Sports Stud: Griff Whalen

For this week’s Sports Stud, I took a suggestion from a friend and have decided to feature a hottie from the NFL named Griff Whalen. He is a wide receiver for the Indianapolis Colts.

My friend came across him in reading about the fact that he is Vegan (and so is my friend – hence his interest in him). His wife got him into the diet after they had explored the health benefits to doing so. I find this interesting because it’s not often you hear about professional athletes that are Vegan and this case, he’s proving that it’s possible. “I feel a lot lighter, faster, quicker on the field,” He told the Indianapolis Star of the diet’s effect on his performance, something that naysayers often scrutinize heavily in the NFL when a player begins to eschew meat. “There isn’t that heavy feeling, that groggy feeling after I eat.” A vegan diet claims to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes. It has been said that vegans live, on average, 12 years longer than their non-vegan counterparts. “It’s all been proven,” he says.

Another random fact is that he and I share the same birthday - although he’s only 24 years old… and I’m… a tad older. Check out his photos and videos below!

18 months ago, Jason Collins made headlines by coming out on the cover of Sports Illustrated. He became the first openly-gay man in one of the four major professional team sports to do so. Instead of facing backlash, Collins was inundated with support from fellow ballers, celebrities and politicians. His number 98 jersey, honoring slain Matthew Shepard, even became a top seller at the NBAStore.com.

The 35-year-old athlete once again uses the media outlet to make a major announcement. The Brooklyn Nets center reveals he’s leaving the league after 16 seasons. It’s only fitting he ends his career where it all began… with the Nets. Back then though, they were based in New Jersey. During his career, he also played with the Memphis Grizzlies, Minnesota Timberwolves, Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards. Read a couple of excerpts from his letter below.

On Wednesday at the Barclays Center, I plan to announce my retirement as an NBA player. The day will be especially meaningful for me because the Nets will be playing the Bucks, who are coached by Jason Kidd, my former teammate and my coach in Brooklyn. It was Jason who cheered my decision to come out by posting on Twitter: “Jason’s sexuality doesn’t change the fact that he is a great friend and was a great teammate.”

For this week’s Sports Stud feature, I’ve decided to highlight the 2015 Warwick Rowers from the UK. They’ve just launched their 2015 Calendar at an event hosted by none other than Sir Ian McKellen.

A bit of background, only five short years ago, the rowers at Warwick University were a just a middle-ranking sports club with insufficient funds to repair their boats. When their first calendar was created in 2009, everything changed. Since then, the calendar & associated products have been sold to over seventy countries and the boys have created a lot of awareness for some very important causes.

The story of how a bunch of broke students created this calendar that took on the world is encapsulated in their latest two minute viral video, which I have included below. The full version of the film has been getting great reviews. “This is a very polished piece of film-making,” says a senior BBC executive. “It tells the story of what these guys have achieved with heart, wit and flair. I’m deeply impressed.” Check out the video and some pictures below.

For this week’s Sports Stud we have the incredibly sexy and woof-worthy, Luke Burgess. The 27-year-old athlete is an English professional rugby league footballer in the National Rugby League (NRL) for Australian club, South Sydney Rabbitohs.

His brothers are also super hot rugby players and we’ve even previously featured one of them (George Burgess) as a Sports Stud. George has a twin brother named Tom that plays professional rugby, and also their other brother Sam does as well. These guys will have you saying “YES!” to Burgess. The four of them were featured on a Buzzfeed article earlier this year that was titled, “Stop Everything And Look At These Four Hot Rugby Player Brothers.” These are guys are almost too much to handle at once… so start with Luke in the pictures below.

Luke Burgess’ other half is model Yolanda Hodgson, a contestant of Australia’s Next Top Model in 2011. The happy couple share a daughter together, born in May of 2013. Check out his photos below, as well as a couple videos. I’ve also included a link to his Instagram… should you be thirsty for more. Enjoy!

Sports Stud: Kyle Kingsbury

For this week’s Sports Stud, we’re featuring UFC fighter Kyle Kingsbury. Back in July of this past summer, he made headlines for making a statement with his underwear at his pre-fight weigh-in. The underwear read, “Legalize Gay“. The 32-year-old straight ally has planned to retire from mixed martial arts.

Back in 2008, Kingsbury was a cast member on Spike TV‘s The Ultimate Fighter: Team Nogueira vs. Team Mir.. While on the show, there was an incident / prank where he secretly ejaculated or “splooged” on someone’s leftover sushi and left it in the fridge for another drunk cast mate to eat as a joke. The guy did end up eating it after he was craving a late night snack. The bearded hunk refers to the concoction as “splooshi“.

Watch a video of him describing the incident, as well as a video of his “Legalize Gay” weigh-in and more below.

For this week’s Sports Stud, we’re featuring a sexy NFL quarterback named Cam Newton. He plays for the Carolina Panthers and is the only player in the modern era to be awarded the Heisman Trophy (awarded annually to the most outstanding player in college football in the US whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence), win a national championship, and become the first overall pick in the NFL draft all in the same one-year span. Pretty impressive!

Outside of the game, Newton is known for his sense of style and has been on the cover of GQ Magazine and has been featured in ads for Under Armour. He is also a motivational speaker.

Check out his sexy pictures and watch his “Huddle Up” video series sponsored by Under Armour below to learn more about him.

According to several media outlets including Billboard, the answer is ‘yes.’ Katy Perry reportedly beat out Coldplay and Rihanna to score the coveted gig taking place on Sunday, February 1 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

A few weeks ago, rumors surfaced the league was asking performers to pay to play at the prestigious event. When asked recently about this she replied, “I’m not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl.”

Good for her. Personally, I think it’s extremely shady for the NFL to ask musicians to pay to perform and also snag some of their post-Super Bowl tour income. Doesn’t the league earn enough money. I really hope Perry stood her ground and didn’t offer up a penny to the league. This would create an awful precedent.

What do you think of Perry holding down the fort at the 2015 Super Bowl? How do you think it’ll stack up to recent shows by Bruno Mars, Beyonce and Madonna. Do you think the NFL crossed the line by asking performers to pay? Weigh in below.
