Remember Amanda Beard? I didn’t really either. But I kind of remember the name from a few years back. So that prompted me to do some research on the old internet. Turns out she is an Olympic medalist in swimming. And she’s also easy on the eyes. And now she’s nude in Playboy.

Amanda Beard in Playboy

I can hear all the feminists now. And to a certain degree, I understand their frustration. To have one of their own, a role model to young girls, degrade herself to the entertainment of men everywhere. But let me ask you this: Would it not be a greater crime to conceal all this? I mean, look at her! Wow.

Amanda Beard in FHM

I have to admit this. I think she will look better in her pictorial from FHM (above) than she will in Playboy. But I will have to see to be sure. I’ve always been one to enjoy a little to the imagination. But not too much. :)

What I do like about Amanda Beard is that she is realistic. In an interview about her Playboy spread, she says the following:

You have to remember, I’m still just a swimmer. I am living a great lifestyle and I’m making good money, but I’m not a basketball player. These deals are not $40 million deals.

And she’s absolutely right. She is a swimmer. And a good one. But there isn’t a great demand for swimmers in the entertainment field. So unless she is going to night school to become a CPA or something, how is she going to support herself? I know she has some cash, but give her credit for thinking ahead.

She has a God given talent that made her famous. So I don’t see anything wrong with her cashing in on her other gift from the Man upstairs. And thankfully she does it now before that gift is not so… nice.

Good for you Amanda! And better yet, good for us!

I don’t want to get too excited, but I think I’m over my cold.

Wow. This has got to be the biggest sign that I am getting old. A cold like that one used to take 4, maybe 5 days to beat. But this one took about 8 days to get over. I guess the old immune system ain’t what it used to be.

And damn it sucked. Sore throat. Headaches. Coughing. Congestion. And to top it off, I hurt my arm playing softball last week. So I haven’t been sleeping well because I keep rolling over on it. Ow.

So I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to take more vitamins. And maybe eat more vegetables. Maybe go visit the doc on a more regular basis. Drink more orange juice. Feel free to add to my list…
