Yeah, the title is pretty crass, but the point remains: Thanks to keen eye from ESPN’s de facto quality control group — Awful Announcing — we now have even more reason to enjoy Erin Andrews, who’s obviously enjoying her upcoming Title Town/Gainesville segment.
Speaking of, I do have a question: is it considered favoritism to have an ESPN employee be a spokesperson — or a presenter for that matter — for the nominees of this silly Title Town business if they themselves attended the school that made the area under consideration famous? If not, why didn’t Stuart Scott get to do Chapel Hill?
In case you’ve been living in a “no sports” cave for awhile, Andrews is a Florida graduate and was a member of their dance team.
By now, you’ve probably seen the pictures of Laisa Andrioli, a 20-year old soccer player for Brazil’s National Women’s team, going around the net. If not, you are in for a treat, especially when you consider her apparent allergies to articles of clothing. That’s right, Laisa made headlines and heads turn as she appeared in a men’s magazine wearing, well, not much at all… except maybe her Sunday suit.
Really, I can’t think of anything else to add except for the fact that I could only find a couple of images to share with you because of her fondness of nudity. Although, the thought occurred to me that we could maybe get away with some pixelization if necessary. Alas, wiser heads prevailed so I’ll just leave you with these two images but I would suggest you checking out the rest of her pictorial.
It’s well worth the visit, as long as you won’t get into trouble. Congratulations on your IEC award, Laisa. Let’s hope there are more contributions from you or your teammates.
You may remember our bikini-clad friend above from the 2006 World Cup. I believe she was at the Italy game or perhaps the Ghana match. Anyway, have a great Memorial Day weekend and be safe. If you need some more American flag bikini goodness, here’s a very patriotic Heidi Montag.
We at IntentionalFoul.com are big fans of Gina Carano, so you can imagine our excitement when we came across a Muscle & Fitness video of Gina working out as she trains for her MMA career. Remember, she’s not just an American Gladiator. In the video Gina, who is 4-0 as a MMA participant, demonstrates some of the techniques she uses all while maintaining her incredibly attractive appearance.
Nothing from nothing, but I’m think the guy she’s sparring with is one lucky SOB. It’s not everyday a guy gets to have Gina Carano’s legs wrapped around them… OK, I may have embellished that thought a little, but you get the idea. While she’s still American Gladiating, Gina’s also preparing for a May 31st MMA bout with Kaitlin Young, which will be shown on the CBS premiere of EliteXC Saturday Night Fights.
I just hope they make liberal use of their leg grappling skills.
Ever since the announcement that American Gladiators was coming back to the boob tube, a great deal of the focus has been on Gina Carano, AKA Crush and that’s something we can certainly get support. Because ABC is all about marketing their product, they’ve introduced a little “getting to know the Gladiators” segment and thanks to Ultimate MMA Video blog, we can now share the Crush interview.
Fans of Gina won’t be disappointed. At all.
Update – The original video was removed before it could be transported over to YouTube. To compensate, I’m using the above interview of Crush and Wolf talking about their dating lives, among other things.
One thing’s for sure, there are a lot more hotter women’s tennis players than we are led to believe. One such player we’ve already discussed in Elena Dementieva; and now we have Alona Bondarenko (Hooked on Fonix werked 4 me), another stunner from the Slavic region of the globe.
In Alona’s case, she rose to blogger fame on the strength of her K-Swiss advertisement (above) that showed up a little while ago, well, that and her ability to hit a tennis ball. However, in the case of the blogosphere, it was probably more for the K-Swiss image.
Eh, we are what we are. Without further adieu, I present more Alona Bondarenko. Congratulations on your IEC award.
Bonus: a video comparison of Alona and Maria Sharapova for your Friday enjoyment.
No cheer positions are being cut but some of the more athletic activities such as stunts and tumbling were being eliminated for safety reasons. That might mean that some cheerleaders whose strength was in the athletic areas may not make the new squad — I have no idea.
The photo in question appeared just recently on the Internet. A univeristy official confirmed that the women were either former or current squad members. The decision on the cheerleading squad coming under different oversight was announced mid-week. A university spokesman said the timing of the two events was “totally coincidental.”
So there you have it. I guess this is good news for all the other cheerleading squads that are wanting to have some sexy time, complete with digital cameras, MySpace, Facebook and Flickr.
