These photograph collections are here to show the beauty and greatness of the female form. They are athletes of various sports who sculpted their bodies into living works of art.
Considering that there is very little to be proud about in regards to the United States, we at least have these impressive individuals. Here are some of the great women athletes with old glory ( or wearing the stars and stripes).
These are photos taken in the late 1980s with comedic legend Don Rickles. The comedian was known for his insult humor which attacked politicians, celebrities, and just about everyone. He was a frequent guest on late night talk shows with Johnny Carson, David Letterman, and know for being on the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts. Rickles passed away at the age of 90 this year from kidney failure. Don Rickles had a career that lasted decades and left a major impact on comedy. These photos show Rickles meeting Janice Ragain and Tina Plakinger. They were top competitors in bodybuilding in the 1980s to early 1990s. These photos were taken at Gold’s Gym and the expression on Rickles face is priceless in the first photo. Who knows may be he was a fan of athletic women as well. Rest in peace Mr. Warmth you brought laughs and joy to a world that has grown too serious.
