    Hot women on a hot summer day...is there anything more satisfying? I don't think so and I'm not alone. Here are some lyrics from a few famous songs. It's a pretty safe bet that these artists can relate to my love for the ladies.

    "Girls - all I really want is girls
    And in the morning it's girls
    Cause in the evening it's girls

    I like the way that they walk
    And it's chill to hear them talk
    And I can always make them smile
    From White Castle to the Nile"

    - Beastie Boys - Girls

    "I love girls, girls, girls, girls
    Girls, I do adore
    Yo put your number on this paper cause I would love to date ya
    Holla at ya when I come off tour, yeah!"

    - Jay-Z - Girls, Girls, Girls

    "A pair of 45's made me open my eyes
    My temperature started to rise
    She was a long cool woman in a black dress
    Just a 5'9, beautiful tall
    With just one look i was a bad mess
    'cos that long cool woman had it all"

    - Holllies - Long Cool Woman

    The following list of the top 25 women in sports today is in order of worst to first. The good news is that the worst really isn't bad at all. The bad news is that you have to click through the article to see who wins the first place trophy. But, hey, what fun would it be if there was not a count down!

    Read on...

    This lovely lady certainly makes me want to check out the mountains this winter. How about you?

#23 Sue Bird: WNBA

3 of 25

    e.g. 'Chicago Blackhawks', 'Chicago Cubs'
    e.g. 'Chicago Blackhawks', 'Chicago Cubs'

    Sue is quite the bird. She not only flies around the country as part of the WNBA, but stays fly while doing so.

#22 Heather Mitts: Soccer

    e.g. 'Chicago Blackhawks', 'Chicago Cubs'

    There is only one thing to do when you see such a car and woman teamed up together...purr and growl...purr and growl.

#20 Ana Ivanovic: Tennis

6 of 25

    This girl is causing "A" racket in the tennis world with her sexy tone and fancy play.

#19 Serena Williams: Tennis

7 of 25

    I am not usually a fan of Serena myself, but this picture here served her justice and moves her into the No. 19 slot. As Austin Powers would say, "Oh groovy baby... yeah!"

#18 Anapaul Mancino: Soccer

8 of 25

    This picture is worth a thousand words...need I say more?

#17 Anastasia Ashley: Surfer

9 of 25

    Now that is one sexy beach.

#16 Melany Lorenzo: Lingerie Football

10 of 25

    Normally as an old fashion man, I would say women and football don't mix well, but what a twist...girls wearing lingerie and football in one. Melany, it doesn't get much better than this.

#15 Tatiana Golovin: Tennis

11 of 25

    Fluorescent green went out with the 80s...yes, it is true, but I have heard the 80s are coming back! Tatiana would look good in any decade wearing this sexy outfit. Hubba hubba!

#14 Anna Rawson: Golf

12 of 25

    This picture suits me to a Tee. Anna, you can hit my golf balls any day of the week but go easy I'm an amateur.

#13 Riley Maddex: Lingerie Football

13 of 25

    No. 8 wide receiver for the Lingerie Football League's Los Angeles Temptation, this attractive, in-shape model is super sexy and pretty much what any man wants for looks in a a girl.

    Bobby Boucher's mother in the movie The Waterboy, would have just one thing to say if she were in my shoes..."You been playin' da foosball behind my back?"

#12 Maria Kirilenko: Tennis

14 of 25

    Born in the Soviet Union of paternal Ukrainian heritage, Kirilenko is a good friend to fellow WTA players Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka, Ana Iva 4nović, Agnieszka Radwańska and Marta Domachowska.

    Way too sexy! Don't drool to much guys ;)

#11 Skylar Vanel: Lingerie Football

15 of 25

    Former Co-Captain, LFL Football Player, Middle Linebacker for the NY Majesty.

    Footballer, Shot caller, serious mixologist, marketing guru, selling ice to eskimos, lifetime student, personal trainer and model.

    Most men only dream of being tackled by a majestic New Yorker like Miss Vanel. They say that anything is possible and maybe they are right. The "Skylar's" the limit.

#10 Maria Sharapova: Tennis

16 of 25

    This 6 ft 2 in tennis star is one of the more well known women on this list and rightfully so. She is down right nasty at tennis. Take a quick peak at her singles achievements below and don't forget to look at how beautiful she looks in the picture to the side as well.

    Career record (singles) 356 – 85 (81.0%)
    Career titles 22 WTA
    Highest ranking No. 1 (August 22, 2005)
    Current ranking No. 9 (April 4, 2011)

#9 Krystal Gray: Lingerie Football League

17 of 25

    Currently Krystal Gray is the starting quarterback for the New York Majesty, a team based in Uniondale, New York and of the Lingerie Football League. Here she is in some of that sexy lingerie that we men have grown to love.

    Now they are going to have trouble keeping men out of a women's sport for once. Who wouldn't want to be her center?

#8 Bianca Cruz: Softball

18 of 25

    Bianca's favorite athlete is Alex Rodriguez. If I was A-Rod, I would definitely be pursuing this softball beauty instead of an ancient creased Madonna. I mean, if it were the 80s or 90s, sure, Madonna was a babe, but come on. It is the 2010s!

    According to the Arizona State Sun Devils website, Bianca, in addition to playing softball, enjoys playing basketball, soccer and volleyball.

#7 Ashley Harkleroad: Tennis

19 of 25

    Harkleroad was the first WTA tennis player to pose naked for the American men's magazine Playboy. Ashley's good looks are not all she has going for her. This fine and divine beauty queen is also a fantastic tennis player.

    Career record (singles)
    213–137
    Career titles 0 (8 ITF titles)
    Highest ranking No. 39 (June 9, 2003)

#6 Anna Kournikova: Tennis

20 of 25

    Kournikova's professional tennis career has been halted the past few years and it is quite possible that it has ended because of chronic back and spinal problems. Luckily for Anna ,she is famous and beautiful and should have no problem staying in the lime light with a shape like hers. Growwwwl!

#5 Allison Stokke: Track & Field

21 of 25

    Allison is an American pole vaulter from Orange County, California. She has been setting the Internet on fire with her photos now for the past couple of years.

    We expect that her pole vaulting career will continue to lead to success in the modeling world and get her many sponsorships in the future, because gentlemen, this one is a looker and there is no doubt about that.

#4 Ioana Raluca Olaru: Tennis

22 of 25

    This twenty-one year old Romanian beauty has game and looks to match. She has virtually a whole career ahead of her still and looks to shock and amaze for years to come.

    175–103
    Career titles 0 WTA, 9 ITF
    Highest ranking

#3 Trish Stratus: Wrestler

23 of 25

    This beauty with the booty is quite a site for sore eyes. You can catch this luscious lady wrestling in the WWE, but that hasn't always been her career of choice. Trish began her career as a fitness model...why are we all not surprised?

#2 Leryn Franco: Track & Field

24 of 25

    She specializes in the javelin throw and became an internet sensation during the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Her personal best throw is 55.38 metres, achieved in May 2007 in Fortaleza.

    Super hot, super tough. You don't see many triathletes who look like Lokelani. Lokelani McMichael, whose real name is Lokelaniku'uleimakamae, entered her first Ironman triathlon in 1995. She was 18-years-old, and she beat out about 48,000 people to become eligible for one of the 2,000 or so spots in the 140.6-mile triathlon.

    The achievement also put her into the Guinness Book of World Records as the youngest woman ever to finish the Ironman. McMichael has been featured in GQ, Shape, Triathlete, Runner's World and several other magazines.
