Weekend Wrap-Up #127: Jamie Edmondson Edition

Posted by Dave On July - 30 - 2011

The NFL Lockout is officially over. The players union ratified the owners proposal for a new collective bargaining agreement that will be in place for the next 10 years. Once that happened the floodgates opened and NFL teams were able to sign their draft picks, release players and sign free agents and other players who were released. And oh yeah, NFL training camps opened up immediately for the teams to get ready for their first set of pre-season games. A lot has been going on in the past week and because we are laser focused on all things NFL and the tailgating that goes with it, we could not pass on an opportunity to share with you a previously unreleased photo of Playboy Playmate Jamie Edmondson modeling some NFL apparel.

Last week we featured a video of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleaders attending the Howl-O-Scream event at Busch Gardens. That was just a warm up for the coming weekend which featured NFL games being played on October 31st. Most NFL cheer squads dress in Halloween outfits on the home game that is closest to Halloween but this year, Halloween fell on a Sunday. So if you didn’t go to an NFL game this Sunday, here is a taste of what you missed. Links to follow:

Mid-Week Eye Candy Wrapper #98: Scared Cheerleaders Edition

Posted by Dave On October - 28 - 2010

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleaders attended the Howl-O-Scream event at Busch Gardens and thankfully they wore their skimpy game day uniforms while doing it. I am also thankful that someone decided to bring along a video camera and capture the experience on film. If watching scantily clad, extremely attractive, buxom women walking through a spook house and screaming in terror is your….. what? You’re still reading this….? Links to follow:

I am not much into fashion shows. Nor am I much into the Miami Dolphins. But when I find a video on YouTube of the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders doing a swimsuit calendar release party…..

Mid-Week Eye Candy Wrapper #89: Laker Girl Edition

Posted by Dave On June - 3 - 2010

I know that tailgating for most indoor sports like basketball and hockey is hard to come by. I’m not sure if it is the fact that many of those games are played on weekdays and it is hard for employed people to get to the arena in time to set up and tailgate before heading into the game. And after all, you kind of need a job if you want to support your tailgating habit. It isn’t cheap sometimes so having a way to pay for is essential. So in honor of the NBA Finals kicking off tonight I vowed to myself that I would wait for Game 1 between the Lakers and the Celtics to be over before choosing tonight’s eye candy. The determining factor was simple. Post a cheerleader from the winning team. You don’t have to check the box scores anymore. Just look down. You’re welcome America. Links to follow:
