Passion Players

Matt over at gaytlsports.com brought this article to my attention...it's from July's Atlanta Magazine, and features some deliciously gritty pictures of some of our favorite Braves. There's an online interview exclusive with John Smoltz, too. The pictures, though...yummers...












Sorry about the rip on KJ -- the magazine pages were really thin, and I had to remove them from the 'zine to scan.

The hand isn't credited in the photos, but I have it on good authority that it's Smoltzie's hand...and that he's not a freckly guy. (I don't have any problems with freckles -- I was just surprised to see them there and thought it might be Huddy's hand.)

One word: Porn. That's what that is. You're welcome for the freckle info. *ahem* LOL! I wish. :D

As much as I love their choices, I am even more delighted about who they didn't choose. ;) I'll take my broom and ride on outta here now. Heh.

LOVE Huddy's comment about what he'd do if somebody charged the mound. I love that he was honest...but I'd really love to see it. Ya know, one time late in the game when we're up by 20 runs and have a well-rested bullpen (and, of course, no Braves get hurt or suspended). I would pay to see that.

Very funny, Jennifer. I wish you were my informant! I talk to you much more often. :)

Jessica, I too would like to see Huddy in a fight. You have to watch out for those scrappy Southern boys; they'll open a can of whoop--- and take your girl home. :D

What a fantastic picture of Mac (and Smoltzie)...

i would LOVE to see Huddy get in a fight- i bet he fights dirty:)

Jessica said...

I have zero doubt that Huddy could kick a-- in a fight. And, you know there'd be a line behind him of guys who'd have his back...including Mac, Chipper, Kots (apparently), Tex, KJ (I'd pay to see that, too), and of course, Frenchy.

Great pictures and captions.
Just two comments for those on here...
One - does anybody else notice how the only butt that gets slapped at the end of the game is Tex's?
Two - Boog has some muscles...quite a shocker!

CABravesFan said...

allee- have you SEEN Tex's butt?;)

Jessica said...

Ditto, cabravesfan.

Anybody got good pics of Boog? I'd love to see those muscles :)

Allee said...

That is true, CA.
I personally love his rear...
I just didn't realize the rest of Braves loved it so much too. =]

MollyG said...

Jessica, I was just telling my friend that I bet Boog was looking rather buff :) and that is by far one of the sexiest pictures of Smoltz!

Thanks so much for sharing, Lauren. I used to get ATL magazine but it's been years. LOVE the photography. Sorry to hear that Kotsay wasn't exactly thrilled about being traded here?

LOVE HEAP'S ATTITUDE ABOUT EVERYTHING. He is a wise 20-whatever year old. He impresses me more and more every time he speaks. What a great guy.

Jennifer said...

I keep coming back to scroll by that first picture. *drooooool* and *lusssssst*. I'm gonna be sad when it's not the top post anymore.

That is all. Carry on. :D

It's the little white patch in his beard, isn't it? It looks like toothpaste, but has been there for years (so probably not toothpaste). :D

Jennifer said...

Toothpaste. Shame on you. If I didn't have a soft spot for red headed kids, I'd smack you silly for that. :p You know I'm completely fixated on that little patch of gray. I wonder if he has a scar there or something. I don't see gray anywhere else in his beard or in his hair. Not much there to see, I know. Shut it. :p He's making up for that on other parts of his body, it seems. Heh.

And another thing, I adore Mark Kotsay. Love, love, love him, but I've never found him attractive. His hair is just, well, weird, and his teeth are kind of a mess. He doesn't smile much either. However, in that picture, he almost looks yummy. He does have pretty eyes, but I'm usually too busy going, "That hair looks like a really bad toupe." to notice.

Really. That's it. I've probably scared the hell out of all of you, so I'll stop for now. :D
