Today’s matchups feature one of the world’s biggest porn stars, a sarong-clad pinup girl, “The Pistol,” and a 79-year-old who’ll still run your ass over. (For Day 5’s results, click here.)
FOXES: Stormy Daniels (3) vs. Dorothy Lamour (14)
Back when she was editor of the Scotlandville Magnet High School newspaper and president of the 4-H club, No. 3 seed Stormy Daniels was known as Stephanie Gregory Clifford. She started stripping at a club in Baton Rouge at the tender age of 17, and by 21, she was performing in adult films. Four years later, she began directing for Wicked Pictures, and though she’s no longer active in front of the camera, she is still considered their leading performer. She was crowned the “No. 1 Porn Star in the World” by Genesis Top 100, and she is a member of the NightMoves Adult Entertainment, AVN, and XRCO Halls of Fame, as well as countless men’s spank banks. Also, in 2010, she almost thought about running against U.S. Sen. David Vitter.

Stormy’s opponent never did porn (as far as we know), but she was a pinup queen and is best known for a series of films in which she starred with the same two men. No. 14 seed Dorothy Lamour was born Mary Leta Dorothy Slaton in 1914 in New Orleans, was crowned “Miss New Orleans” at age 16, and became a huge Hollywood star with her role as the sarong-clad Ulah in the film The Jungle Princess. However, she’s best known for starring alongside Bing Crosby and Bob Hope in the Road to… comedy movies, which are better-known today as the inspiration for several episodes of Family Guy.
JOCKS(es): Pete Maravich (3) vs. Jim Taylor (14)
No. 3 seed “Pistol” Pete Maravich played at LSU when NCAA rules didn’t include the three-point line and didn’t allow freshmen to play on the varsity team. Yet, the long-range shooter from Aliquippa, PA, still managed to finish his career with 3,667 points and an average of 44.2 points per game, both NCAA Division I records that still stand 45 years later and will likely never be challenged. After a 10-year professional career with three different NBA teams, including the New Orleans Jazz, Maravich became one of the youngest players ever inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, where the legendary ball handler was cited as “perhaps the greatest creative offensive talent in history.” Oh, and there’s a building on the LSU campus named after him, too.
And at age 79, he’ll still whip all our asses.
Like Maravich, 14th-seeded Jim Taylor was an All-American at LSU, had a 10-year professional career, and played for a New Orleans franchise during its inaugural season. After earning MVP honors at the 1958 Senior Bowl, the fullback was drafted in the second round by Green Bay, where he helped Vince Lombardi’s Packers win four NFL championships and Super Bowl I. After nine years of punishing defenders with his physical style of running in Green Bay, the Hall-of-Famer spent his final year as a pro playing for the newly formed New Orleans Saints. Nearly 50 years later, Taylor still owns many Packers team records, including both career and single-season touchdowns. And at age 79, he’ll still whip all our asses.
Ready. Set. VOTE! (Polls close nightly at 10 p.m. CDT.)
