If you love NHL hockey, and you have a sense of humour (seems required these days if you subscribe to the former), then chances are you are quite familiar with the excellent hockey blog Down Goes Brown. Brown, or Down, or…well, anyway, his parents and spouse know him as Sean McIndoe. He’s pulled together a compilation of his best work on the blog in The Best of Down Goes Brown, which was released this fall. Continue reading

In Which the Ladies Join In To The “Farewell Joe Morgan” Blog Circus

If you read this blog, you probably read many other sports blogs or internet sports related media, and you know that Tuesday, ESPN announced it was not renewing the contracts of its Sunday Night Baseball team, which meant to Twitter and Facebook enabled baseball fans everywhere, that Joe Morgan finally got fired.   And even if we here at Ladies were a bit too preoccupied with the jobs we actually still have this week to put up an instant response, we still couldn’t let an event sports fans have been waiting for for at least half a decade go by without comment.  Our thoughts below (and yours, hopefully, below that).

MLB All-Star Game Shoe Porn

Apparently Mr. Ronaldo was the first futbol player to sport the orange cleats that littered the World Cup this summer. He debuted them back in October of 2009, if my sources are correct.

Shoes seem to be such a hot topic these days.  First, we had the whole orange shoe craze at the World Cup, now the flashy shoes have infiltrated the MLB All-Star Game.  Everyone’s favorite announcers, Chris Berman and Joe Morgan, were all abuzz about David Ortiz’s shoes that they forgot to talk about all the home runs he was hitting.

So join me after the jump, where we take a look at some All-Star Game foot fashion. Forget the long ball, chicks dig the shoes.

Tell Me What Ya Want, What Ya Really Really Want

Cristiano is begging you to help the Ladies out!

Ok Ladies… readers, this post is for you.

We ladies are looking to revamp the site.  We’ve been brainstorming on some new features we want to introduce to you, the reader.  My fellow Ladies and I want to hear from our readers because we realize that you are the reason we keep this blog going.  So what do you want?

What features do you like and want more of?  What features could you do without?  What features should we do that we aren’t right now?  Are we missing something that you think we should be covering?  Is there an old feature we did in the past that you would like to see make an appearance again?  You get the picture.

Tell us what you think in the comments.  Don’t be afraid.  We need some constructive criticism and, most importantly, your input on what we can do to make this place better.

And no worries…we’re still going to bring you hot athletes on a daily basis! ;-)

In Honor of Valentine’s Day… The Best Sports Bromances

H/T to Your Nation's Capital over at Japer's Rink for the image. She put all the pretty hearts around my two favorite Russians: Alex Ovechkin and Alex Semin!

Follow me after the jump to see if your favorite duo made the cut!
