Showing One’s Butt is MY Talent Too!

Amanda Holden is apparently a judge on Brits Have Talent, a show that I can only imagine is filled with epic performances of people singing old Eton songs, stuffing their faces with scones and of course a guy who can say “quite” 1000 times in a minute. But I’m getting off my point.

In the 1970s photographer Martin Elliott took what became an iconic poster of a woman playing tennis sans the appropriate undergarments of a genteel lady. Since I ain’t genteel, I like the original picture. Holden recently posed for some photos recreating the famous poster, although she chose to be a bit more demure than the original.

Holden isn’t the hottest but for a woman in her late 30s she’s pretty decent, and really this is just an excuse for me to post the original photograph below. First is the original and then the new Holden version, obviously one is better than the other… However, check out a couple more from the shoot that are a bit better after the jump including a tasteful eating strawberries pick and a hint of camel-toe.

Who Knew Budweiser Was So Versatile!

Jon Daly and Kid Rock teamed up together at the Buick Pro-Am event in Michigan, making possibly the first complete white-trash team in golfing history. Showing that you can take them out of the trailer but you can’t take it out of them, check out Jon Daly teeing off using Kid Rock’s tallboy Budweiser can.

I only wish Daly golfed in a pair of overalls also, it would make the day that much more special. Someday… Also, I love the crowd reaction, particularly the guy who calls for Daly to shotgun the beer. Golf is branching out!

Shawn Chacon Chokes His Way Out of the Majors

We all think about doing it, but for most people, common sense kicks in and we don’t indulge our inner demons. I’m of course referring to the our inner desires to kick our respective bosses asses. Well, Shawn Chacon found his breaking point on Wednesday and grabbed general manager Ed Wade by the throat and throwing him to the ground and then jumping on top of him.

That’s certainly a way to express your displeasure at being removed from the rotation over the weekend. Of course, when you begin the season with 9 straight no-decisions and are currently 2-3 with an ERA over 5 in 15 starts, maybe it’s not the GM’s fault…

“I sat down to eat and Ed Wade came to me and very sternly said, ‘You need to come with me to the office,'” Chacon said. “I said ‘for what?’ I said ‘I don’t want to go to the office with you and Cooper.’ And I said, ‘You can tell me whatever you got to tell me right here.’ He’s like, ‘Oh, you want me to tell you right here?’ And I said, ‘yeah.’ I’m not yelling. I’m calm.”

Tim Wakefield Got a Lot Uglier

Tim Wakefield pitched a gem of a game last night, allowing 2 hits over seven shutout innings but his most impressive accomplishment was undergoing an intensive Face/Off operation immediately after leaving the game, changing identities with Randy Johnson during the 7th inning stretch. I’m going to assume it was done so that Wakefield could go undercover at the national Ugly Man competition while tracking some missing diamonds.

Wow, he really can do it all, first he was an infielder, than he became a very successful knuckleballer and now he’s also an international crime fighter. Awesome!
