The St. Louis Cardinals have reclaimed first place in the NL Central thanks to a six-game winning streak, which included a four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Dodgers to start the second half of the baseball season. The Cardinals are now a half-game up on the Cincinnati Reds, who are also playing great baseball right now. Some might claim that St. Louis has found its balance of power hitting and precision pitching that was expected of the Cardinals coming into the season, but I say: “Blah blah blah, Anna Kournikova is still a hot piece of sexy wonderful.”
Anna threw out the first pitch of Saturday’s Cardinals/Dodgers game at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, and the Cardinals went on to win 2-0. Kournikova plays for the St. Louis Aces as part of the World TeamTennis organization, which is basically like extreme tennis. So it includes a DJ between plays, coed play and high-fiving. Kournikova’s other female teammate is former No. 1 women’s player Lindsay Davenport (not pictured, because she’s not Anna Kournikova), who has been limited in tournament play since having a kid a few years ago.
Kournikova, of course, was a disappointing professional tennis player and never won a Grand Slam title, but she skirted by on her angelic looks so we forgive her for angering women’s tennis purists. She’s also married to Enrique Iglesias, who willingly creates crap like this:
I’m sorry, I just needed that painful reminder that life isn’t fair.
