Friends, we can hardly believe it ourselves:
Ladies… celebrates its six month anniversary today.
(Artwork, as ever, courtesy of our incomparable Lady J-Money)
And what a ride. We’ve traveled into enemy territory, back to our alma maters, cross country to spring training, back home for Opening Day, seen legendary parks up close and raced to the bottom of too many pint glasses.
We’ve nursed all manner of inexplicable crushes in hilarious fashion.
We’ve taken to the streets and done a little spokesmodeling (step aside, Danbury Mint, and move over, Milano).
We’ve brought in guest stars from time to time, made ourselves at home elsewhere, and even gotten our parents in on the action.
We’ve seen grandiose plans exceed our highest expectations (this happened, right?) and crash in flames (let us never speak of this again).
And we’ve made it our mission to showcase the finest in baseball ass (and forearms!) from across the land, and to see that excellence is duly rewarded.
If you’re feeling indulgent (and who wouldn’t, after that cupcake?), join us after the jump for a highlight reel:
- The site debuts. And so do we.
- We go green.
- A college basketball season marked by joyous, raucous panty raids beforehand and crippling hangovers afterwards.
- We put the “mad” (short for “maxipad”, natch) in March Madness. And we found religion! And it worked!
- While still making time for some offseason footbawl goodies.
- And speaking of madness…
- David Beckham is welcomed to WeHo (or, The Post That Will Not Die).
- We mine for baseball hotties and troll for football crushes.
- And discover that golf is surprisingly easy to love.
- Michael Phelps is Google gold–who knew?
- Truly the pinnacle of our prop comedy genius.
- An evening not even Berman could spoil.
- Soc-cer? Caliente!
- We’re quite (FRANKLY) mad, you know.
- We rock the plate (and so did you).
- Tackling the thorny issue of fair trade value.
- Some summer fashion advice.
- The eyes have it.
- Speaking of eyes, we keep finding ours drifting across the pond.
- And running with the boys.
It’s been a true privilege, everyone. And this is only the beginning. Thanks for sticking with us, and here’s to you:
I would like to take this moment to formally apologize for this picture. My only regret.
Let me be the first to congratulate you on a job (to be continued) well done…
Even though I don’t share quite the same appreciation for the XY sporting chromosome, ya’ll have established yourself as one of the most collectively talented sporting blogs around.
Please keep up the sublime work, as the ‘Blogosphere’ is certainly better off with your presence.
Love the photoshopping on top, because really, who doesn’t want to see Aaron Rowand in a tux emerging from your baked goods? Could one of you explain how you coinded the term “bacon pants” by the way? I’m still not clear on that one. Congrats on the anniversary. And I think it’s time to show Russel Branyan some love. Clare and Texas Girl know what I’m talking about.
The only disappointing thing about this post or the site was that last picture of beer being poured. Congrats.
I hate it when people waste booze like that.
6 months? That’s it?!?!?!?!?
YOU MEAN WE HAVE SUFFER THREE MORE BEFORE THE BABY COMES OUT?!?!?!??!?!?!?
No wonder I’m so exhausted.
1. BACON PANTS IN A CUPCAKE?!?! – JMoney is a genius. Can I get one of those delivered for my birthday on Saturday, please? (and Branyan gets double scoops of love from me, Lionel)
2. It is never a waste when beer is poured over a gorgeous ballplayer, StN. And holy hell is Jacoby Ellsbury gorgeous.
3. Congrats and mad love to all my Ladies… you are all brilliant, and I’ve loved every minute of the past 6 months with y’all — except for the goddamned Hot Blogger nonsense. Why the hell did we do that, again?
TG – I blame Shanoff for emailing us his headshot during the NCAA tourney.
It only encouraged us.
I see six months of blogging causes insomnia. That’s good to know.
What’s the six month anniversary? Silly Putty™?
I discovered this blog a few months back, so I missed the first few months. Congratulations Ladies!
Thanks, other Ladies, for letting me be part of the fun.
Cocktails and pudding to everyone!
Congrats, Ladies! Thanks for giving me a place to ogle the athletes.
Congrats ladies…You all continue to amuse and inform here and on the mothership. Keep up the great work.
Yay, Ladies! I drink to you! Unfortunately, it’s 9:25 Atlantic and I have nothing but coffee, but whatev!
Hooray Ladies! What a wonderful blog – many thanks for the laughs and great blog entries.
On a sidenote – I never thought bacon in a cupcake would actually look so good…
Congrats, Ladies…! You’ve turned me bi-curious. Thanks for nothing.
Keep up the good work!
This is outstanding work, especially the photoshop. My, my. I am honored to be a part of this endeavor, Ladies.
Thanks for putting up with my crap for six months.
Bravo! I wish I could still read you at work, but the company thinks you’re a “social networking” site. They’re not wrong.
Huzzah! I don’t know how you do all of this and still maintain jobs and lives, all while looking fabulous. I thought this site was a good idea but I had no idea what you were going to do with it. You’ve exceeded expectations every step of the way and the best is yet to come*. Don’t forget me when you’re (even more) famous.
I’m going back to admire your work now.
Looking forward to the Ladies… first football season, and of course loving the content so far. Thanks!
Happy Birthday, Ladies…!
Working with y’all these past 6 months has been so amazing.
Here’s to the next 6 months!
Congratulations ladies! These six months have felt like 25 years, in truly the best way.
congrats ladies! you’ve given me untold moments of joy and ogling.
This post would be incomplete if I didn’t comment…Bravo…err…Brava!
OK, the etymology of Bacon Pants is quite a stupid one.
My roommate was making herself breakfast for dinner one night, and while she was frying some bacon, Aaron Rowand was at the plate. I was partaking in a post-work glass of pinot gris (or five) and I put the two meaty, delicious things together. And Bacon Pants was born.
Six months old! We should be able to sit up without support and we’re ready for solid foods!
Love the site & can’t wait for fball season and all the hotties! (I myself married an OLineman, so I am deffinitely partial to the gridiron gods)
Awww, my baby brother’s an O-Lineman. Love them.
A Bacon cupcake? Um. Sign me up!!! That picture is classic. GREAT photoshop.
And regarding the beer spillage, it’s not alcohol abuse if it’s bad beer, right? It’s doing the world a favor.
Finally, CONGRATULATIONS, Ladies…!!! And many more.
Wooo! It’s a pleasure working with the rest of you. I honestly don’t know how I lucked out and got in this, but I’m glad I did.
The is the most deliciously tempting cupcake ever.
It’s been a pleasure developing little crushes on all of you, in that not creepy sort of way. If that’s possible. I should stop talking.
Rowand looks like Billy Bob Thornton and K-Fed had a kid.
Other than that completely obsolete comment, I raise my glass and toast to another six months of this blessed place of man-ass worship. Thank goodness for, I don’t know, pretty much every male-run blog for posting enough female ass to not make me feel awkward about visiting here.
Happy half birthday Ladies…
E-beers on me…or something.
Congrats ladies! Where would the rest of us girls be without you – thank God I work from home so I can ogle the boys all day!
This site brightens never fails to brighten my day; congrats on a fine six months!
Oh and the picture — greatest photoshop effort of our generation.
Happy half-Birthday! For some reason if feels like it’s been so much longer than 6 short months.
Wonderful work. Here’s to the undiscovered country of another six months.
Happy half birthday, ladies. In blog years, 6 months is a long time.
Congrats ladies on a great six months. You have given me a great something to look forward to everyday (especially wednesdays) and looking forward to many more great months.
