Welcome to October 1Tweet
ANTHONY Stewart was one of the Cairns Taipans first heroes back in 2001 after he'd already enjoyed stints at Hobart and with Perth in the NBL.
So he was just the right man for the Orange to bare some skin in the NBL's first (and only) nude calendar.
The "Nothin' ... but skin" calendar hit stores in time for the Christmas rush, those of us in the media lucky enough to receive an advance copy.
I found mine during last summer's annual clean-up and knew at once most fans would enjoy seeing what one of the league's previous administrations was trying in a bid to pump up interest.
Would it work today? Nude calendars were all the rage for a while there but to be honest, it all seems a bit dated now.
Judging by the fact there has been no subsequent NBL nude calendar, most likely speaks for how well this one went.
