Sunday is Ladies' Day

As promised, a little bit of eye candy for our female followers. Consider it our own tiny version of Tiger's apology. And a reminder of a time in the not so distant past when the Wrens actually played up to their potential. May such a time come again soon.

















We had to get the technical staff from Gheorghe: The Design Studio involved because of the low quality of the initial photo. We're keeping the name of the photographer anonymous out of concern for the professional reputation of her brother, a noted ESPN reporter with a number of huge stories on the performance enhancing drugs beat to his credit.

There are too many amusing aspects of that picture to even begin to comment on it. It took me a couple of minutes just to figure out who, in fact, was in the picture.

TR said...

I'm pretty sure it's Scott Van Pelt and Rick Moranis.

Today's NYT has an article about a "breast whisperer." I thought to myself "I would like to have that job" but then I started reading more and it turns out that the article is about a lactation consultant, a job in which I have no interest. So don't fall for this trick.

zoltan said...

Did the guy on the left lose 20 pounds or is it just the funky image manipulation?

mayhugh said...

I'm pretty sure that's one of the images that flashes across the screen during the intro of Good Times.

I know I'm digging kind of deep here, but the doubles bowling on ESPN features a couple of above-average chicks throwing the rocks. Yes, one is a little goth/manish and the other is a little bottom-heavy, but it's doing the job.

Greg said...

Who is that leader of men?

rob said...

ovechkin just planted jagr in center ice, leading directly to a turnover and goal. awesome.

rob said...

nbc's running a miracle on ice retrospective. i'm such a sucker for this story.

rob said...

eruzione scores!

Mark said...

Me too Rob. I watched an ESPN piece on it this morning and I just watched the NBC piece. Definitely got a little dusty in my living room over the last 5 minutes or so...

rob said...

never fails. that story is covered in dust.

TR said...

I can't be the only one here fired up for USA-Canada. John Vanbiesbrouck says it would be a bigger upset than 1980. Moron.

rob said...

to be fair, the beezer used to practice without a mask

When I was a kid my stepfather got me an autographed photo of Mike Eruzione. His signature is on the opposite end of the cool autograph spectrum from Mickey Mantle's. He just wrote his name in all capital letters with a black grease pencil. And if you've met my stepfather you know he's not crafty enough to do that himself, so I think it's really Eruzione's handywork.

Dave said...

that's great-- rating coolness through graphology.

i've got an awesome signature-- if only i had some talent to go with it . . .

rob said...

that's a nice start for the usa

TR said...

USA! USA! USA!

41 seconds in. Wow.

rob said...

nice deflection, crosby

zoltan said...

I'm still chowing through a bag of dicks that started out with more dicks in it than Madonna's delicates. The bag is now down to Jessica Simpon's coochie's level of dicks. Which is to say, I have a few dicks left to eat but none of them are particularly impressive.

TR said...

A lot of moxie shown by this young American squad. And a lot of lazy stickwork by Brodeur. Both goals came from poor clearing efforts by him.

Geoff said...

I wasn't gonna fill out my census form...but then I caught that commercial where the male Olympic ice dancer asked me to fill it out. Now I'm definitely going to fill it out. In pink highlighter.

TR said...

The end of this 2nd period is so exciting it actually gave me goose bumps. Great hockey is as entertaining as any sporting event.

Jerry said...

Love the way our guys are playing.

TR said...

Al Michaels may have to shake the dust off his "Do you believe in miracles" call.

TR said...

You get the feeling Canada is going to unload on us in the last 10-12 minutes. Miller is going to need to be very special.

Geoff said...

Was trying to decide if it would be awesome or hokey if they had Michaels call a potential USA-Russia medal round game. Leaning towards awesome. Is Ken Dryden alive/available?

mayhugh said...

Miller is awesome. Whoever he is.

Geoff said...

Soft goal. Canadians love hockey almost as much as Crosby loves having sex with men.

mayhugh said...

I'm waiting for an actual kitchen sink to hit miller in the chest.

This is unbelievable.

mayhugh said...

wow

TJ said...

America. Fuck and Yeah.

mayhugh said...

How many shots did Canada have on goal? Like, 80?

rob said...

ryan miller, giant among men

Jerry said...

Suck some American balls Sidney.

Looking ahead, tonight's Sweden-Finland game is very important for Team USA. The #1 overall seed will face Switzerland/Belarus. #2 gets Slovakia/Norway. Big gap between Slovakia and the rest of those guys.

Both Scandis are on 6 points. Any OT result gives USA the #1. If Finland wins in regulation, they get #1. If Sweden wins in regulation, they'd have to win by 6 to pass us on goal diff.

Greg said...

If TMZ quoted Jerry in print, it would be "love...guys....playing"

Jerry said...

Canada/Russia in the QFs. Maybe the 2 best teams in the tournament.

Jerry said...

If TMZ quoted me in print it would say,

"Russia...the...best...t..o....m..e"
