The featured Sports Stud this week is Brady Quinn, backup quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks. He only just signed on as the backup to QB to Russell Wilson on April 11 of this year. The handsome football hottie has previously played for the Kansas City Chiefs, the Cleveland Browns and the Denver Broncos. Prior to that he played college football for Notre Dame. While there, he graduated with dual degrees in political science and finance.
Brady Quinn is 28 years old, 6’3 and 235 lbs… basically what I’m trying to say is, “Hello to you, big boy ;)” He’s been featured in many magazines, including Men’s Health and I’ve included some of those photos below. Enjoy!
Jason Collins’ historic coming out not only put the spotlight on the NBA, but on other sports as well. Up until then, there had never been an openly-gay active player in any of the major sports leagues – NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL. Though outside the big four, tennis has also never had an active “out” professional men’s tennis player. Inspired by Collins’ public outing, two former tennis pros have taken a stand against homophobia in sports.
Andy Roddick and Mardy Fish become the first male tennis players to join Athlete Ally. The organization is a nonprofit sports resource encouraging all individuals involved in sports to respect every member of their communities, regardless of perceived or actual sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, and to lead others in doing the same. Sexy wrestling stud Hudson Taylor founded the nonprofit back in 2011. Check out Roddick and Fish’s statements on why they joined below, along with a video posted by Athlete Ally thanking Collins’ for his courage.
One of my favorite online retailers, Mr. Porter, has teamed up with Equinox Fitness which is launching here in Toronto next month.
This is a unique take on advertising as both companies share expert advise on a well lived life when it comes to fashion and fitness. We all know that a fit physique makes for a great frame for amazing clothing.
In the clip Chernow, who is co-owner of the team behind the Meatball Shop chain of eateries, is followed in his daily routine, from breakfast to biking around Manhattan and finally a workout at the end of his work day.
For this week’s Sports Stud, I decided to highlight 23 year old (24 in July) Welsh footballer/soccer player, Gareth Bale. Aside from the fact that I find soccer players to be super hot (legs!!), I was inspired to choose a soccer/football player because I myself and some of my friends are starting up a new season this week and I’m pretty excited.
At the moment, Bale plays for English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur and the Wales national team as a winger. He’s been a stand-out player over the last few years and has really contributed to the Tottenham’s success domestically and in the Champions League. He lives in London with his high school sweetheart Emma and the two have a daughter together that was born this past October.
Check out his photos below. He’s got beautiful eyes, a great body, and those sexy signature soccer player legs that I love. Enjoy!
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.
