Weekend Wrap-Up #118: Sarah Frechette Edition

Posted by Dave On November - 14 - 2010

The Lingerie Football League has been in the news lately. Not because one of the players had a major “wardrobe malfunction’ but because Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett has said no to the Lingerie Football League establishing a franchise there. In all fairness, the OKC Mayor only said he would be opposed to a franchise using a city owned facility to host its games. My only question to Mr. Cornett is, “have you seen the outfits the OKC Thunder Cheerleaders wear?”. If he has an issue with women running around in public buildings with little clothing on, he might want to check Oklahoma City Arena first. After all, who wouldn’t want the likes of Sarah Frechette bringing her talents to your city? Links follow the pic:

Mid-Week Eye Candy Wrapper #97: ASU Tailgating Edition

Posted by Dave On September - 30 - 2010

This video has been making the rounds on the sports blogs and the internet so we are not breaking any new ground here. So what’s so great about it? Well, if you consider a guy old enough to qualify for hip replacement surgery dancing and hitting on Arizona State co-eds at a tailgate party pretty cool, this video is worth a look. This dude is awesome proving that you don’t have to be in college to enjoy college football tailgating. And how does this qualify as eye candy? The girls that volunteer to dance with the guy plus a casual scan of the other gals cheering them on qualifies for sure. Links to follow:

Weekend Wrap #29: Hurricane Ike Edition

Posted by Dave On September - 13 - 2008

news_wrap.jpgHurricane Ike is a killer. A tailgate killer that is. Not only did Hurricane Ike go Ike Turner on Reliant Stadium but the fallout means the game between the Texans and the Raves will be postponed. That means the Houston area tailgaters looking for a ray of sunshine in the form of tailgating will have to wait another week. Then again, those without power and gas will be pseudo-tailgating after all. The bummer part is that they do not have to pack up and head into the game after it is all said and done. In all seriousness, we hope everyone affected by Hurricane Ike comes away unharmed. Now on to the links…
