Yes, this year definitely gave Ladies… lots to whine/gloat/gasp/talk about, but aren’t you curious…
What were our absolute favourite sports moments of 2008?
If you don’t celebrate Christmas, don’t sweat it. You can still enjoy this post. If you do celebrate Christmas, have a merry one!
Earlier this year, our little site celebrated its 1000th post by highlighting each of our favorite hotties. Now, in the spirit of the holidays, it’s time for our hotties to give back. Do your eyeballs a favor and enjoy the Ladies…’ stocking stuffers after the jump. Continue reading →
Does he look like a douche? Yes. Would I? Also yes.
So, in a five player deal earlier this week, two of my personal favorite hotties, Boris Diaw and Raja Bell, got traded to the Bobcats for DILF Jason Richardson. (Don’t judge me. He’s J-Rich, for god’s sake.) Unfortunately for the hotness/goodness-ratio theory, this will probably make the Suns a better team; neither Boris nor Raja are fitting in under the new Suns regime, and besides which, Boris hasn’t particularly been any good since 2006 at the latest.But, who cares? They’re pretty.
Or, “Six ‘Score’s would just have been excessive.”
The delight! The deltoids!
It’s been an exciting season already in the NBA, and it only started a couple weeks ago. Chauncey and Rip and Tayshaun had manly crying time, Dwight scored a triple double (with blocks!), the Hawks were undefeated, and the Rockets and the Suns got in a huge fistfight that did not involve Ron Artest, among others. The last week’s biggest headlines – illustrated, naturally – are just a jump away.
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 →
(Yes, this is the 999th post – expect the 1000th post, featuring our collective number one hottie (can you guess who it is?) in the afternoon.)
Ladies and gentlemen – especially ladies… – I present the final part of our Massive NBA Preview In Pictures: two divisions per week, ten teams every Friday until the season starts at the end of this month. What teams will be good, what teams will do badly, and what hotties you should keep an eye out for: this preview answers all your questions. The divisions are chosen mostly by which teams I have enough pictures for by Friday. This week: the Atlantic division, featuring the Boston Celtics, the Raptors, and some bad large-market teams; and the Northwest division, featuring the Blazers, Nuggets, Jazz, and the eviscerated remnants of Seattle’s collective basketball-fan psyche. On to the hot basketball players!
Kevin Garnett loves the smell of napalm in the morning.
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.
We hope you’re enjoying our countdown. We’re only halfway done! There are so many hotties yet to come, ladies. Here we go with the sixes! Woot woot.
I'd walk down his street. Or something.
Huston Street – You know that whole “a picture is worth a thousand words” saying? Well, I’m pretty sure all those words when talking about Street are “oh my God, so hot.” Not necessarily in that order mind you (it’s hard to speak coherently when looking at him), but those are the words.
We now interrupt your previously scheduled 100 Hotties entertainment to bring you some even more previously scheduled entertainment. This is the second part of the Massive NBA Preview in Pictures: two divisions per week, ten teams every Friday until the season starts at the end of this month. What teams will be good, what teams will do badly, and what hotties you should keep an eye out for: this preview answers all your questions. The divisions are chosen mostly by which teams I have enough pictures for by Friday. This week: the Southeast division, featuring the Heat, the Magic, the and the Wizards, and the Southwest division, featuring the Hornets, Rockets and Spurs.
How will the Hawks do this season? More importantly, how much hotter can Al Horford possibly get?
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.
This is the first part of the Massive NBA Preview in Pictures: two divisions per week, ten teams every Friday until the season starts at the end of this month. What teams will be good, what teams will do badly, and what hotties you should keep an eye out for: this preview answers all your questions. The divisions are chosen mostly by which teams I have enough pictures for by Friday. This week: the Central division, featuring the Pistons, Bulls, and Cavaliers, and the Pacific division, featuring the Suns, Lakers and Warriors.
Will anyone take the Angels out? (Source: AP/Mark Avery)
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 was under the impression that linebackers were, you know, rather lumpy. Not pretty, or at least not appealing to my own sensibilities. Then this cat from USC started showing up in ads and on my television.
Why was I not made aware of this sooner?
More Rey, and other hottie prospects for next year’s NFL and NBA drafts, after the jump.
The Ladies… had our Fantasy Football draft Wednesday night, and I’m in the midst of what Basketbawful calls drafterglow.. I feel like I have an awesome team, I’m going to smash everybody, and end the season being carried out on everyone’s shoulders or something ridiculous like that. However, I had three players play yesterday – Chris Cooley, Ahmad Bradshaw, and Amani Toomer – and got not a single point from them. Nineteen yards between the three of them! Screw those guys.
But still, I’m optimistic. I’ve got some very good big name players, some players I was hoping to get, and a pretty hot team, considering. And I got this guy here:
One of the best parts of being a sports fan is the superstitions we come up with. How so? Because where else in life can you completely rationalize some of the crazy stuff we do in the name of “not jinxing” our teams? And it just doesn’t work in other parts of life. There aren’t too many sales associates that won’t say the name of the city they’re in so they won’t jinx that next sale.
Or something. I don’t think that analogy works, but you know where I was going with it.
Anyway, superstitions are fun. They make all our crazy behavior during games normal. And those among us without a silly superstition about their favorite baseball or hockey team? They’re the crazy ones.
So I asked the Ladies… what are some of the superstitions they have for their favorite teams. Add yours in the comments. Continue reading →
I had a busy week, y’all, and I’m tired. It was my first week of classes, and of work; on top of that, there was cleaning up from Fay, taking care of new kittens, trying to figure out who to draft in fantasy football, and staying up for the DNC. Yes, I am a dork. But I am a sports dork, and as I paged through my planner this morning – determined to be organized for the first time in my life – my thoughts turned, as they often do, to basketball. Specifically, the NBA. And, as I actually noted the dates on my planner pages, my heart sank. The NBA’s season doesn’t start until October 31st. With a quadruple-header, no less! How am I going to deal that long?
But then, my heart sank even further, for at the end of my hectic week I realized: crap, I haven’t planned anything for my post this afternoon. I want to do right by you all, so I scoured my various folders for the very best of the pictures I’ve saved: pictures I’ve never had recourse to use here before, cute pictures, hot pictures, pictures for an off-season rainy day. For example, this picture of Kevin Garnett. Never had a post to use it in before; the Timberwolves jersey made it out of date before I even became a Lady. But I do appreciate his intensity here. And also, veins.
And so, join me in weeping at the length of the offseason enjoying the best of the basketball grab-bag – long on pictures, short on analysis – after the jump. Continue reading →
The Olympics are for chicks, and I mean that in absolutely the best way possible. We love the Olympics, and they love us – all the boy athletes we love to lust after have girl counterparts for us to root for, and everybody gets equal time. It’s the best time for hottie-spotting and for women’s sports. What’s not to love? Me, I love the Olympics for the same reason I love so many things: basketball.
See, I adore Team USA, I really do. I love Melo and Wade and Bron, I love Tayshaun, I love Chris Bosh. But I also love international competition, because it allows me to see so many hotties I never would see otherwise. Case in point: Team Spain. Case in point on Team Spain: Ricky Rubio. Does anybody know the Spanish for “wunderkind”?
The Olympics are here!…Well, on a tape delay, at least. Still, they’re very welcome – the natives have been getting restless on the interweb with, as my fellow Lady mentioned below, only baseball to keep us busy. But the Olympics won’t really be here until tonight, unfortunately. It’s Friday afternoon – who’s read to turn off their brains a little?
You see, this morning, I happened to turn on ESPN. Hmm, I thought absently, readying my breakfast, that guy’s kind of hot. Imagine my horror when I woke up a little to realize I had been admiring Mike Greenberg. These kinds of guilty little crushes happen to me all the time, as you’ll see under the jump. How about you, lovely readers? You got them too, right?
(Editor’s note: Lady M. Alana put the time and effort into this awesome post, but then her computer rebelled, so I’m posting it for her.)
They’re calling it the “Redeem Team”. They, of course, meaning the WWL*, but even so it’s a pretty good name. After all, USA Basketball hasn’t won gold in anything since a Democrat was in office; this team desperately wants to bring that glory back to the United States. And with twelve of the NBA’s best headed to Beijing, coached by the best of the NCAA and NBA, and sweeping through every team they meet on the way, that possibility is looking more and more in reach.
And what makes a team? Hot athletes! Let’s start with the shortest and work our way up, shall we?
