But Wait I Can Explain…

Ok, just for the record I am not a complete chauvinist pig… _you have no idea what I’m talking about right?_ I was a guest presenter on the most excellent sports podscast the “Skinny on Sports”:http://www.skinnyonsports.com/ for their “awards show the Skinnies”:http://www.skinnyonsports.com/2005/03/23/the-skinnies/ and during my announcement of Hottest Female Athlete I said “Maria Sharapova – she’s seventeen, but as long as there is grass on the field…”

If you listen to the skinny on sports, like I do, you might know that Maria Sharapova is a tennis player and a very good one at that. I was only commenting that as long as there is grass on the field… she can play tennis… This of course is completely incorrect, as an athlete playing tennis she can also play on astroturf or clay. I just wanted to make this appology to anyone female or not, who felt I was discriminating against those that play on alternative surfaces. Again I oppologise.

So please allow me this slight correction “as long as there is an appropriate surface to play tennis on.”

Please go take a listen to the “Skinney on Sports”:http://www.skinnyonsports.com/ and thank you Skinneys!

    Oh, the big D knows, and she's not ever so pleased. What do you think that girl's father would say after hearing Funtime B. objectify his daughter? A woman earns a place in sports for the big payoff, apparently–to be rated for her tits, ass, and pretty face. Way to go, and announced by my domestic partner–bonus! Funtime Diane's hackles are all up in a bunch. Pepper and I are officially sleeping in the other room. And watching The Outsiders shower scene over, and over, and over again.

  5. I guess some people just don't like tennis.

    Oh Ben, I so have your back on this one. You know what I say: If they're old enough to crawl, they're in the right position.

  7. Diane is one of the coolest funniest people I have ever met!

    You are lucky to have her, and your punishment should be watching

    that shower scene with her over and over again.

    Go ahead, run off and get married, leaving Ben and I to peruse old issues of Teen Sports Illustrated.
