Underwood underwhelms as usual on SNF


Robin Maryland, president, ActSensuous

I fall for it and I call for it every year.

At the start of each new NFL season, I hold out hope that this will be the year when country singer Carrie Underwood shows just a little professionalism and class, and wears sheer nude pantyhose when performing the Sunday Night Football opening theme song.

I know what you’re thinking: “Silly girl, Robin.”  I know, I know.

No matter how bright and shiny her outfit, or lavish the set, ever since the 2013 SNF season when Carrie Underwouldn’t took the handoff from Faith Hill, she’s fumbled the ball, rushing for negative yardage on stage with those pasty-white “bear” legs of hers.  And every year, I call her on it.

Loser!

In this era when the NFL increasing is losing audience and rating shares among the coveted demographics (ages 18-49), it’s clear there’s a real disconnect with fans. And the numbers, as reported by the likes of Forbes.com, USA Today and NYPost.com, should be alarming to the NFL in general, and SNF in particular.

Around this time last year, Forbes.com contributor Brandon Katz, wrote:

“NBC’s Sunday Night Football was down yet again in viewership, drawing in 16.8 million and scoring a 6.19/19 rating in the advertiser friendly 18-49 demo. The numbers mark a season low for SNF, and the show’s 11.0 overnight rating is the lowest since 2007 (ouch).”

Why is the NFL seemingly becoming less popular each year? Can anyone say ex-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s National Anthem protest (moron)?  How about the whole gangsta image many of its players and marketers want to emulate?  Could it be the fact that so many ex-players are dying in their 50s?

How about the incredible greed of the owners?  Want to go to a game with friends or family? You might have to take out a small loan, or (maybe even more expensive) sign up for DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket.

What does the NFL say is the reason viewers aren’t turning out in the numbers expected? It’s because fans increasingly are turning to digital streaming instead of watching on TV.  Oh, and in the case of last weekend’s opening of the 2017-18 NFL season, it was because of Hurricane Irma.  (That’s actually the case, as I lost power here and wasn’t able to tune in, which also explains why this post is being published now after the second SNF game.)

Not since actor Peter Finch (playing a news anchor in the 1976 Academy Award winning movie, Network) advised viewers of his station’s evening news program to stick their heads out of windows and yell: “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore,” has there been such outrage over sports TV programming.

But, c’mon now … we all know the real reason why the NFL in general and SNF in particular are seeing their rating numbers plummet, don’t we?

Carrie Underwood, gallivanting across the stage and street venues in her signature bare legs,  greets Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown in a scene from the Sunday Night Football opening theme show, which debuted on  Sept. 10, 2017.

Here’s the deal, SNF:  No one wants to see Carrie Underdressed prancing around with those unsightly bear legs like she’s all that (she ain’t) during your opening theme production.  If that’s all she’s got, I’d rather watch Bozo the Clown perform the theme song.

What’s with this relationship between SNF and Carrie Undercovered?  Can’t they cut her?  Is she really the best they can find?  She isn’t professional, and she has no class.  Well, maybe she’s paying them!

As I’ve written before, every other notable pop singer performing today on stages of all sizes and venues, wears sheer nude or suntan pantyhose for the occasion.  I’ve mentioned these ladies many times in the past here, and given you reasons why they could and should replace Carrie Underhanded.

This time (just to make sure I’m on point here) I launched on sites such as billboard.com, YouTube and thetoptens.com a search of today’s top female singers/performers, and they all listed the usual suspects, although each site and others like them had the same artists ranked in different orders.

And, yes, the artists are all the ones I’ve recommended here a million times.  This time, let’s consider just three performers the producers of SNF could sign as free agents. (They could tell Carrie Underachiever “We just want to go in a different direction.”)

Each of these ladies is known to the NFL now, as each has performed the Halftime Shows of the past few Super Bowls, making it all the more obvious a choice for the dopes producing the SNF theme.

Beyoncé

Beyonce’ performs the Halftime Show of the Super Bowl game on Feb. 3, 2013 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA.

A veteran singer, songwriter, dancer and actress, Beyoncé already has performed the Halftime Show in two Super Bowls (2013 and 2016), make her an excellent candidate to do the SNF  opening theme production.

This highly accomplished artist who rose to fame in the late 1990s is relevant and has an NFL kind of image.  She’s sold 100 million records as a solo artist, and has won 22 Grammy Awards, so there’s no question about her talent and showmanship.

She gets my vote anyway because she is highly professional in always wearing nude or suntan pantyhose, not only on stage, but also when appearing as a guest on TV shows, and often, when she’s just out and about.

Katy Perry

She made everyone hear her roar during a spectacular, and most-memorable 2015 Super Bowl halftime show, wearing a variety of elegant to cute costumes, complemented, of course, with nude or suntan pantyhose.

In fact, according to wikipedia.org, two days after the halftime show, Guinness World Records announced that Perry’s performance garnered 118.5 million viewers in the United States, and became the most watched and highest rated show in Super Bowl history. The viewership was higher than the game itself, which was viewed by an audience of 114.4 million.

The winner of five American Music Awards and 14 People’s Choice Awards who kissed a girl and liked it, Perry always delivers powerful and exciting performances. She’s got an amazing voice delivers an unforgettable performance, and always sparkles like a firework. Of all musical artists, Perry has been one of the best-dressed on stage and everywhere else. She appears to be dedicated to wearing dresses, always with nude or suntan pantyhose. She clearly would be an upgrade for the SNF opening theme.

Lady Gaga

Six-time Grammy Award winner, Lady Gaga, performed the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show, attracting 117.5 million viewers and exceeding the game’s total of 113.3 viewers. And for her efforts, Gaga received an Emmy nomination.

Sporting a musical style thought to be most comparable to Gwen Stefani and Madonna, and influenced by David Bowie and Michael Jackson, it is estimated that Gaga has sold around 27 million albums and 146 million singles worldwide. And with a fashion sense that seems to be the inspiration of everything from bubble wrap to raw meat, S&M-style leather and stilettos, there’s no denying Lady Gaga is the ultimate stage entertainer.

But more than anything, I will always be grateful to Lady Gaga because at the dawning (and during the entire hey-day) of the “bear”-legs movement, she stood as one of the few bright lights in the music entertainment industry, always wearing (sometimes nothing but) nude or suntan pantyhose with everything from the most outlandish outfit to an elegant dress. Yes, there was a time when the only professional entertainer you’d see in pantyhose was Lady Gaga and she likely deserves some of the credit for turning around a younger generation of pantyhose wearers today.

Others

Selena Gomez and an unidentified companion out and about some time somewhere.

With respect: Ariana Grande (the most prolific and consistent wearer of sheer nude or suntan pantyhose in almost every single performance, as well as when she’s out and about); Selena Gomez (just slightly behind Ariana in wearing sheer nude or suntan pantyhose when performing and often, sheer black pantyhose, when she’s out and about, left); and Taylor Swift (often wears on stage and sometimes when out and about), to me, these ladies, while super talented in their own right, just wouldn’t seem credible performing in an NFL spotlight.

Rihanna on stage

Other artists who could be tapped to perform the Sunday Night Football opening theme song would have to include Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, Adele, Pink, Shakira, Kelly Clarkson, Celine Dion,  and Jessie J.

And while I really don’t like her, as she appears to have zero class, even Miley Cyrus is likely to wear sheer nude pantyhose if she were signed to perform the SNF opening theme.

Take a poll, NFL. I’ll bet viewers in staggering numbers would rather see Beyoncé, Katy Perry or Lady Gaga perform the SNF introduction theme song over Carrie Underperformer.

NFL Cheerleaders

OK, perhaps the bozos over at SNF got a good deal on Carrie Underdone, and they just don’t want to pay the bill for the better professional entertainers available out there.  Here’s an idea then:  Have just about any professional singer record a new song, but for the stage show, choose members of the cheerleader squads of the two teams who are competing each Sunday night. They could even interact with some of the different players for that night’s matchup.

Brilliant, right?  I mean all the NFL Cheerleader squads are professional, classy and smart enough to wear nude or suntan pantyhose with their outfits.

What a way that would be to kick off Sunday Night Football.  Fred (SNF executive producer Fred Gaudelli), call me.  We can work out the fee for my killer idea.

Part II  ~ The supervillain

Eric Cartman of South Park

Listen, I’m not saying I hate Carrie Underwood. Wait a minute … Yes, I am!  (Say like Eric Cartman of South Park.)

Hate her song, hate her outfits, hate her.

OK, maybe she’s a nice enough lady in real life, but here’s the deal: I hate it when a female celebrity misses an opportunity to do what’s right, what’s professional and, ultimately, what’s glamorous and feminine.

Disclaimer:  Now, if Carrie doesn’t wear pantyhose on SNF  because Fred and his team don’t want her to wear, then that’s another story. But I kinda doubt that. I think it’s Carrie’s responsibility to be the professional and make the decision herself about something as personal as whether to wear pantyhose.  No, I’m pretty sure Carrie is the bad guy here.

Carrie Underwood pauses on the red carpet in a gown (with her signature bare legs) ahead of the Grammy Awards earlier this year in Los Angeles, Calif.

I mean in an Internet search it’s difficult to find a single picture of her wearing.

She even wore a fabulous red gown and high heel dress sandals with those awful bear legs to attend the Grammy Awards earlier this year.  Now, that’s one place where professionalism, class and elegance would be called for, but, as usual, she wanted no part of that.

Carrie, Fred, news flash for you here:  Pantyhose are back. In a big way. And they’re only going to get bigger and bigger. Look around. Pantyhose are on TV, on TV commercials, in the movies, on Broadway, on the runway (saying again for dramatic sinking-in effect) on the RUNWAY, in fashion magazines, and most of all, pantyhose are on almost all female celebrities today (those with brains, professionalism and femininity anyway).

Heck, pantyhose were on Good Morning America who announced in February 2015, “Pantyhose are back.”

Yeah, I hate Carrie because she has the chance to be among the shining examples of celebs who are once again embracing pantyhose, but instead, she chooses to be a reminder of the ugliness that was the bear legs culture of practically the entire decade of 2000.

But what can I say?  For everything that’s good in the world, there’s a thing that’s bad.  Every superhero has an arch enemy.  Let’s see: Superman has Lex Luther, Batman has the Joker, and Spiderman has the Green Goblin.

Same goes for female superheroes.  Wonder Woman, the one character who most stood for everything good, including the virtues of beauty, grace, femininity and what’s right in the world, has an opposite. A supervillain.

 Who is the evil arch enemy of  Wonder Woman?   Introducing … Under Woman.

Yes, it’s Under Woman who (disguised as Carrie Underwood, a mild-mannered country singer) fights a never-ending battle for taking the road less classy, for always choosing to look masculine because it’s easier than making the slightest effort to be more feminine, and for choosing to go bare-legged for all occasions and at all venues.

Part III ~ Carrie earns highest award of her career

As I stated in the first paragraph of this post, season after season since 2013, I had always held out hope that Carrie Understated would finally do the right thing and wear sheer nude pantyhose with her outfits during the SNF opening theme production. But year after year, she has disappointed me.

It is clear to me now that she just isn’t ever going to get it. She has dedicated herself to looking like any number of plain females today who want to talk like, act like and, worse, look more like men.

I’ve had enough of Carrie Undertaker, so recently, I put a call in to an old friend of mine. His name is Oliver B. Griswold, III.  You might remember him from a few posts ago about Sarah Jessica Parker.  His closest friends call him Griz.

Here’s how the conversation went:

Rob:  Hey, Griz.  It’s your old buddy, Robin.

Griz:  Who?

Rob:  Uhhhhh, you know I run ActSens …

Griz:  Yeah, yeah. I’m just messin’ with you. I know who you are. You got some nerve calling, after you stole Sarah Jessica Parker from me.

Rob:   (Jeez, I thought we’d moved past that.)  I know, I know.  But remember I promised I’d make it up to you.

Griz:   I’m listening …  And don’t call me Griz.  We ain’t friends.

Rob:  (uh oh)  So, I’m just wondering?   You still a Chicago Bears fan?   What am I thinking?   Of course you are …

Griz:   Get to the point, girl, I got some porridge on the stove.  Heh-heh.  What’s the matter?  I make you nervous or something?

Rob: (well, yeah, actually)   No, no, not at all.   Hey, you’ve seen Sunday Night Football, right?   You know that (bimbo) uh, country singer, Carrie (Undertalented) Underwood?  Annoying little tramp who flaunts her ugly bear legs …

Griz: Wait, when you said that word just now, how are you spelling it?

Rob:  You know … b a r e

Griz:   Yeah, right.  OK, go on.   What are you saying here, you are giving me  Carrie Underwood?

Rob:   Yes, I am officially recommending you make Carrie (Undernourished) Underwood your new client. I mean, she would be …

Griz:  Great.

Rob:   Precisely.  That’s what I was about to say.

Griz:   I love it.  OK, Rob, I’m taking Carrie Underwood on, and I’m taking you off … the menu.

Rob:  (gulp) Uh, menu?

Griz:  Come on, get a sense of humor, girl.  Seriously, this Carrie Underwood is perfect for me.  I’m thrilled.  Set this up, will ya?

The Grizzly can hardly contain his happiness upon presenting country singer Carrie Underwood the trophy for the 2017 Grizzly Awards during a recent ceremony at an undisclosed auditorium in central Florida.

Rob:  Absolutely.   So, just to be clear here, my giving you Carrie (Undercooked) Underwood makes us even now, right?   We can be friends, now, right?

Griz:   Don’t push it, Sweetheart. Yeah, yeah, OK, OK, stop whining.  Carrie Underwood is as deserving as Stacy London was way back when. She’ll make a great new signature client for me.

Rob:   Excellent.  And, again, to be clear, we’re friends now, ri …

Click.

OK, then.   Well, close enough.   So, everything is right in the world again.   Now, I can stop hoping and waiting for Carrie Underblunder to come around.  She has officially received the 2017 Grizzly Award.  Now, she can openly and proudly proclaim to the world she is the new Stacy London.  She’s officially the face (or legs) of the bear legs franchise.

I’m sure she and the Grizzly will be very happy together.  They look happy, don’t they?   Well, Griz does anyway.

Fall brings football, and very often, more pantyhose


Robin Maryland
Robin Maryland, president, ActSensuous

Are you feeling something in the air these days?  That crisp autumn breeze?  You know what that means, right?

It’s time for some footballlllll.

With new head coaches, new coordinators, new venues, so many new rookies, free agents and traded players looking to make impacts for their teams, this should be another exciting season.

And the Rams are back where they belong in Los Angeles.  So all is right and good in the NFL again.

Oh, and one more thing is new …

 

SNF opening theme song

underdone-snf-16
Yuk: Carrie Underwood’s dress looks like bad use of tape on gift wrapping paper.

Yes, the Sunday Night Football opening theme song is new this year (thank God, as I was getting sick of “Waitin’ all day for Sunday Night”), but naturally, one thing hasn’t changed.

For the third consecutive season now, Carrie Underwoodenhead will be prancing around on stage, this time in a couple of dresses that look like they belong in a sci-fi movie, flashing those bony, pasty white “bear” legs of hers.

And for the third season in a row, I am calling her on it here.

Ahead of Underwearer’s debut three seasons ago as the new performer of the SNF intro theme song, an advertisement touted that NBC’s Sunday Night Football would feature Carrie Underwood’s legs “to drive men nuts.”

Hey, men, are you nuts over her legs yet?

Quick quiz:

  1. How are Carrie Underwood and an out-of-work school teacher alike?

No class.

  1. What does Carrie Underwood have in common with Ariana Grande, Beyonce’, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, Rhianna and Selena Gomez?

Nothing.  Those others have the professionalism, class and elegance to grace their legs with sheer pantyhose on stage.

  1. In what way are Carrie Underwood and singer-actress Cher connected?

Gypsies, (Carrie Underwood) & Thieves” was a #1 single by Cher in 1971.

 

selena-gomez
Stunning: Professional singer/actress Selena Gomez always looks beautiful, classy and decidedly sexy in pantyhose during her stage performances.

Yes, even young professional entertainers like Selena (among many, many others) have the good sense and class to wear sheer nude pantyhose on stage, yet, veteran performer Carrie Underdressed (who truly needs to wear pantyhose so much more than those younger ones do in the first place) still doesn’t get it.

carrie-scary-snf-16
Scary Carrie: In this dress, Carrie Underwouldn’t looks like a villain in an old Star Trek movie.

And, as I wrote last season, the fact that SNF is like the biggest money maker for NBC against all other shows (and so is the NFL itself for that matter), it is unfathomable to me that the director or producer of the SNF intro theme song also doesn’t have the sense (or the guts) to tell Carrie Underwhelming that she should wear pantyhose.

During the past few years, the NFL has been cracking down on bad behavior by players, drumming into their heads that it is a privilege to play in the league.  (Wake up, Colin Kaepernick and Johnny Manziel.)  And on  Thursday Night Football the other day, LB Brandon Marshall of the Denver Broncos was the only member of his team not to stand during the singing of the National Anthem before the first regular season NFL game between the host Broncos and the Carolina Panthers.

I was hoping head coach Gary Kubiak, or executive vice president of football operations and general manager John Elway would bench Marshall for the duration of the game.  It was good to hear that head coach Jeff Fisher of the L.A. Rams would have.  He said as much recently.  I would have, too.  One player isn’t bigger than the entire team and organization, and football is not a forum for voicing one’s personal, political or social agenda.  Marshall might be a good linebacker, but in my mind, he isn’t a good team guy, which makes me wonder whether he’s not a good guy … period.

Sorry, had to get that out of my system (and it’s my blog, and I can say what I wannnnt).  But, now, back to what this blog is all about …

The NFL, rightfully so, is image-conscious these days.  So what makes Carrie Understated think that she is too good to do the right thing when representing the league and SNF?

NFL cheerleaders

I mean 27 out of 32 NFL teams have professional cheerleader squads who wear sheer nude or suntan pantyhose with their uniforms.  (The Bears, Browns, Giants,  Packers and Steelers don’t have cheerleaders.)

Vikings 2016 Preseason Week 4
Now, that’s an entrance: Members of the Minnesota Vikings cheerleaders take the field to open a home preseason game against the LA Rams earlier this month.

In honor of the Rams’ move back to Los Angeles, I tried to find a photo of the Rams cheerleaders performing during this year’s preseason.  I found only one, but it was too small.  So instead, here’s a high-resolution pic (above) of the Minnesota Vikings cheerleaders ushering in the contest, as the Vikes hosted the Rams in the teams’ fourth preseason game Thursday, Sept. 1.

rams-cheerleaders-1978
Not so nice: Members of the 1978 LA Rams cheerleaders during a public appearance.

Can you even imagine today’s NFL’s cheerleaders performing bear-legged?

Check out this photo (left), taken back when I guess there wasn’t color film.  And weren’t pantyhose big in the 1970s?

Heck, today, many college football teams’ and even high school football teams’ cheerleaders have the professionalism and class to wear sheer pantyhose with their uniforms.

Yet, somehow, Carrie Underminer thinks she is above all that.

even-dogs-hate-bare-legged-womenBy the way, I thought of calling her Carrie Underdog, but Underdog is cute, and besides, even a dog hates bare legs (right).

Sooooo, another season in which I will enjoy Sunday Night Football but skip the intro theme song.  Not that doing so will make any difference to anybody, but I can’t stand to look at Carrie Underperformer anyway, so at least, I’ll feel better.

 

The Rhodes home

lindsay_rhodesA few seasons ago, I praised some of the female hosts/reporters, and Lindsay Rhodes (left), specifically, for wearing sheer pantyhose during episodes of NFL Network and NFL Total Access.

Then, Rhodes all of a sudden stopped wearing, and I stopped watching.

The other day, I tuned in to those shows again because of the start of the 2016 season and was pleased to see Lindsay wearing again (at least, during the episode I saw, but hopefully, she’s back to wearing all the time again.)

 

Fair ball

What?  Major League Baseball teams have cheerleaders now?   When did that happen?

marlins-energy-team-1
Something to cheer about:  Members of the Miami Marlins Energy Team rev up the home crowd during a baseball game against the Pittsburgh Pirates earlier this season.

I’ve been an NFL fan for, I don’t know, a hundred years or so, but MLB?  Not so much.  OK, practically, never.  But when I can find nothing to watch on the 250 or so channels I have on DirecTV, occasionally, I’ll stop in on a baseball game.

Pirates Marlins Baseball

And because of where I live, I always can get the Miami Marlins, and recently I was shocked (but quite pleased) to see the Energy Team, especially, since the girls all wear pantyhose with their uniforms.

According to the team’s website, the Energy Team is a high-vitality male and female squad who perform a unique mix of gymnastics, hip-hop, acrobatics, modern jazz, funk and break dancing to provide excitement and entertainment during Miami Marlins home games and appearances throughout the community.

Additionally, the site states the Energy Team is the only co-ed performance pep squad team in Major League Baseball.

To be sure, I Googled that and found that a few MLB teams have some kind of entertainment squads, but the photos showed that the girls on those teams are all bear-legged.   Love that Miami sports organizations always show professionalism and class.   Way to go, Energy Team!

Questionable voting

OK, enough about sports.  You’ve read a few times here that I usually decide what I’m going to watch on TV based upon what I believe (hope) is most likely to have pantyhose content in it.

I used to watch Dancing with the Stars, but after a few seasons I could no longer stand seeing professional ballroom dancers strutting around bear-legged.  This aint hip-hop, people, it’s BALLROOM.  Somehow, the DWTS version of ballroom missed the part about professionalism, class and elegance.  I haven’t watched that ridiculous show since.

About 11 seasons ago, I started and am still watching America’s Got Talent even though the judges can be quite annoying, as their egos are so huge, they try to make the show mostly about themselves.   Nevertheless, I always liked and miss the old variety shows that were big (I hear) in the 1960s and ‘70s, and AGT truly is a variety show.

Ostensibly, the show is about discovering the next great heretofore unknown super star, and the prize for winning is a headline show in Las Vegas and $1 million.

deadly-games-1
Strong marriage:  Alfredo and Anna Silva, a husband and wife knife-throwing act called  Deadly Games, perform their dangerous feat during an episode of AGT this season.

Seems each year, I fall in love with a few acts, which ultimately get cut, usually, toward the end of the season when audience members and viewers at home cast votes, rather than the judges.  Such was the case with, Deadly Games, a husband and wife knife-throwing act.  The act was cut during the semifinals.

AGT claims it is looking for an act that is Las Vegas-worthy, but the judges seem to favor singers.  (Aren’t there enough stupid singing contest shows out there?)

deadly-games-2
What a gal: And your wife said no to just wearing pantyhose for you.

Not only was Deadly Games exciting and extremely dangerous, the duo of Alfredo and Anna Silva was professional in every way.  They stepped up the risk in each performance along their journey, always with a keen sense of timing and great showmanship.  The couple were edgy in every way right down to their sexy costumes, and the beautiful and exotic Anna always wore pantyhose.

Deadly Games was made for Las Vegas, and they richly deserved to advance to the finals (and even win).  I hope a professional agent contacts the Silvas and gives them their start.

Unfortunately, the AGT voting audience is likely mostly young people who cast their votes based on popularity and sympathy for each act’s personal back story, and they wouldn’t know (or apparently care) what a Vegas-worthy act is.   Between the horse’s hiney judges who claim to “love” practically every act, yet, aren’t honest with the ones who really have no chance of winning (i.e., no talent), and these young audience voters who somehow think AGT is really American Idol in different packaging, singing acts seem to get all the love.  This, while really truly Vegas-quality acts, such as Russian Bar, ThroWings, a husband and wife high wire act, and another of my favorites this season, a husband and wife act called Quick Change, get cut by goofball judges or unsophisticated audience voting.

Rather than try to explain the Quick Change act here, check out this video of the couple’s first audition:

https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=quick+change+magic+act&view=detail&mid=6C6EF86C7803396D3E6D6C6EF86C7803396D3E6D&FORM=VIRE

Of course I love that Victoria always wore beautiful short dresses and pantyhose with every outfit.  With Quick Change’s talent, I am sure they will find the fame and success they deserve.

Last word

I’ll leave you with this.  In the dashboard behind my WordPress blog, I can see the search terms people entered that led them to my blog.  One search phrase read: “Do Korean women wear pantyhose?”

hwasa-of-mamamoo
Red hot: Professional singer/dancer Hwasa of the Korean girl group, Mamamoo, is A-OK in red fishnet pantyhose.

Heck, that could be a future blog post for me, but for now, I’ll say this:  Probably much of the world realizes that pantyhose are deeply rooted in Asian culture; none more so than in Japan, where wearing pantyhose is a must for reasons of courtesy, femininity and just the right thing to do.  I think I love Japan.

I’ve also been following Korean professional models and Korean girl groups (singers/dancers/musicians), all of whom always wear sheer nude or suntan pantyhose on stage and during public appearances.

This picture (left) really caught my attention because … well, it’s really cute, and it shows how deeply seated pantyhose wearing truly is in Korea.  So much so that the performer is perfectly comfortable showing the waistband and part of her pantyhose above her shorts.

While I’m not a big fan of fishnet pantyhose, I like this very sexy look.  Thought you might like to see it, too.

Note: I noticed that none of the pictures here are expanding to a larger version when you click on them.  I always post pics that are in very high resolution (the one of Selena Gomez is 3600 x 2179) for your viewing pleasure.

My blog account was recently updated automatically, and I haven’t figured everything out yet, but this pictures thing is very important to me, so please know I am working on it.  For now, if you right click each picture and select View image, some will expand to, at least, a slightly bigger size.
