Katie Hoff Breaks Record With Speedo LZR Racer Swimsuit

Congratulations goes to the new 400m IM world record holder Katie Hoff.  Without a doubt, some credit goes to the low-drag Speedo LZR Racer Swimsuit she was wearing. Nevertheless, she is a powerful swimmer.

The important questions to ask are this fair and is she any faster than a swimmer 20 years ago not using this swimsuit?

Since technology continues improve, I doubt that her record will stand very long.  You can only push the human body to certain limits.  All other records in the past 20 years were the result of some advancement in science whether that’s in a form of Speedo LZR swimsuit or some other enhancement.

But what other alternatives do athletes have? We can’t have them racing around naked can we?  This of course would yield the true measure of the human body and we would have records that only the brave and modest would attain.

But I doubt that we would see Katie Hoff or any other swimmer in this form outside of Naked Olympics.  While her record stands for the moment, it will not last long and will be broken again this summer in China.

Diablo 3’s Release Date Still Undecided

Blizzard Announces Diablo III

Yes it’s true Diablo fans, Diablo III is real and from the looks of it should be out by Christmas 2008. Now Blizzard hasn’t committed to an official date since:

It’s too early to estimate Diablo III’s release date. As with all Blizzard Entertainment games, our goal is to create a game that is as fun, balanced, and polished as possible. We intend to take as much time developing Diablo III as is necessary to ensure the game meets our own high expectations and those of our players.

But as you can see from the gameplay trailers, Blizzard has invested large amounts of time into the project and a release is just around the corner.

Verne “Mini Me” Troyer Sex Tape Loses Its Mojo

Good news for Verne “Mini Me” Troyer who received a restraining order against distribution of the sex tape of he and his ex-girlfriend.  The 25 second intro on TMZ was too much for me.

I just don’t understand why these stars have some desire to make a video that they know will expose themselves to embarrassment and shame. In my honest opinion, the world doesn’t need a voyeur Troyer sex tape.

Lara Logan’s Swimsuit Causes Affair

Lara “34d” Logan and her shapely swimsuit body is at the top of the of the Hollywood Sex Scandal list. The rumor of multiple affairs while acting as a CBS occupation reporter in IRAQ and Afghanistan may or may not be true, but it’s not hard to see why any male would not want her after seeing pictures of her in her swimsuit.

Now I don’t blame Lara Logan for being beautiful, but some how I gotta believe that the pictures of the former swimsuit model causes every man to lust after her causing so much pressure that she breaks down to have an affair.

Tim McGraw Fights With Fan

The McGraw couple are a couple of fighters. First you have Faith Hill defending her husband after a over zealous fan grabs Tim’s crotch and now Tim McGraw comes to the rescue of a damsel in distress at his Auburn Washington Tuesday fight night.

Now it wasn’t much of a fight, but it took Tim McGraw, two security guards and who knows how many fans below to lift this beer-belly fan onto the stage for ejection. But McGraw managed to complete his song “Indian Outlaw” without missing a beat.

Seattle Mariners Pitcher Felix Hernandez Hits Grand Slam

My baseball cap off to Felix Hernandez. It’s not everyday that a pitcher hits a home run but Hernandez, a
Seattle Mariners pitcher, became the first American League pitcher in 37 years hit a grand slam.

Hernandez hit the grand slam during the second inning of the Major League Baseball game against the New York Mets at Shea Stadium.

Can You Find the Rabbit on Cindy Margolis?

It took a bit of time — and a little hunting around — to find the hidden rabbit on Cindy Margolis in the July issue of Playboy. I finally found the little fury creature after looking at all the wrong places. Here’s a clue: where do rabbits hide?

So if your head has been in the rabbit hole and don’t know who Cindy is, Cindy Margolis is a supermodel, actress, producer, author and mother.

IMO, her most important role was a Fembot in “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery,” where she was “just groovy baby.” But later, and appropriate roles on Bay Watch were equal important to get her some exposure, if you know what I mean.

Cindy Margolis grew up in the San Fernando Valley with hopes of being a Hollywood star and began modeling for her own greeting card line. With her natural beauty, it wasn’t too long before she was noticed.

Besides her modeling career, Ms. Margolis is an author who wrote “Having a Baby – When the Old Fashioned way isn’t working”. Her book is scheduled for release at the end of this year.
