The Ladies … Give Thanks

I am thankful both these men wear Cardinal red.

Games Mistress is thankful both of these men wear Cardinal red.

Happy (American) Thanksgiving from the Ladies!

While we’re thankful for family, friends, and the chance to stuff ourselves with food while in the company of said family and friends, we here at Ladies… are also thankful for what the sports world has given us over the past year.

Hot Stove Hottie timeout: Farewell to Mad Dog

Normally at this time we’d be covering the things that went on in the MLB markets in the past week, but this week we’ll stand aside to tip our caps to one of the most brilliant pitchers our generation has seen or will ever see. Winter meetings are going on right now, and you can get all kinds of updates from MLB Trade Rumors, as well as great updates directly from Vegas from Will Carroll, John Perrotto, and Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus.

Now, on to the very sad business of Greg Maddux announcing his retirement today.

Mother’s Day Potpourri – Your Mom Loves Hot Athletes Too

There is nothing like our moms and the idea of a Mother’s Day post to get these Ladies started.

I could have easily re-posted the 58 emails we exchanged over the course of just one evening talking about our mothers and the relationships we have with them. We laughed, we cried, we admitted to not always being the best of daughters and that more than a few of us, *ahem*, still have not told our moms about this site. Our discussion had enough material to keep Lifetime, Sandra Bullock, and Diane Keaton in business for at least a few more years. (Nancy Meyers! Call us!)

Today for Mother’s Day, we’ve posted a series of posts for our moms and featured the athletes they find hot. Or at least cute. Or maybe know the names of. So scroll down the site and say hi to our mothers, because you know your mom probably loved this guy…

Mother’s Day Potpourri – Momma Magnolia

beckerboris206.jpeg I grew up in one of those houses where complaints of a headache were met with “Here, sugar, have half a Xanax.” As you might imagine, we watched a lot of tennis. My mother’s touring Europe this summer, and is making me teach her German phrases to employ in case she encounters Boris Becker poolside somewhere on The Continent. Now, I love my mother, but we have what you’d charitably call a Complicated Relationship, so understand that when she turns out to have asked her idol to remove the axe from her head when she thought she was asking to buy him a drink, I misled her out of love. And spite. But mostly love.

Happy Mothers’ Day, Momma.

Happy Birthday TheStarterBoyfriend!

Starterboyfriend, thank you for all of the following  -  

  1. Letting me oogle hot athletes for this site and not getting jealous once.
  2. For making me laugh every single day with such jems as, “That ice drying you out”, “Should I shake this?”,  and “Do you think I should eat this pepper?”
  3. Laughing at my jokes and understanding that about 95% of everything I say is tinged with sarcasm.
  4. For all the times you’ve had to hose off the driveway after I’ve had too many vodka tonics.
  5. Becoming a Steeler fan for me and not complaining once when I’ve spent too much on tickets for the games.
  6. Not getting mad when I come home at 4am from the Bike.
  7. That on your birthday, the one day you ever take off work, I come home and found you have bought me a present.
  8. For being 6’3 and 220!
  9. Our pet Splorg.
  10. When I say I want to make a teddy bear picnic video your first reaction is, “What can I do to help?” 
  11. And for this…
