Getting a little international for this one – meet David ‘Dudu’ Aouate, Israeli goalie for Spanish team RCD Mallorca. Enjoy some bad boy smolder on this lovely Monday of night three. Especially if you love longer, wilder hair.

Advent Calendar of Hotness Day 7: Kayne Lawton
Leave it to me to disappear for a while again, only to resurface when it’s time to dedicate the entire holiday season to ogling men. For today’s delicious treat, a BIG thank you to CuteSports for bringing this one to my attention this summer. I’m pretty sure I single-handedly increased traffic on Google image searches for this gent’s name because of how many times I went on and on to every girl and gay man that hey, maybe Australian Rugby should be aired over here! I will warn you though – it is Friday, and some of these are not for the faint of heart. Oh how I’ve missed posting…
Hump Day Hottie: Boise State
After watching the craziness that was the Boise State/Virginia Tech game this past Monday, I noticed that Boise State wasn’t hurting for any hotties on their squad. While I felt a bit dirty checking out the young(er) boys, I decided it would be a disservice to not share these boys with the Ladies… readers.
So take a trip with me to Boise, Idaho where potatoes and hotties abound.
Hump Day Hottie: Jake Arrieta
So when looking for today’s HDH, I had to scour my brain for someone new and different. Then I remembered Jake Arrieta. Jake was just recalled by the Orioles in the hopes of actually winning a few games. And Jake won his MLB debut against the Yankees. I couldn’t help but notice how hot Jake was, so now I’m sharing him with you.
I know the Orioles suck, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take a trip with me to Birdland after the jump to see some more of Mr. Arrieta.
It’s almost here!
The rosters have been set. The teams have played their friendlies before making the trek to South Africa. Heck, we’ve even made it through Eurovision. (Congratulations, Germany.)
A week from now? It’s finally time. The group stage of the World Cup kicks off, and even America cares about soccer for at least five minutes. Me? I’ll be eating, sleeping and breathing international soccer until the very last second runs down.
Yes, I love soccer, but there’s just something about International play (and the World Cup in particular) that elevates the game. It turns the already rabid soccer fanbase into a bunch of flag-and-bunting-bedecked lunatics. I challenge anyone who doesn’t like or understand soccer to start watching the World Cup from the beginning. Trust me, you’ll come out at the other end swearing at the Abruzzi for being a bunch of diving whiners or being amazed at just how fast Portugal can move (Damn you, Ronaldo. Damn you to hell.) or harboring a secret love for the Orange.
And you know what else is great about the World Cup? International Eye candy. Above? Spain’s Fernando Torres.
More hotness after the jump.
Hump Day Hottie: Team USA
Since I’m snowed in today, I have snow on the brain. And, as most of you know, I usually have hockey on the brain. So why not show you a glimpse of some Team USA Hockey hotties? So follow me after the jump for some hotties to watch for in the next coming weeks!
Hump Day Hottie: NFL Wild Card Playoffs
Well, it’s finally here: Playoff Time! This is when you separate the men from the boys. Well us Ladies are separating the hotties from the not-so hotties. Take a trip with me after the jump to see some hotties playing in the Wild Card match-ups this weekend.
Ladies… Guide to Thanksgiving Day Hotties
One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving, besides the food, is football! So to get you ready for tomorrow’s games, I thought I’d showcase a few hotties from the six NFL teams playing tomorrow. Some of you have rooting interests in the game, whether it be personal preferences or fantasy points. For those of you who don’t have any rooting interests, here are some hotties that might just keep you interested in the games.
Follow me after the jump for some hotties to keep an eye out for on Turkey Day!
Your 2009-10 NHL Hotness Preview: Central Division
Today we’ve got the preview for the Central Division, by far the strongest division in the West. Ladies, the countdown to the regular season is on! Is it Thursday yet?
Your 2009-10 NHL Hotness Preview: Atlantic Division
As Lady Bee told you yesterday, we here at Ladies… can’t wait for the NHL season to finally start, so we’re doing some previews for those of you who feel our pain!
Today I’ll be previewing the Atlantic Division.
Are you ready for some football?
Earlier this week, The Ladies…held their fantasy football league draft. I couldn’t make it, as I was busy shoveling fondue into my face at dinner with my lovely husband. I let the drafting system autodraft my team, and…let’s just say that I don’t suggest doing that. Somehow I have six quarterbacks (if you can call Kyle Orton a quarterback at this point, which I don’t) and one defense. The fact that said defense is Miami is making me consider spending the entirety of the season drinking heavily, because I am so screwed.
Lesson learned: Draft your fantasy football team first. Then celebrate your wedding anniversary.
Anyway, we here at The Ladies… wouldn’t be The Ladies… if we didn’t bring you a little objectfication along with your football. We decided to pick the hottest members of our own teams, and to bring some lovely photographic evidence to you. You know, because we care. Abs, sweat, and football hotness after the jump.
Hump Day Hotties: AFC & NFC West
Some of us Ladies have been looking forward to football season, so I thought what better way to get everyone hyped than to feature a hottie from every NFL team. Each week for the next four weeks, we’ll be featuring lesser-known hotties from an AFC and NFC division.
So far we have featured hotties from the AFC & NFC North and East. This week, follow me after the jump to get a peek at some hotties from AFC and NFC West.
Monday Morning Manflesh
It’s the dog days of summer and getting moving on Monday morning can be a little rough, so I thought I’d post some pictures to get the heart rate elevated and the blood pumping.
This week, I’m going with some of the lesser known and enjoyed hotties.
Is there a better way to start a week than that?
The Ladies… play MLB GM: Call up Lenny DiNardo?
If I had a nickel for every time I wanted to do Royals General Manager Dayton Moore’s job, I’d have…a shitload of nickels. I’d love to think GMDM totally reads all the Royals blogs out there, and considers our suggestions. That’s proooobably not the case at all, but just in case: Hey GMDM, call up Lenny DiNardo! He could help your bullpen! And he’s a lefty!
Oh, and…he looks like this:
2009 Swimming World Championships
(Or, a great reason to post gratuitous pictures of Ryan Lochte)
Ryan won four golds at the 2009 World Championships in Rome. His big win came in the 200 meter IM, where he broke Michael Phelps world record. He also got gold in the 400IM, two relay golds and a bronze in the 200 backstroke.
“I felt really good,” Lochte said. “Any time you win a medal or break a world record, it makes you feel special. I knew I would have to swim faster than in previous rounds, but I think I can be even quicker. I will get back in the pool as soon as possible and train even harder.”
Phelps basically retired from this event after the Olympics last summer, leaving an opening for Lochte to step up.
As they said at the end of yesterday’s broadcast, Lochte solidified himself as the second-best swimmer in the world and the US has one hell of a one-two punch.
But enough of the details – I won’t pretend you care. Follow the jump for more pictures from the World Championships
Hockey Hotties on the Rise
NHL.com has inspired me! After doing Top 10 features on the Finns, Russians and Swedes (oh my!), I thought the Ladies… could get in on the Top 10 action. While my choices are less stats based and more looks based, I still think the following hotties are names to remember for next season.
So without further ado, here are 10 hotties on the rise.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the US Men’s National Team.
I want to paint you a little picture, readers. You see, for the last eight years or so, I’ve spent Saturday mornings waking up, rolling downstairs, and flipping on Fox Soccer to watch the day’s matches while my husband made snide comments about soccer being lame and boring.
Tonight? My husband not only voluntarily turned on the Gold Cup SemiFinals, but I’m a little concerned he may actually lose his voice screaming in support of the US Men’s National Team in the CONCACAF Gold Cup Finals on Sunday. My victory is nearly complete. As soon as he picks a Premiere League team to root for (please, Jesus, not Chelsea), I can start openly celebrating his utter conversion.
That’s beside the point, dear readers. The point is that after many, many years and many, many attempts, soccer may just be on the verge of arriving in the US. Oh, sure, it’s because the men’s team is playing incredibly well right now, but I’ll take it.
I think it’s high time the Ladies… met the US Men’s National Team. Join me, after the jump, won’t you?
Theme Thursday: Is it Hockey Season Yet?
Since Games Mistress is busy gallivanting around Europe (lucky bum!), I have taken over her Theme Thursday duties. Since we didn’t have a winner the last go-round, I took it upon myself to do a little research and come up with my own. Since I’m missing hockey like whoa, I thought I would bring some NHL love back to the site.
Take a guess as to what these three NHLers have in common after the jump!
What’s Your Fantasy? The Ladies… talk Fantasy Baseball
So if you’re like me, not only do you love sports, you love fantasy sports, as well. Personally, I feel like managing a fantasy teams helps me be a better fan. But that’s a topic for another day. Today, I’m going to let you in on my drafting strategy. I know we’re just past the All-Star break, but it’s never a bad time to discuss the make-up of your team and how it came to be. Now is the time in the season where you take a step back and evaluate your talent.
It’s make or break time, people! If you’re looking for the answers to your fantasy team woes, this post may not be the best answer, but I can sure help you with some strategy for the future after the jump.
