And we're done in one.

Was gonna say so long as this showcases the D-cup list, count me in.

How is Capriati "d-list"? Unless your name is Natrilova or the german chick who married Agassi, being a top-ranked women's tennis player doesn't exactly have a long shelf life.

I totally had a crush on Dan Cortese back in the day....as long as I'm right that he's the MTV sports guy. *rawr*

Capriati is more than likely headed to the Hall of Fame.

This just in: that's not the D list.

The dorito's girl will be on there....

I went to a taping of BONS back around 1980. It was filmed at Pepperdine University. Howard Cosell was pissing everybody off.

"And Susan Richardson of "Eight is Enough" is here today. Susan, is a proud new mother of a baby girl, whom I did not sire."

She replied with "Shut up, Howard, you asshole."

They did another take.

I remember getting excited when I got Jan Smithers' autograph (Bailey from WKRP.)

A friend and I were just talking about how they should bring back "The battle of the network stars"

Loved that show when I was 15, 16. I know who Capriati is, but never heard of the other 2 in subby's headline. Guess that's why they're on the D list.

Will she be holding her crack pipe, or will it be in her mouth?

Does this mean Charvet won't be on Melrose Place 2?
 
2009-04-21 07:14:27 PM  
Am I the only person who has no idea who any of these people are?

It's kind of sad that the most recognizable name on the list for me is the star of ANOTHER reality show (Maks).

For a minute I thought the headline meant "Superstars Challenge" but then I read what it really was and was all "meh".


Now, a Superstars Challenge comprised solely of athletes of different disciplines would rock something fierce. I still remember Jason Sehorn dominating the competition in the 90's, and love the stories about how after being so dominant in the 80's the competition had to institute the "Brian Budd rule".

Here to re-iterate--Capriatti is NOT D list.

Didn't Kyle Rote, Jr. dominate for a couple of the early years?

I'll admit that I've heard their names in passing but I'd fail miserably if I were asked to pick them out of a police lineup.

It's entirely possible. The name does sound familiar.

Aside from Capriati, the only name that rung a bell was that of Estella Warren:

A quick GIS for Brandi Chastain will tell you why this is A FARKING BRILLIANT IDEA!

/Brandi rawr goodness (NSFW if an incredibly hot naked athlete covering her girly parts is not accepted in your office.)

No love for the Battle of the Network T's and A's?

It'll never top when Mr. Kotter embarrassed Robert Conrad in the 100 meters. Epic ass-kicking.

Randy and Jason Sklaar will have a job again! Thank God!

Swimming or sprint?

I am quite happily shocked to find that I am not the only Capriati fan (although please dear jeebus don't let her speak!). Chastain alone makes this worth a watch for me.

/moar hot soccer chicks!

Yes on the Brandy Chastain. Was just in the Mia Hamm building recently.
