ANDRIY SHEVCHENKO-nuff said! :)
So occassionally, I do indulge in non-tennis brieflines pics and when I do I like to share and post them to the yahoo group. As a matter of fact, I sent about six photos of Chelsea FC star, Andriy Shevchenko out to the members of the group (the one attached to this post was included). I won't post them on the geocities site, so the only way you'll get anything I send out that is not tennis related will be to join the group.
So do it already! lol

ANDRIY SHEVCHENKO-nuff said! :)
I thought it would be helpful (and incentivizing) if I included an exhaustive list of all the players currently on the geocities site. There are currently eighty nine players. Click the image above to see the entire list ordered in terms of players with the most pictures to the players with the least.
Good afternoon guys!
Paul Hanley of Australia was added to the brflines site. I only have one picture of him, which is attached to this post.
I'm hoping to post some other non-tennis pics to this blog later today, along with my push for the yahoo group. So keep a look out!

Today I uploaded seven pictures of Roger Federer's brieflines to the brflines site. One of the pictures included in the update is attached to this post. Several of the pictures are screen captures of Federer's aussie open matches by TZ.
TZ is a moderator/founder type of the yahoo group, brief lines. If you're a dude and are over eighteen years of age (18+) click on the link and join and bask in all the briefy goodness that comes to your mailbox almost every day. I know I do!
Have a safe Wednesday, boys.

Good morning, boys!
I added Jan Vacek to the brflines site this morning. I have no idea who he is, except that he's on the tour. His picture, like Kunitsyn's was buried away in a random subdirectory. The one picture I have of him is attached to this post.
Enjoy the update...i'm out!

Today's photo update to the brflines site is to Tim Henman's page. Eleven photos were added brining the total number on his page to twenty seven (27). One of the eleven pictures included in the update is attached to this post.
I've always liked Tim Henman, but he never seemed to quite make it a final of a major, including the hometown tourney, the Championships at Wimbledon. Still, he was always a very gentlemanly player. He seemed to me the epitome of what a Briton is.
Enjoy the update!

Novak Djokovic has won the Aussie Open!
Congratulations to Nole. It's nice to see someone besides Federer or Nadal win a major. Hopefully his ascent to the zenith of the game as well as Tsonga's strong run to the final is a harbinger of a new ascendent order....
So, I've had a couple pictures of Igor Kunitsyn in my hard drive forever, but I guess that I've always just skipped over the directory with them in it. He's part of a group of players that I had skipped over when I first created the brflines site because of the paucity of pictures of non-top ten-ranked players. I wanted to make sure that I got the big boys (Robredo, Nieminen, Gasquet) up first since I had so many pics of them.
So in the forthcoming days, you'll get more of those types of guys that have one or two pics and who are more obscure.
Enjoy the updates boys.

Ooh la la! Frenchman Julien Benneteau's page on the brflines site was updated with four new pictures, one of which is attached to this post.
I really like searching for pictures of Julien. His photos usually yield a high percentage of briefline pics in proportion to total pics since he wears white shorts a lot.
Tuesday, January 22, 2008
I will return to the site shortly as soon as I gain traction with my job, etc. In the meantime, if you need a fix of brieflines everyday, join the yahoo group. I sent about ten email messages to the group today with my finds, including non-tennis photos (like the ones above of David Beckham).
Thanks for voting in the poll and leaving feedback, it really does mean a lot to me!

Andy's quickly risen through the tour to situate himself in the top ten. Best of luck to him in the Aussie Open!
But I have to admit, I’m not a fan. I don’t find him the least bit attractive so I've refrained from adding him, though I've received many photos from the Y! Group (which you should join). On the other hand, I do feel a need to respond to the several requests to add him in my guestbook.
So, I’ll open it up to the general readership of this blog. I’ve put a poll in the right navigation bar that you can use to have your voice heard! The poll will close in one week.
Let me know boys!

Tall and gangly, Mario always obliges with out of the world brieflines. Some of the images I use for navigation buttons and banners are, in fact, images of Mario's brieflines.
Sadly, he was injured for the latter part of the 2007 season, so he didn't provide as many brieflines as healthier players, like Novak Djokovic. Hopefully he's healed up for the '08 season and continues to wear colored briefs and white shorts.

I recently questioned why I maintain the brflines site and this blog after I received some communication criticizing it. Then I chatted with a really nice guy from Canada who reignited my interest in maintaining both. Thanks, Mike.
Anyway, the geocities site now has over seven hundred pictures (716 to be exact), about a hundred more then the last update on the site's content. Tommy Robredo still reigns supreme with ninety photos of his sweet brieflines. As evidenced by the picture above, you can see why Tommy reigns supreme! The other members of the top ten remain the same, with a little variance in the order. They are as follows
1. Tommy Robredo (90 photos)
2. Novak Djokovic (66 photos)
3. Richard Gasquet (58 photos)
4. Fernando Verdasco (40 photos)
5. Jarkko Nieminen (35 photos)
6. Frank Dancevic (28 photos)
7. Mario Ancic (23 photos)
8 tie. Lleyton Hewitt (22 photos)
8 tie. Andy Roddick (22 photos)
10. Marat Safin (19 photos)
Also, my weekly plug for the yahoo group. Join it already!
A page was added to the brflines site for Juan Ignacio Chela of Argentina.
I don't know a lot about senor Chela, but I remember watching a special on a female tennis player on the Tennis Channel and Juan Ignacio worked out at the same gym as her. I remember thinking about how thin he was and how he would be able to play with more built players like Ginepri.
Three pics are on the page, one of which is attached to this post. Enjoy!

The addition of Paradorn is significant because he is the first player from Asia that I've added to the page. Most of the players are from Europe, North America, or Australia. I'd like to post more players from regions that are under-represented on the site.
Anyway, that's it for now. Enjoy guys!
Monday, January 7, 2008
Jarkko is one of my favorite players on the tour. He's blonde and beautiful. Anyway, hope you guys enjoy.

It seems like the ATP commissioned a bunch of new profile pictures for its website. So, accordingly I've updated the geocities site with some of the new pictures.
Some of the pictures are much improved, like the one of Andy Roddick above. The one on the right seems much more natural and his smile less forced.
Anyway, look forward to some new Nieminen brieflines tomorrow.
Saturday, January 5, 2008
2. There's about a month lag between when I send pics out via the group and when they end up posted on the site. So if you absolutely need to see the latest and greatest pic of let's say, a Jarkko Nieminen briefline, you'll get those as I find them via the yahoo group.
3. All tennis pictures that end up on the geocities site are sent via the yahoo group. You get all the pictures and don't have to deal with the data transfer limitation.
So go ahead and join up already!

The most noticeable change is the background. Green squares are out and blue stripes are in. I hope you like that. It makes it easier for me to align the html elements with the stripes and I think it gives it a more masculine look.
On the index page, I also provide a more comprehensive list of planned updates. This list will now include photo updates to existing pages where it previously only provided a list of players that will be added to the site.
I hope these are positive changes for those of you who visit and enjoy the site.

Max Mirnyi's page was updated today. I added three pictures of the tall, lanky, hunky tennis player from Byelorus's page on my brflines site.
I know I have a nice video of his brieflines that I keep meaning to pare down into a video clip. When I do finally create the clip and upload it to a free server, I'll post it in the yahoo group. Please make sure that you visit and join the yahoo group to get access to all kinds of briefline pics as well as updates from me that I don't make here or to my geocities page.

I use statcounter to track some basic statistics on this blog. I’m just super curious to see where all the traffic is being driven from and to see from time to time how the numbers ebb and flow based on variables like day of the week and whether I make an update to the geocities site or not.
One of the most interesting things that stat counter does is tell me which country a user is from. Don't worry, I'm not a cyber stalker--I can’t drill down any lower than the country level, but it’s fun to see that brieflines are appreciated the world over.
Since my last post on the subject, several other countries have joined the list of visitors to my blog including:
The map above shows the geographic location of my last seventy visitors or so.
Hey boys, I'm back!
I updated the brflines site today with a page for Martin Klizan. The only line pic I have of the 18 year old is attached to this post.
Please make sure to visit the yahoo brieflines group if you would like to get these kinds of pics and more. The link is on the right.
Happy New Year!
