The Troika split it between Maine’s bad night and Carl “Mr. Alyssa Milano” Pavano’s good night. Here they come. Hotter than the ladies of “Charmed”. Your Backpages…

Sending It Up to Having No Shame, Part 2

by Backpageman on August 24, 2008

Last week, Backpageman sent it up to the Daily News for this shameless photo gallery on Olympic pieces of ass. Newsday just added one of their own. The intro sounds like classic Massapequan for “no I wasn’t staring at your ass. I was admiring your beauty”: “As the quest for the gold and glory in the Beijing Games continues, we stop a moment to celebrate the beauty of the participants.” Uh huh. And, by the way, does mustache + speedo = beauty on Long Island?
The gallery is here.

A little weekend catch-up for Backpageman. Johan owned the Backpages again. Tip of the Swami turban to James S, who’c closing in on the great Tom E, for Swami dominance. He nailed this one with COMING UP ACES. They’re not looking back. They’re looking forward. Your Backpages…

Mets with a big — and lucky win — against the Braves, and The Troika likes what it sees. Backpageman thought the Backpages would go more historical. BRAVE NEW WORLD or something of the like.But they went for the game or streak story, two staples of Backpageology. Dig, set, SPIKE. Here are your Backpages.

Sending It Up to Having No Shame

by Backpageman on August 21, 2008

Backpageman sends it up to the Daily News for taking a page from the Post with the Women of the Games and the Men of the Games picture galleries. The women are here and the men here. Be prepared to shake your head in disappointment again and again. Oh, and yes, that woman is indeed wearing the Traditional Dress of Brazil… The wedgie…

As a Ph.D in Backpageology, there are not too many mornings when Backpageman is truly surprised by the Backpages. Today is one of those mornings. An admiring tip of the Swami turban to the Post for not only the slightly lascivious HAPPY ENDING Backpage but a picture of Mike Pelfrey getting spanked. Hey now. Also, please note that just as A-Rod = all things bad in Yankeeland, Jeter = all things good. And, yes, Jeter has totally got an Edge. Thank you , Sir, may I have another… Backpage.

A downright gleeful night for Metropolitan Backpageologists. A good win over the Braves and a bad Yankee loss to the Jays. The schadenfreude in some of the guesses, while hilarious, may be a little premature. It’s still August, and Benny Ayala is probably not Bruce Sutter, circa 1982. And the irony of it all, a Yankee partisan, the undefatigable Tom E did it again with JOHNNY BE BAD. Don’t blame A-Rod, Heroes. Here they are. Your Backpages.

Sending It up to Texas

by Backpageman on August 19, 2008

If there’s one thing that Backpageman loves more than the Backpage game, it’s Texas, or the idea of Texas. And nothing captures the dream of being a long-hair-having, football-playing, pick-up driving, Tyra Collette-dating Texan like Friday Night Lights, a truly great show that apparently nobody watches. That said, Backpageman sends it up the first ladies of Dillon. Thanks to Alvaro for the picture. Clear eyes, full hearts…. CAN’T LOSE.

Post and News go with Met bullpen blowing another one in Pittsburgh, but after going 6-1 on the road trip, even the bottom-feeders on the Backpages having a hard time going after the Mets. The real gem of the day is Newsday’s NOT JOE’S FAULT. As you recall, on August 14th, Backpageman wrote this: “In a related story, Joe Torre has led the Dodgers into a tie for first place. Look for the ST. JOE VS FLATTOP JOE Backpage in the coming days.” Well, when Backpageman calls it, Backpageman will tell you he called it. It’s amazing. Even from L.A., St. Joe can do no wrong. Genuflect when you enter, Heroes, and remember it is right to give thanks and praise… to your Backpages.
