What Happened to the Hot Beach Volleyballer?

Florida Marlins scrub catcher Matt Treanor’s wife, otherwise known as the infinitely more successful, athletic and talented US beach volleyballer Misty May-Treanor, is going to be on the next installment of shlockfest “Dancing With the Stars.” People Magazine, bastion of fine reporting and fair analysis, opted to present this image of Misty to their readers so as to introduce her to them.

Sure, spending hours and hours in the hot beach sun can’t be great for you, but I don’t understand how she immediately became the bride of Skeletor either. Or why the editors felt that THAT was the image that was most necessary to portray May-Treanor. There are thousands of other really great images of her across the web, and not just the ones of her butt, her face features prominently in many of them too!

For example, here she is in full airbrushed glory:

And here she is in natural, candid photography:

Pretty nice if you ask me. Not the terrifying witch-lady in the first photo. But then, that’s me, and it is all superficial anyways. I just find it interesting that they chose that picture to be the one for May-Treanor. C’mon People, do a TEENSY bit more research than that…

    Good for them for picking a *real* photo. There are enough air brushed and perfectly lighted images of female celebrities (athletic or otherwise)… Ordinary women are constantly bombarded by photos of “perfection” and I can’t tell you how reassuring it is to see them as they truly are. (And men can do with a good dose of reality as well so they stop judging real – [ i.e. women they actually have a chance with] – women by such unrealistic standards.

    I have to agree with you on this one. That photo is horrendous!!! I am a woman, and I would be outright embarassed if People put that picture of me in, so I don’t want to hear the “real” picture crap. Anyone that has watched her knows that is NOT what she looks like on a daily basis. She is so much prettier when she is completely natural and in the moment.

    Misty looks like a tramp, but after some rehearsal fottage last weel with the pink/Orange non-dress no wonder whay she wanted Maks to go to NY with her when she visited Tiger woods to support his ‘video’ game. Anything to stay away from the hub. Ask jason at the plympics.

    The digitally altered phot of her for Maxsim is obviously fake and it is easy to see. She was more altered by the computer then the air brush. GO Misty … a pratically single woman enjoy your self.

Sign Our Petition!

The Slanch Report has started an online petition asking the MLB Network to air the Dock Ellis no-hitter he threw on June 12, 1970 against the San Diego Padres. The moment was a seminal piece of baseball history and is certainly worthy of being rerun.

Please join us in this cause and sign the petition below so we can all share in this special and fantastic moment of baseball history. THANKS!
