Well, I guess we all knew this was coming. Nothing lasts forever, not even the oogling of hot athletes doing what they and we love most. Actually, that will last forever. I mean, can you just stop admiring Grady Sizemore’s smile of Rafael Nadal’s ass? No? Well, we can’t either. It’s just the writing of it that will stop.
So I have the unlucky task of breaking the news. It’s with a heavy heart that I say that some of our ladies will be leaving Ladies… Don’t fret though, because Miss Minda and Games Mistress will be continuing on and keeping up the Ladies… standard. For right now some of us would like to say a last word to all of you. Hit the jump for our last words.
We are now a little over 48 hours away from the culmination of the entire 2008-09 NFL season. Just like the World Series, this championship features a team making its unlikely first appearance in the big game and … a team from Pennsylvania. Plus they are playing it in Tampa. It’s certainly not the first time a city has hosted both a World Series and a Super Bowl, but it may be the first time a city outside of California has done it. So there’s your (unverified) Super Bowl fact of the day.
As this is a sports blog, written by sports fans, most of us Ladies have plans to watch the game. Some of us are neutral, some of us have a particular team, some of us are just obsessed with Kurt Warner, but we’ll all be parked in front of a television somewhere at game time. Further details after the jump, but first:
POP (AND ALCOHOL) QUIZ
Can you match the beverages below with the Lady who will be drinking it during the game? (Options: Lady Andrea, SA, Minda, Games Mistress, and Cinnamon Girl)
A week after losing to Virginia Tech, #6 Wake Forest goes and beats # 1 Duke, all thanks to this guy. James Johnson scored 13 point, including the shot with 0.8 seconds left to win the game, 70-68. Duke’s Kyle Singler had 22 points and 12 rebounds, but that wasn’t enough. Continue reading →
The Virginia Tech Hokies brought down the #1 team in the land, upsetting the Wake Forest Deacons, 78-71. I’m sure there are very few things that feel better than beating a #1 team at their home. Malcolm Delaney scored 21 points and Jeff Allen added 16 in support of the Hokies. Continue reading →
The Celtics took out their recent frustrations by winning their 3rd in a row, beating the poor Nets, 118-86. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett combined for 42 points, while Devin Harris led the Nets in scoring, with 17 points. Continue reading →
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 →
The Yankees aren’t done with their Xmas list. Not yet. It’s rumoured that they’ve offered A.J. Burnett a 5 year deal. His agent is looking for something in the $90 mil range. I cannot possibly see that ending badly. *Cough* Jaret Wright/Carl Pavano *Cough* Continue reading →
Chances are if you’re reading this blog then you are a sports-minded lady. Do you know what to ask for from your family and/or friends? Maybe you have a certain special female in your life that love sports more than you? Do you know where to start in purchasing her the perfect gift this holiday season?
I thought not. So take a gander at the Ladies… gift lists and get inspired. It’s not all tickets. Someone wants this.
The Allen Iverson-led Pistons shut down the Cavaliers and their 8-game winning streak, 96-89. Lebron had 25 points, against Iverson’s 23 points. I am quite fond of Allen Iverson’s chocolate brown eyes, but watching his body in motion is pretty sweet, too. And yes, I’m quite aware of the irony of my admiring his body in motion, and using a still photo to prove that point, but bear with me.
As Metsy was watching some paralympics stuff this weekend, she found an untapped source of hot men – paralympians. We here at Ladies… would be remiss if we did not share this with the rest of you. Follow me after the break for the photos, courtesy of Metschick.
In news that only I care about, David Wright and Carlos Beltran get Gold Gloves in the National League. I’m a little dismayed at the lack of GG love for Santana, who is a joy to watch fielding his position. Instead, Greg Maddux gets a record 18th Gold Glove for his fielding excellence.
Also winning Gold Gloves were Yadier Molina, Adrian Gonzalez, Jimmy Rollins, Brandon Phillips, Nate McClouth and Shane Victorino.
In other good news for Mets fans, the team picked up the option on Carlos Delgado. Now, they’ve just got to find a whole new bullpen.
When TSW started the Friday Football Foodie, I immediately pounced on the idea of posting a how-to on how to make empanadas. The fact that I did not know how to make empanadas was not important. I’d solicit the help of one of my sisters-in-law (I have legion), and boom! We have empanadas.
I never realized that it’d take me 13 months to actually get it done. I’m a master procrastinator, what can I say?
Here’s all you need. Simple as pie (why do people say this? Making pies doesn’t look easy!). Continue reading →
As I write this, Baby Mets’ Phanatic is taunting me. He’s staring at me with his evil, beady eyes. He’s sticking out his little red tongue at me. Stop it, Phanatic, or you’ll go back from whence you came!
So, as everyone knows, in the continuation of Game 5 (started Monday), the Phillies beat the Rays 4-3. This is where I’d give you some analysis about the game, or the Series, but I saw that VH1 was wrapping up their 100 Greatest Hip Hop Songs, and that was enough to lure me away from the WS. (BTW, Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power” was voted #1.) Continue reading →
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 →
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.
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.
Another day, another run-in with the po-po. While at a Luda party (I would give my first born to attend a party thrown by Ludacris), he went at it with his Cowboys babysitter “bodyguard”. He’s lucky that he wasn’t arrested, but he’s really putting his namesake to shame. (FYI: for the longest time, I thought his real name was Pacman. C’mon, there are kids named Pilot Inspektor and Kenadi running around out there. Pacman isn’t that much of a stretch.)
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’m sitting here right now, with a pit in my stomach. The season isn’t over, but I feel – seriously, I don’t even know what I feel anymore. I’m spent. This season has taken it out of me. I can’t even look for a picture, because I prefer to forget the past few hours. Long story short, the Mets let countless opportunities slip through their fingers. (That, or the Cubs pitchers just bore down at the right moment. One or the other.) And that is the game in a nutshell – a Cubs 9-6 victory over the Mets. Continue reading →
You, sir, beat the Braves, 6-1, winning your first game this season. You pitched 6 scoreless innings, and your phellow Phillies did their thang with the stick, as they are wont to do. So, for that, Mr. Happ, you get top billing. With this win, the Phillies remain 1/2 a game ahead of the Mets… Continue reading →
