Belarus Women’s Basketball Team Pose For Sexy Calendar

Belarus Women’s Basketball Team Pose For Sexy Calendar

 
 

These pictures are pretty much the death knell for the theory that all female basketball players are unattractive.  sure the WNBA doesn't have a whole lot of lookers in the traditional sense (or any sense really), but at the college level and the international level, there are clearly some beauties out there that are failing to be recognized.  The Belarus Ladies Basketball team is the latest in a string of sexy women in basketball.

I don't know much about these women, but in the past unearthing gorgeous women in basketball has been difficult.  It is tough to tell how attractive they are when they are wearing their basketball gear and even when one is found, its just one.  The Belarus team appears to be littered with beautiful women.  All 12 women on the team are posing for different months and they all are attractive on some level, though admittedly some are more so than others.

Why can't the WNBA find these women?  Is the level of play so high and the feminism so stubborn that the league and the women themselves can't try to profit off of their looks?  My argument stands that these women probably would have a shot in the league talent-wise to at least sit on the bench, but that might be enough to sell extra tickets.

I mean, I would definitely go see the Belarus team play, but I have never been to a Phoenix Mercury or Chicago Sky game.  Enough said.

Recognizing the importance of fostering quality international relations through sporting activities, I felt that I would be remiss if I did not showcase this effort on Belarus' part at reaching across cultural divides.  As evidenced by the physical demeanor of their sporting Ambassadors, they obviously are committed to warm interpersonal relations with other nations and I would wish to suggest that our State Department invite them to America for several games.  As a personal gesture of international goodwill, I will do my patriotic duty and offer my own home for them to stay in for the duration of their visit.

Uh ... as much as I love the female form, threads like this one are the type that just keep bringing the level of seriousness down here on Free Republic. Almost akin to something out of a British lad’s mag. Please direct some respect toward the female members here on FR who may just get offended. Thanks.

The single-most gorgeous girl I've ever seen live-up-close-and-personal was a Lady Tar Heel basketball player back home on Christmas break, waiting for her luggage at the claim area.

6'5” and wearing her uniform - no sweats.

They're still pumping the drool out of the terminal...

Bloody hell - I am emigrating - where are my Converse hi tops.

It can’t be any colder than N Florida tonight. Bring on global warming. I am sure they are all less communist than the muslim in the white hut.

The women in Ukraine too and also the Baltic countries neighboring Scandinavia. Lots of beautiful women.

Have the greatest respect for the females on this forum.

In this time of ultimate seriousness with the the economy, the out-of-control government, and the Marxist usurper in the White House, a few distractions are not only in order, but welcome.

You are welcome ... hey, I love the beauty of the female form as much as any other hetero male, but this stuff has got to either be pared back just a wee bit, or something to that effect via the mods. Just a bit of common courtesy to the other members here. That’s all. No malice or “holier than thou” feelings directed at anyone here, just keep it clean. That’s all.

Yeah - you are right this must stop.

Back to the Chet’s pitbull stories, the crap about the NFL (which loves Obama and hates Rush), meaningless college ball games, Rick Warren and Osteen huckster devotionals, grannies pie cobbler, the guy with the Russian jet stories, the stupid satires that waste many people’s time, the gun threads (I do like those), crap about stupid Avatar, can’t find any ammo threads, the woman defending pitbulls, etc etc.

Call me a “lad” or even lager lout. Bring more of this Baltic region cheer. These gals are trying to spread capitalism by selling their calendar while Obama is jamming communism down our throat.

Your commitment to public safety and welfare is admirable.  I believe that I can set up one of the rooms in my house to serve as a 'Cylon examination checkpoint'....it features a nice stereo, comfortable furnishings and a bar.  What a great suggestion, thank you :-)

Your reply has merit to it with regard to all of the other threads that you mentioned, however, I just think that some common courtesy should be extended to the other half (women) who frequent this online forum. That’s all. ;-)

I think you set up a false dichotomy- you seem to suggest the choices are between salacious photos of women or pitbulls, NFL drivel etc. I routinely read material here that fall into neither category.

For me, a women, the title ‘sexy calendar’ text implies a level of explicitness common to TV guide or Sports Illustrated. But then I check the thread and it really is more appropriate for mens magazines - not something you’d leave on the coffee table for the family to see, not something I want to see. I don’t think it reflects well on FR.
Perhaps, as a courtesy to the mixed company environment we have here on FR, this kind of stuff could be put in a locker room type thread specifically for ‘adults’ or something more descriptive to indicate what the viewer will find?

Asking for consideration for the public commons draws responses implying that it’s either THIS or NFL drivel or better yet - that I am a burka wearing muslim....just for asking for considerate behavior for a mixed company environment? Was it because I asked that the threads be identified more clearly? Yes -I think that is ‘typical’ of Burqa wearing prudes.........../s

Thank you for your kind words :-)

You and others who are interested in international relations and cross-cultural diplomacy may be interested in this FR thread from 2008 which features, among other things, a highly skilled Russian Representative who obviously has a natural ability with communication.  Another truly fine Ambassador from this region.

Hey ... I have no need to “prove” myself to you, nor to disseminate a lie to you regarding myself. Just seen the level of tact here kind of go off into poor territory with posts like this or comments to the type of “I’d hit it” or “I’d do it” and so on. Not really in the “spirit” of what this site was founded upon and created for.

I’m a female and I’m not offended. People who are going to get offended have the option of not clicking on the link; the headline on the thread was pretty up-front about what was going to be here.

Frankly, I click on these things because seeing other women who are lovely and in great shape inspires me to exercise, keep my hair and skin looking good, discipline myself about holiday food, and exercise some more.
