Top Naked Athletes of 2006
In truth, 2006 wasn’t the best year for naked athletes, but there were a few great moments, including a streaker at Wimbledon. And streakers getting tasered at a demolition derby. And Anna Benson posing naked for the cover of Sporting News. Come to think of it, 2006 was a GREAT year for naked athletes and sports. Now, put your pants back on and get back to work!
UPDATE: Video of Wimbledon Streaker Surfaces – This one has his nasty parts blurred, but if you don’t mind waiting through 8 minutes of French TV coverage, you can see an unedited version of the streaker who ran out onto the court at the All England Club during a match between Russian beauties Maria Sharapova and Elena Dementieva here.
HS Drill Team Hazing: Girls Force to Run Naked Across Football Field – It’s not just the sports teams getting in on the fun hazings anymore: police in Pleasant View, Utah are looking into allegations that new members of the Weber High School drill team (insert your own joke here) were force to run naked across the football field as part of an initiation. Now, before your brain really starts spinning, this happened at night with no one watching . . . or taking pictures that could be posted on the Internet . . . at least that we know of so far.

Demolition Derby Streaker Video Shows Cops Repeatedly Punching Naked Man While He Was Pinned to the Ground – We admit it: we watch a lot of the TV show COPs and can’t remember ever seeing officers of the law beat on a naked man like the cops do in video clip taken last weekend in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. As you may have read Monday (see story below), for the second year in a row there was a streaker at the Teton County Fair’s demolition derby (the “climax of the fair” according to reports). And for the second year in a row, police officers are accused of overreacting to the incident. Last year they tazered the guy; this year after Seamus McKinney allegedly ran naked across the arena he ended his jog by trying to run over cops guarding the only exit. In the video hosted by our new friends at Planet Jackson Hole (which we watched like a bad train wreck several times) you see Seamus running across the dirt track toward the camera which just happens to be next to the only exit in the arena. He stumbles and falls face first into the dirt once (that’s gotta hurt!), then gets up looking dazed and heads right toward the cops, putting his head down and bowling several of them over before they wrestle him to the ground. They appear to have him subdued, but the “cop in the white hat” delivers a couple of punches to the guy’s ribs, just to be sure. You can hear the person shooting the video remark about their good fortune at being in the perfect location to film this. (At right are still images from the tape.) Was it police brutality or is the naked guy resisting arrest? You be the judge! WARNING: The site has the video in raw, unedited form and it contains nudity, profanity and violence . . . so enjoy! Oh, and it’s probably Not Safe For Work in case you hadn’t already figured that out.
UPDATE: Sheriff Reviews Video, Likes What He Sees – From this mornings Planet Jackson Hole: After reviewing a video of the alleged streaking and subsequent arrest of McKinney, Teton County Sheriff Bob Zimmer approved of the way Deputy Todd Stanyon handled the situation, including the four very visible punches delivered to the ribs from behind after McKinney had been forced to lie face down in the dirt. “I think his behavior in apprehension was very appropriate,” Zimmer said.
BadJocks Special Update: The Boys Posed Topless, Why Can’t We?
Late last week (see story below) we reported on the girls hockey team at Hjalmar Lundbohmsskolan in Sweden that wanted to be just like the boys team. So when they guys posed for a team photo for the yearbook wearing only protective leg pads, ice skates and nothing else, the girls thought they should do the same. The administration at their school thought otherwise and pulled the picture without telling them, angering the team and prompting claims of discrimination. Well, a BadJocks reader found an online Swedish newspaper that posted the reasonably safe for work picture of the team, along with the story. Which, if you can read Swedish, you might find out more about what’s going on. Still, some of the girls look uncomfortable posing and most of them look pretty cold. (Aften Bladet)
Best Sports Wife/Stripper Ever? Anna Benson Appears Naked on Cover of Sporting News “Best” Issue – According to the Sporting News press release, the cover of August 11 “Best Issue” features the wife of Orioles pitcher Kris Benson wearing only “a few well-placed baseballs.” Why is the former stripper turned poker champ so prominently featured? She’s there because the issue also lists sports’ best “hell-raisers,” and she somehow made the list (and we didn’t), along with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Johnson, among others. Fans of BadJocks will remember that at one time, when Kris was pitching for the Mets, Anna told Howard Stern that she would sleep with the entire team–batboys and managers included–if she ever caught her husband cheating on her.

Stupid HS Streaker Arrested Before He Can Collect $20 Bet – Boys and girls, let your old Uncle Bob share a little hard-earned wisdom with you: if you’re going to streak a high school sporting event to win a bet, be sure to collect the money BEFORE you run naked across the field . . . even if you have to keep it in your mouth. Otherwise, you might end of like Graham Weiner (yep, that’s his real name), a junior at Fairfield Warde High School, who was offered $20 to run naked during a recent baseball game against Ludlow High School. According to police Weiner ran from the third-base dugout to the first-base dugout naked and was promptly arrested . . . before he could collect his winnings. Weiner was charged with breach of peace and released after posting a $500 bond. (Connecticut Post)
HS Football Streaker Pleads Guilty to Disorder Conduct Charge – You may remember the story of a teenaged boy at Bentonville High School in Arkansas who ran across the football field during a game wearing only a bandanna over his face and what appeared to be underwear and shoes. Seemed like he had a great getaway plan: I mean, who would be able to follow in after he scaled a chain link fence on stadium’s south side, hurdled a row of signs, then vaulted a 6-foot-tall fence separating spectators from the field, and finally managed to scale the 10 ft perimeter fence. No one had to: a bicycle cop just happened to be waiting for him on the other side when he dropped over the 10 footer. For his efforts the kid was suspended from school for 10 days, ordered to perform 48 hours of community service and pay $235 in court cost and must undergo counseling. (NWA News)
Going Off Half Cocked? It’s the Olympic Curling Streaker! Man Wearing Nothing But a Rubber Chicken Interrupts Great Britain vs. United States Match for Bronze Medal – From CNN’s website:
“Britain’s match against the United States for the men’s curling bronze medal was interrupted on Friday when a male streaker ran across the ice. (BadJocks has confirmed that this was the infamous UK sports streaker, Mark Roberts, although we didn’t recognize him at first with the beard . . . or the chicken. Click on his website here for details and more pics.) With poultry for a loin cloth, the man vaulted the barriers and danced up and down the side of the ice sheet for several minutes before being bundled away by bemused rink attendants. As armed police ejected the man, naked into the cold mountain air, he was heard to plead in a Scottish accent: ‘Please will someone bring me my clothes?’” Guess which gambling website he was promoting on his naked body? That’s right, GoldenPalace.com. (CNN) At right, a picture of the man who streaked the 2006 Torino Olympic Games. More pictures here.
NippleGate II? WWE RAW Diva Shows Off More Than Expected on Live Show During Simulated Sex Scene – Just in time for the Super Bowl! Another female nipple makes an appearance on TV and everyone’s head exploding. We’ll let the folks at BlogCritics.org set the scene for you: “For the most part, this five-minute segment between new WWE Champion Edge and his girlfriend Lita was un-involving. All of the major “action” was done under cover. However, after Lita removed her bra, the in-ring cameraman made a move around the bed to reveal the unthinkable: An actual female nipple peeking from underneath the covers on cable TV. It was obvious the crew knew that was a mistake and the black screen that followed proves it. The commentary crew quickly made sure to use the “It’s live TV” excuse. The actual nudity occurred on screen for less than a second, and if you weren’t watching closely, you likely missed it. It’s quite similar to the Super Bowl moment a few years ago involving Janet Jackson, only Lita’s nipple was uncovered.” Unfortunately, the site had posted several stills that have since been taken down as a result of legal pressure from the WWE. On the other hand, this website still has at least one Not Safe For Work image . . . for now. You can see stills of the official “Sex Gone Bad” sequence at the WWE site (which looks like the scene got pretty hot, even without the nipple slip, especially with kids in the audience), and click here to watch the video for yourself.

World Cup Fan Stupidity Update – So many great stories, so little time. A thief stole a woman’s purse and discovered a “free” world cup ticket in it so, of course, he went to the game. Unfortunately for him, the guy in the next seat was the woman’s husband. Yeah, he got arrested. And second, a drunk England supporter somehow got himself in trouble by wearing a Scottish kilt. According to police, he was exposing his backside to people in a public viewing area when a female police officer followed him to his seat where he promptly sat down next to his friends and his kilt fell open so that “his genitalia were visible to everyone.” Even in Germany, that’ll get you arrested.

Sh-wing! What IS That in the Picture? The guys over at DeadSpin got their hands on an interesting picture from the front page of the Bryan-College Station Eagle showing Texas guard Daniel Gibson trying to guard Texas A&M’s Acie Law during their game this week. And, well, there appears to be something coming out of Gibson’s shorts . . . something that’s supposed to stay IN your shorts if you’re wearing compression shorts (his penis, if you must know!). The paper later said it was just an “optical illusion” but did apologize to readers anyway for not looking over the photo more closely before it was published. Click here to do go to DeadSpin to see the larger version of the image. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
Caught on Tape: Australian Cricketer Celebrates Win With Three-Way Sex Romp – Our favorite bowler (pitcher in cricket) from down under is at it again! You all remember Shane Warne, 42, don’t you? He appears to combine the natural athletic skills of Michael Jordan with the over indulging tendencies of golfer John Daly. Last July his marriage ended after reports that he stripped naked in front of a hot 25-year-old before begging her for sex. In 2003 he got in trouble with his then fiancée (and now ex-wife) after she found sexually explicit text messages to another woman on his cell phone. In almost all those cases Warne got in trouble when he visited the UK for matches . . . something about the great teeth of British women, no doubt? Anyway, his latest scandal is classic: Warne was secretly videotaped by two topless models–Emma Kearney and Coralie Eichholtz–while having sex at their apartment. According to the News of the World, Shane “raced from Southampton up to Emma’s posh flat in Knightsbridge, West London, at the end of the day’s play against Middlesex, clutching two bottles of Dom Perignon and a half bottle of vodka.” In the photos he’s not only seen stripping to his Playboy logo underwear, but also playing with a giant inflatable penis. All in naughty, grainy black and white images that look like they were shot on a bank security cam. The trio got together after–you guessed it–Warne sent one of the young ladies some naughty text messages, including one that allegedly talked about his ex-wife’s complaints about his sexual appetite, “That’s why I got divorced. She said that I was killing her…I m********* twice a day… the last year its been out of control. I got it so bad need action baby…” You can read about the story here, or see the NOT SAFE FOR WORK pictures here. The British press can print some pretty racy stuff, can’t they? (News of the World)
It’s Finally Here! The 2007 “Naked” Curling Calendar – Fans of the site will remember the uproar that was created last year when a dozen of curling’s finest female athletes (You remember curling don’t you? Winter Olympic sport where they throw the round rock across the ice and sweep in front of it?) posed in various forms of undress for a fundraising calendar. Well, if you’ve been waiting for the 2007 version, it’s here! One of the ladies pictured this year is Canadian curler Christine “Is It Cold in Here?” Keshen, (pictured right) who, when asked why she posed for photographer Ana Arce’s effort called “Fire On Ice” said, “We need to sexify curling because sex sells.” No truer words were ever spoken . . . at least by a Canadian. (CBC) Order a copy of the calendar at The Curling News.
Teen Streaker Sprints 100 Yards During Football Game, Breaks Cop’s Tackle – It was a record setting evening at the Butler High School (New Jersey) game against Millburn on last Friday night. A 17-year-old male streaked across the field late in the game, running the entire length of the field after breaking the tackle of a police officer who tried to stop him near midfield. Startled fans shouted their support for his efforts, until five cops tackled him in the parking lot and put an end to the fun. The as-yet-unidentified boy will be aggravated assault, resisting arrest and lewdness. Said Butler coach Dan Hoeflinger, “It’s not part of the game. Some people would see this as enthusiasm. I don’t particularly see it that way.” (Daily Record)
Auto Racing Meets “Girls Gone Wild”? Australian Authorities Make Bold Decision to Nix Trying to Control Topless Women at Upcoming Indy Car Race – When Indy car racing comes to Australia this week, the cops will focus their attention on REAL lawbreakers and not women exposing their breasts in the stands, at least according to Police Commissioner Bob “Whip ‘Em Out” Atkinson. In recent years race officials have received complaints during the Gold Coast Race from some fans about young women standing on balconies and rooftops exposing their breasts to spectators below. In fact, the practice has become so pervasive that two years ago an Australian army helicopter pilot was suspended after flying a “show us your tits” banner as he and his crew hovered over the race. Despite these incidents, the cops won’t be going out of their way to arrest the gals, mostly they say, because by the time they spot the offending pair and make their way up the balconies, the women are already dressed when they arrive. So, like, how can they arrest them then? At right, a slightly censored pic of one of Australia’s race fans going wild. (Fox Sports)
Homecoming Streaker Upstages Crowning of King and Queen – It’s the pinnacle of high school social calendar for some kids: being voted homecoming king or queen. At most schools it involves an elaborate ceremony at halftime of the game with all the finalists walking to the middle of the field to await the big announcement in front of family, friends and football fans. That is, until a naked man runs out onto the field right as they’re reading your name and upstages you! That’s exactly what happened in Indiana this past weekend at Wheeler High School when a sophomore boy stripped down to nothing but a ski mask and ran out onto the field. According to reports, he managed to escape to a nearby cornfield (it is Indiana after all), but several parents chased after him and the young hooligan was brought to justice. Happy homecoming!

Streakers “Inspire” Youth Rugby Team to Come-From-Behind Victory – We’re not sure how you keep score in rugby, but if it’s anything like American football, the Kahukura, New Zealand under-13 team was getting its collective butt kicked by their rivals in Auckland 24-7 last weekend when inspiration arrived in the guise of five naked men. Members of the team claim that their come-from-behind 26-24 was due to the sight of five unidentified adult males–believed to be members of a traveling rugby team–who decided to streak the game in front of them and their stunned parents. In fact, later in the match, another man streaked the same game wearing nothing but a yellow cape and was tackled by the referee. He managed to escape and none of the other exhibitionists have been arrested, but apparently the mental damage was done to Auckland as they were unable to score a single point the rest of the game. In a possibly related story an elderly New Zealand couple, Jan and Bryan Moran, say they spotted five naked young men playing rugby at the Rotorua Lakefront about 3.30pm on Saturday. Said Mrs. Moran, “We didn’t stop to stare but it was just enough time to see naked bodies. It was quite funny. I must admit though, I don’t particularly agree with them prancing around in the nude. There were a lot of children around.”
But INSPIRED children, Mrs. Moran. (Daily Post)
