Although he is now a retired tennis player, this week I’ve decided to feature the sexy 33-year-old Marat Safin from Russia. During his career, he won two grand slam tournaments and reached the World No. 1 ranking. Although he was known for his hot temper on the court (he holds the record for most broken racquets in a year with 87), he was also known for being hot – LOL.
He started his professional career in 1997 and retired in 2009. Looking back at his career, he is recognized as one of the most talented players of the 90s and 2000′s. His good looks and sexy body (which includes a few tattoos) definitely got him some attention – and still does.
Outside of tennis, in an interview with USA Today he stated, “I’m Russian, but I’m 100% Muslim. All the Muslim people are passionate, stubborn. We have hot blood.” Check out his sexy pictures below!
When someone mentions celebrity fitness videos, Jane Fonda quickly pops to mind. After all, she practically invented the genre with her highly-successful exercise videos in the 80s. Naturally, everyone and their dog wanted to jump on the fitness bandwagon. Even The Golden Girl’s Estelle Getty made one. Til this day, stars are still sharing their workout routines to make a bit of extra cash.
BuzzFeed recently shared some vintage fitness videos from back in the day. There’s something about the production values during the 80s and early 90s that makes everything super cheesy.
Since the Reunion Part 2 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs tonight, I thought I’d share BuzzFeed’s list. For those who don’t watch the Bravo reality show, this season was all about the competing Stallion Booty and Donkey Booty workout videos. Check out a few of my favorites vintage ones below.
Whether you’re a pitcher or catcher, I’m sure you’ll find this week’s Sports Stud a treat. As we’re now into Spring, I thought I’d highlight an athlete from a sport we’ll be seeing a lot of over the summer months – baseball. This week’s hottie is 21-year-old Mike Trout who plays MLB (Major League Baseball) for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He’s so beefy, it’s hard to believe he’s only 21!
Still very early in his career, he’s definitely one to watch. He was named the second-best overall baseball prospect by Baseball America in July 2010 and made ESPN’s Keith Law’s top 100 prospects list in 2011. These are just a couple of the recognitions he’s received in the past couple years.
His nicknames included “Millville Meteor,”"Prince Fish”, MT Hammer and “King Fish 2.0″, in reference to retired Angel Tim Salmon. He’s super sexy so keep your eye out for him on the field. In the meantime, check out some of his photos below!
What defines a Sports Stud? Sometimes it’s the muscles. Sometimes it’s their drop dead good looks. Other times it’s their athletic accomplishments. In certain cases, it’s their courage to stand up for what is right. That’s exactly why I decided to highlight Connor Barwin as this week’s sexy athlete.
When asked, the 26-year-old Philadelphia Eagles outside linebacker has always stood tall as an LGBT ally. Even if he didn’t have a gay brother, I firmly believe he would have the same stance. Check out his response he recently made when someone questioned him if an openly-gay athlete would become a distraction for a team.
“I don’t think it would be selfish. As a heterosexual man, I can’t speak to what it must feel like to be gay in the NFL. I don’t know what somebody goes through. I imagine it’s very hard to go through. So I would support that teammate no matter what.”
“I don’t think it would be a distraction. And even if it was, the NFL has distractions in every locker room. You would work through it like anything else. If somebody had a problem with a teammate being gay, they would realize very quickly that it was something they could get over.” – Connor Barwin
Pretty hot, right? As they say, the sexiest muscle on a man is his brain. So true. Check out a slew of Connor playing on and off the field below. Enjoy. If you have any suggestions for future Sports Stud, please share them in the comments section.
Since I’m filling in for this week’s Sports Stud, I thought I’d put my own spin on things. I decided to think outside the box and pick a personal trainer. That’s athletic enough, right? In my defense, he’s also a professional soccer player. That being said, I couldn’t figure out which league he plays in. Whatever! He’s hot and has a smoking body. Enjoy.
Tal Evans is a 25-year-old Aussie hailing from Canberra. He currently works as a personal trainer at TEAM FITNESS. Check out a few photos I found on his Model Mayhem account and from a recent shoot with photographer Jimmy Walsh. There’s a couple of pics that are just beyond titillating. The nipple pinching one and another where he looks like he’s chaining himself to a bed are too much. Brace yourself for your temperature, among other things, to rise.
In January, Kwame Harris was outed as a homosexual after being involved with a domestic with an ex-boyfriend. A couple of months later, the former San Francisco 49er is making it official. Harris talked with CNN reporter Coy Wire about his regrets on not being open about his sexuality while he was a pro football player. Coincidentally, both Wire and Harris played ball together during their Standford days.
“Now when I look back in hindsight, if I could’ve done it differently,” Harris said, “I would like to think that I would find the strength or find the fortitude or the grace to, kind of, make the hard decision.” – Kwame Harris
As of yet, there has never been a current professional athlete playing in the big four sports to come out. Harris wants to encourage other athletes to be themselves, but understands how hard it can be in the locker room. Definitely watch the CNN clip below. Not only does it show Kwame’s interview, but it also covers homophobia and LGBT straight allies in professional sports.
This week, I decided to do something totally different and I’ve selected a well-known professional ice dancer (a discipline of figure skating which draws from the world of ballroom dancing) from France named Sylvain Longchambon. He’s super handsome and i thought it was time to choose a different athletic discipline other than the usual soccer or rugby player hotties.
The 32-year old actually was part of the 2011 series 6 cast of Dancing On Ice where he was partnered with soap actress, Jennifer Metcalfe. He withdrew from series 7 after tearing a tendon in his right biceps while training with partner Heidi Range. This year, he is planning on returning to Dancing On Ice and has been partnered with Samia Ghadie who he is now dating. Very cute couple.
Check out his ridiculously sexy pictures below. Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
The Canadian Health Ministry has just released some rather creative and humerous PSA videos to get an important point across. The first video is all about Social Nibbling and how a guy doesn’t have to buy his own nibbles, he can just have some of other people’s nibbles and just does it for fun. The second PSA is about Social Farting and in the video, a woman talks about how she’s not a farter, she’s a social farter. In the third video, it’s all about Ear Wax Picking. In that video, the woman talks about how ear wax picking is a great way to meet people and that she feels like she looks good doing it.
The point they’re trying to make is with relation to smoking and how social smoking is still smoking. The video is part of their “Quit The Denial” campaign. “Social nibbling, social farting, and social ear wax picking are as ridiculous as social smoking. Research shows that almost 2/3 of young people who finish just one cigarette will become daily smokers.” Watch the videos below!
