Hot Female Athletes and Christmas

For many people throughout the world, there is no better morning than on Christmas, as the mix of family, food and receiving presents leaves nearly everyone involved happy. The joy that people feel during this memorable time of year is nearly inexplicable, and leaves the festive season as the best time of the year.

And with the Christmas season now firmly upon us, it is time that it be tied into another one of society's favorite things, which just so happens to be sports. Tying the two into each other would seem to be a necessity considering both sports and the Christmas season are staples of society throughout the world, and nearly every major league plays games when families are celebrating together.

When searching out to properly tie the two together I ultimately decided that a list of 20 hot female athletes that any man would love to wake up and find in their stocking would be a perfect for the season.

There is no doubting that the list is a bit silly at times -- after all, no women would ever be placed in a stocking -- but the point of the list was to provide a sort of Christmas fantasy list of women, and this was surely accomplished. This is easily defined by the fact that each of the 20 women included are impossible to look away from, and I would certainly be happy if Santa Claus hooked me up with them this Christmas.

Some people may believe that there are more attractive female athletes out there, and any suggestions or comments regarding my selection of women on the list are both accepted and encouraged.

Enjoy!

Meghan Hardin is a professional golfer on the Cactus and Symetra Tour, although there is little doubting that she is much more know for her good looks than golfing at this point. Hardin has become something of a sex symbol for women's golf, and appearances on Golf Channel's show Big Break Atlantis show that the world is taking notice.

There are surely few who would arguing this as a bad thing, as the tennis star's looks continue to drop the jaws of men around the world with ease.

After she recently got engaged to Houston Dynamo midfielder Servando Carrasco, any previous dreams of getting the female star for Christmas became even more unlikely, but one can always dream.

    Couldn’t find ONE non-Caucasian for this list? Really?

    • WagTheDawg

      First time in years. You’re more likely to win the lotto than see this again. Be Happy! Don’t Worry?

    • Tyler Leli

      Racial background played no part in the formation of this list. Thank you for reading.

  • Crush

    Not one WNBA player? You guys didn’t look around much. A bunch of surfers and skaters. You can make a list from the WNBA alone. Also what about some of the sprinters in Track and Field???

  • WagTheDawg

    So who’s the babe in the first photo … the one with NO NAME? She’s easily the hottest of the bunch, and for 2nd I’ll go with Ivanovich.

  • NYCKim

    A ring girl qualifies as an athlete now?

  • Erik LaSeure

    How in the hell does Danica Patrick make this list?

    • Tyler Leli

      I would say that you are one of few people who feel she is not attractive.
