  4. Oh baby, come to daddy. I've got something big for you.

  5. Dont' feel dirty, PETERPARKER, you can look at him. It's not like you're looking at him in a public park or anything. That would be filthy!

    He has nice nipples though, and of course a nice bulge. Watermelons must be ripe down in Georgia.

  6. Very bargain-basement Tom Brady.

    But then I love a discount.

  7. Bruce Weber does homoerotica as commercial better than anyone, wonder why they don't use him more? No one "bester" than Bester.

  8. I suppose I could research this but I want to know if it's the Republic of Georgia, or the State of Georgia. If it's the State of Georgia, I may have to try to meet him when I'm visiting family...

  9. Oh, nevermind me. I clicked the Link and I'm in luck.

  11. If he's only 19, he needs daddy to give him a lot of teaching on how to make a man happy.

  12. Is it me, or does the band of his unders say "Bear"? and I know it's silly that if it does, it kinda thrills me a little.

  13. He plays for Life Univ. so he's here in Atlanta. I think I'll go do him now.

  15. Remind me to start practicing rugby!

  16. And the South rises again. I swear there's something in the water down there.

    Anyone else notice he bares a striking resemblance to Patriots QB Tom Brady? He could be Brady's little brother. Do with that what you will.

  17. "Bester, Dester, Fester, Hester, Jester, Kester, LESTER! LESTER! VICKI LESTER!"

  18. Chas, great observation. Same faces over and over again.

    Posted by: soulbrotha | Jul 9, 2008 2:17:02 PM

  19. Gee, SOULBROTHA#1, do ya think there's a pattern going on with the kinds of guys we see here? ;)

    Posted by: Chas | Jul 9, 2008 2:48:08 PM

  20. I'm not denying that he's hot, but I'm surprised that the lighting in some of the pics on the link Crispy posted is rather unflattering. He still looks great, but much better in some pictures than others.

  21. I've missed the hot Sportraits! I know this will sound weird, but I like the pic with the coat the best. Of course he is a hunk non the less.

    Posted by: Rafael | Jul 9, 2008 4:37:20 PM

  22. Heavens to betsy, Chas! What could you POSSIBLY be insinuating? Tee hee!

    Posted by: soulbrotha | Jul 9, 2008 4:49:36 PM

  23. Well, I just got finished looking up my own Sportraits...on Youtube. His name is Nelson Evora, and oh, honey! He's a track-n-field guy of African-Portuguese stock aiming for the Olympics, and oh, honey! Y'all know I'm not a size queen. I'm not. I'm not. I'm not, but oh, honey!

    SOULBROTHA and CHAS, look up Nelson Evora--y'all won't be disappointed...neither will my dear THE QUEEN. Oh, honey!

  24. As strange as it may seem... Has Bruce Weber ever come out of the closet? If not, it's SO fucking pathetic, shades of Calvin Klein, fucking 1980's cowards!!! Dried up desiccated fags... just own up to your Homo-Fabulous, you guys are too rich and too powerful to really care what "straight" society thinks of you. I dare you... Come out of the fucking closet you low life queens!!!

    Posted by: Scrufff | Jul 9, 2008 10:19:26 PM

  25. I do declare, Mr. Derrick! I believe I have case of the vapors!
