Australian surfer Mick Fanning won the Hang Loose Catarina Pro event in Brazil yesterday beating out defending two-year title holder Kelly Slater and fellow Aussie Taj Burrows to clinch the 2007 World Championship. You cannot see him from here on the shore, but trust me when I say he’s everything a blonde, blue-eyes Australian surfer should look like.

OK, don’t trust me.


David Beckham is still over here in North America playing soccer? Really? Where is all the press? Where is the red carpet? Does ESPN still mention him every night on Sportscenter?

Ohhh… He’s playing in an exhibition game tonight with the Galaxy in Vancouver. Uh, yes. Thrilling. Yes. Vancouver Whitecaps. I am sure they are quite good. Up there with um… some Italian junior league.

When does he go back to England again?

Saints QB Drew Brees and former Saints QB Bobby Hebert launched Gridiron Wine Cellars with the proceeds to benefit the Brees Dream Foundation and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Quick! Without looking at the bottle which one is the Chardonnay?

The Islanders three goal third period surge was enough to take down the Rangers in a 3-2 victory on Tuesday night. Don’t care too much about this game, but just really wanted to post this great picture of Ben Walter.

No look pass? LeBron makes it look easy as he scored 24 points, grabbed 14 rebounds, and had 9 assists in the Cavs 108-104 win over Golden State.

    that surfer dude is a little too “jason blake” for my taste

  2. thistlewarrior says:

    I must have that wine, preferably with a slice of Bree(s)! (OK that would have worked better if his name was spelled Bries, oh well.)

    Abs. love that pic of Ben Walter; fantastic photography.

    And LeBron is just cute as button!

  3. Clare says:

    That picture of Little David Beckham is just so sad. “Don’t you want to take my picture? Surely you do, eh wot?”

  4. Yeah, little Mick is a bit too “Village of the Damned” for me…

    Also, why is his face 3 shades lighter than his body? Haven’t we learned about selecting the proper foundation?

  5. I just assumed he put too much sunscreen on his face while the rest all wore off his body.

  6. DougOLis says:

    Dude looks like an albino.

    Bobby Ebert looks kind of like Eric Ripert in that picture.

  7. Slothrop says:

    Is it the photo or do Bobby and Drew have gigantic mitts? Those things look like they could crush cars.

  8. metschick says:

    A wee bit too blond for my tastes, but I love his eyes.

    And I can’t tell which is the bottle of chardonnay. I know fuck all about wine other than there’s red wine & white wine.

    Teach me! Refine me!

  9. Brees is holding the Chardonnay.

    This was funny to me at 4:30 in the morning for some reason.

  10. metschick says:

    You guys think I’m joking. I’m serious. I go out with people who know wine, I’d like to know the simple stuff. Please help.

  11. metschick says:

    DougO: to my amateur eye, it looks as if Drew’s bottle is a bit translucent.

  12. DougOLis says:

    I didn’t follow the link, so I could be off here, but isn’t Drew holding a Pinot Noir. The bottles are very similar shapes (are they the same?), but Chardonnay bottles are usually greenish and translucent while Pinot Noirs are dark and opaque. His bottle appears to be the latter.

  13. Doug – Chardonnay. You can see through the bottle.

  14. prystline says:

    Vancouver has a soccer team?

  15. DougOLis says:

    Ahh, yeah, there’s his thumb. I thought you couldn’t because it was against his black jacket.

  16. IJustMadeThatUp says:

    Canadians have soccer teams, but most of the time they play on frozen tundra and complain regularly about getting muddy.

    Does Lebron look more than a little proud of his no-look pass there, or is it just me? That, “Damn am I THAT GOOD?” look.
