Ever since I posted all those photos of Alicia Sacremerection, I've been hearing it from all angles. People, not happy about the blatant sexism showed by many of the posters here. I tried to blame it all on Maharg, which worked well for a while, but it's not a complete salve.
I've been hearing a lot of stuff like:
"I often read Deadspin.com, Maxim.com, and WomenAreGeneticallyInferiorToMenAndThat'sJustPlainScientificFact.co.au/index and this was, by, far the most sexist thing I've ever read!"
"I can't believe you wrote that, it's so sexist. And you haven't taken the trash out yet! You better take the trash out! You are sleeping on the couch this week!"
and, of course,
"Twist, this Petition For Administration Of Trust And Court Instructions is total shit. What are you even doing in your office all day, you are so behind on all your work."
So, in the interest of fairness, I thought I should make amends to my female readers (esp. the hot ones, meow!) by putting up some photos similar to Alicia Sacreleotard.
And the best place to find those are, of course, mid 80s International Male catalogues. There's nothing I like more than curling up by a roaring fire to read this month's issue of International Male. I learn so much about linen
So, here you go, ladies, feast your eyes on this studliness from the the 1986 Holiday issue.
And if that's not enough cheesecake, here's some stuff from the 1986 Summer issue.
That one isn't that beefcake-ey, but that tagline at the top is so wildly hilarious I couldn't resist.
So, there you go. We've had a lot of talk of skin tight leotards and asian porn stars with their tits hanging out. Hopefully, this evens it all out. Each page is so amazingly amazing I wanted to link it here, but couldn't. So, don't forget to check out the links to see more.
And speaking of links:
Here is a video of the Olympic village from a Cal perspective.
And a recap of day 12 of the Olympics. No spoilers, of course.
Reminder about donating blood marrow. We discussed it the other day, but it's important, so I wanted to link it again.
Cal water polo is #1!
BRIDGEPORT, PA. - The University of California men's water polo team, winners of the 2006 and 2007 NCAA titles, has been selected as the nation's No. 1 ranked team in the Men's Preseason Collegiate Top 20 Water Polo Poll, it was announced Wednesday, Aug. 20 by the Collegiate Water Polo Association. The Golden Bears received 98 total points, two more than two-time national runner-up USC. Earlier, Cal was picked to finish third in the annual Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Preseason Men's Water Polo Coaches Poll, trailing USC and Stanford.
Cal women's soccer to open season at San Jose State:
BERKELEY, Calif. - BEARS OPEN 2008 AT SAN JOSE STATE: Coming off a 7-0 exhibition win over Saint Mary's, No. 15 California opens the 2008 regular season at San Jose State Sunday, Aug. 24, at 1 p.m. at Spartan Stadium. The Golden Bears, who recorded a 15-5-1 overall record last season and tied for third in the Pac-10 at 6-3, were picked to finish fourth in the 2008 Pac-10 Preseason Coaches' Poll. San Jose State begins its season against Santa Clara Aug. 22. Cal hosts Cal State Fullerton in its regular-season home opener Aug. 29 at 4:30 p.m.
Wrap up of another day of Cal football camp:
BERKELEY - The California football team completed another day of preseason training camp on Wednesday morning at Memorial Stadium, working for two hours in helmets only on mock-game situations.
"I thought it went well [today]," head coach Jeff Tedford said. "I thought there was a lot of focus and attention to detail. For some of the young guys, it's the first time they go through that type of thing. It's a learning situation for them."
Tedford was asked about senior linebacker Anthony Felder, who has been a standout linebacker since his arrival at Cal in 2005, but may not be receiving the same recognition of classmates Zack Follett and Worrell Williams.
"Tony's been around the ball a lot and doing a good job," Tedford said. "He's worked hard through the summer, investing the time, training. He's healthier than he's been. Because he's been injured and missed games [he may get overlooked]."
Okanes talks more about practice:
The Bears followed up Tuesday’s scrimmage with a light practice Wednesday morning, one that really was what coach Jeff Tedford called a “mock game.” The players wore just helmets and went through different kinds of situations that can take place in a game, and did so in chronological order, beginnign with the opening kickoff and ending with quarterback Nate Longshore taking a knee (Bears win!)
I may have posted earlier that the Bears will start planning for Michigan State today. That actually will happen tomorrow. Tedford said the coaching staff was scheduled to have personnel meetings later Wednesday. The implication is depth chart questions will be answered at tomorrow’s practice.
Implementing the game plan means scout teams will have to be set up by tomorrow. We should also get a gauge on starters and backups. That doesn’t necessarily mean there will be a definitive starting quarterback tomorrow, but it could.
This link really slowed up my comp, so watch out, but its more info on MSU.
Okanes writes an article on the LBs:
BERKELEY — Funny thing about the 3-4 defense: You might employ it because you have a deep corps of linebackers, but you might not realize just how many linebackers you need.
The Bears have made the switch from the 4-3 to the 3-4 to take advantage of a set of linebackers rated among the best in the country. But putting an extra linebacker on the field suddenly means you need more bodies to shore up your depth.
Cal appears to be doing that, and one of the reasons is the presence of freshman Mychal Kendricks, who has had as good a camp as anyone on the team. Coach Jeff Tedford said Kendricks will contribute as a true freshman.
"It would be hard to redshirt Mychal Kendricks," defensive coordinator Bob Gregory said. "He's done a really good job and is making plays. We're going to need him."
From yesterday's dump, OskiMontana had some information on the Court case. As football season FINALLY approached and the delays seemed unending, most of us sort of turned our attention away from that situation. But OM has been doing God's Work. He links to some Rivals articles and explains the case in further detail.
Debate divorced from fact serves no one’s interests. The SRC’s commitment to safety and its advisory actions in support of that commitment are guided solely by scientific research. This approach is one of the reasons that Superior Court Judge Barbara Miller recently ruled that “the record contains substantial evidence supporting the university’s decision to build the (athletic facility) as currently proposed.”
BAM! Let's go UC Seismic Safety Panel!
So, there you go. I continue to dominate the battle of DBDs! And for the ladies, a little bit of the delightful man-muscle to get you through your day. Your unendingly sexist day. Believe me, I know how it feels to be treated just like a piece of meat, appreciated solely for your physical characteristics.
And boy is it fun!
So, if you see a Cal-related link, bring that bad boy (excuse me, bad person) on over, so we can discuss it. Go Bears! Dump away!
