In an attempt to draw attention away from ARod's newfound ugliness, I'm presenting Pete Rose as my first handsome nominee from the archives.

This is Pete Rose exhibiting the superhuman feat of diving/sliding/flying toward a base.

He's also the only baseball player I know of to hold ranks with the likes of Jackie O and Diane Von Furstenberg with his Andy Warhol portrait.

I'm trying to think of a clever title for my next post but I think Wade Boggs sums it up. DIBS

    *I'm not sure if this is real or not.

  4. Hi Jenni! good to be here.
    I saw that picture of P.R. in his underpants and decided it was much too R-rated for my first post.
    But from this point on, consider me no-holds-barred..........
