And I mean that in the nicest way possible, because it’s true. From Outsports.com:
Being a red-blooded American gay male sports fan, I also notice more than just the players’ performance. Hence, the 2007 Outsports NFL All-Hot Team.
The criteria? Hotness, by my definition. It doesn’t matter how a player did on the field, whether he started or how much he played. As long as he was on an NFL roster this season and looked good he was eligible.
These selections, unless otherwise noted, are all mine. For some positions, I deferred to friends or readers, who were adamant about their choices.
It might not be the most reassuring thing to know that three former Golden Bears made the 2007 Outsports All-NFL Hot Team, along with such luminaries as Cleveland Brown legend Brady Quinn, former
amateur USC RB Reggie Bush, and the ruggedly handsome Jordan Gross.
I just don’t see it.
But we know why you’re here, because you love our Golden Bears, both past and present. Though probably not in the same way as those at Outsports.com do. So here were the honorees, along with comments. (Accompanying captions are mine.)
(I’d let him GUARD me any day! Oh my god that was an awful pun.)Offensive line
Most lineman leave me cold, being a bit too bulky, so I will defer to longtime contributor Jim Allen, who watches the games with me and named these as his faves:
Jordan Gross (Carolina); Leroy Harris (Tennessee); Chris Massey (St. Louis); Jon Runyan (Philadelphia); Chris Snee (New York Giants); Todd Steussie (St. Louis); Joe Thomas (Cleveland); Todd Wade (Washington); and Casey Wiegmann (Kansas City), who Jim notes is “still listed as single in his late 30’s. Hmmm."
(Maybe things like this explain why Fujita gets a lot of attention for a mediocre linebacker.)
Scott Fujita (New Orleans): One look at those arms and that handsome face makes Fujita a perennial all-pro on this team.
(Look at that beaming smile! Matt is one Colt who’s had something to be thankful for in the wake of the Colts’ loss on Sunday!)
Matt Giordano (Indianapolis): A pity that he shaved his head, but this Colt safety is one of the best-looking guys in the league and maybe the fastest player on the team.
Frankly, I’m shocked Tom Brady isn’t on this team every year, but that might be because he’s taken.
