Hump Day Hottie: Robin van Persie

It’s almost the end of the year so we only have a few more HDH’s of 2008. Hopefully we can end this right. But how can you not end it right when we’re dealing with hot athletes?

Anyway, there’s a certain reason our HDH is Arsenal’s Robin van Persie this week. It’s a welcome back gift for someone. Her favorite team happens to be Arsenal and considering I’ve already done Cesc Fabregas I’m going with another hottie from the Gunners. So welcome back you. I hope van Persie can put you in the right Ladies… frame of mind.

Hump Day Hottie: Marat Safin

Usually I don’t really pay attention to tennis until the French Open, but ever since the Tennis Master’s Cup Final happened in November I’ve been longing for the sport. I have no idea why. I’m thinking it’s my Rafa obsession but who knows? Anyway, I’m counting down the days until the new year when the season gets started again. But just because we’re not in season doesn’t mean we can’t make one of tennis’ hottest ballers our HDH. So Marat Safin, welcome to the Ladies… HDH club.

Your Thanksgiving Day Viewing Schedule

You know what the best part of Thanksgiving? It’s not the family or the food or any of that. It’s the sports you’ll be watching to get away from your family. Okay, and maybe the food. So I thought, when you’re half paying attention to your job or any news as it is today, that I would give you a highlight on some of the games that are coming tomorrow. You can be with your family during all the Black Friday stuff.

I find Dwight Howard to be totes adorable. Hell be adding to your sports viewing tomorrow.

Hump Day Hottie: Chris Paul

I have no idea why I’m on this NBA baller kick. But who cares when they’re really cute NBA ballers. I think I’ve said this before, but when Paul was at Wake Forest (for more than one year at that!) I hated him. Mostly because he was really good and played on a rival team, but the point is I didn’t like him. He also hit another players in the…man area. Way uncool. So when he finished his college career with an overtime lost (granted it was a great game) to West Virginia I was giddy in my hate.

Now, however, I really like Paul. He seems like a genuine good guy who loves basketball and Winston-Salem. And somehow through the hate I didn’t notice how hot he was. What a change in jersey can do. So I offer up to you the hotness that is CP3.

Hooray! College Basketball Is Here!

Yes, I’m a bit overexcited. But who cares? College basketball, after it’s long, long, long hiatus, is finally upon us. We’ve had a few games played already and a 24-hour ballathon soon (excuse me while I squee in delight) maybe it’s time to scoop out the hotties by conference. And since me and Miss Christina’s favorite conference is the ACC, let’s start there. Here are a few of the hotties you should know about. Starting with Tyrese Rice, from Boston College.

Hump Day Hottie: Dwayne Wade

Chitown Chick and I seriously debated about, if Barack Obama won the Presidential election, making him the HDH this week. We were both for it and at about 11:30 PM last night I was thinking about all the great Grant Park speech pictures I could put up here (Chitown Chick was actually there last night. So. Jealous.). And then I realize that while CtC and I would love to have an Obama HDH, not every one of our readers might like that. There’s a reason why some (ok, a lot) people don’t like a mixing of sports and politics. And in the end it might be best to not have our lovely little blog be overrun with a bunch comments that have nothing to do with hot athletes.

So I thought I would go with another hottie from Chicago, Dwayne Wade. I actually don’t have much to talk about D-Wade with today as the NBA season is really just getting underway and I’m still on a politics high, but I thought it’d be cool to spread the Chicago love. And he somehow hasn’t been our HDH yet so it’s time to change that.
