"Rachel Sterling was very comfortable with taking off her clothes," says photographer Marco Glaviano. The veteran shutterbug joined the up-and-coming starlet for our sultry shoot Rachel 911. Sterling, a former Juggy Dancer, caught our eye in Reno 911! and Wedding Crashers. We expect big things from her five-foot-four frame. "It doesn't matter that she isn't tall, because she has great proportions," Glaviano says. "I also think her good personality, which is true beauty, projects in the photos." Glaviano's pictures have a quiet power. "With my fashion background, I bring a different approach than what's often used for glam shots in glossy magazines," he says. "We tried to make this shoot more stylish. By toning it down and making her the focal point, we made the pictures more alluring. The result strikes a perfect balance between fashionable and sexy."
A few of my fraternity brothers like nothing better than to double-team a girl. It's gotten to the point where they would rather tag-team someone than have sex with her alone. I prefer one-on-one or maybe two girls at once. The last thing I want to see while having sex is my buddy's erection. Am I being too uptight?
"I never knew an early-rising, hardworking, prudent man, careful of his earnings and strictly honest, who complained of bad luck. A good character, good habits and iron industry are impregnable to the assaults of all the ill luck that fools ever dreamed of." Joseph Addison
1. Managers cost their team wins by overmanaging. With teams regularly scoring five or more runs a game, the most precious commodity a manager possesses is a game's 27 outs. It makes no sense to give them up in the early innings with bunts, steal attempts and hit-and-runs. The sacrifice is useful only when one run will win it or the pitcher is at bat. It's no coincidence that stolen-base rates have fallen since the days of Rickey Henderson and Tim Raines. Teams today hit many more home runs, which diminishes the value of gaining one base. During hit-and-runs, runners usually don't sprint with the same gusto they have when trying a straight steal, thus leading to a greater likelihood of being caught stealing. Staying out of the double play is a noble idea, but it doesn't override the risk of erasing a base runner.
A kindergarten class was given a homework assignment to find out about something exciting and relate it to the class the next day. When the time came to present what they'd found, the first little boy walked up to the front of the class and made a small dot on the blackboard. Puzzled, the teacher asked him what it was.
