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!
Manti Te’o, one of the stars of the Notre Dame Football team recently fell victim to an elaborate hoax that is simply awful. The 21-year old met someone online a while back that went by the name of Lennay Kekua. He fell for her and they talked online and on the phone regularly. Kekua was believed to have passed away of leukemia on September 12, the eve of Notre Dame’s game against Michigan State, and only hours after Te’o’s grandmother had also passed. Still Te’o was able to channel his loss into a win for the team.
Now, because the story had received so much media attention, the hoax got exposed. Kekua never existed and it was a prank done by a group friends. The woman used in the pictures is still alive and well and had no idea this was going on and has never met Te’o.
This whole story is similar to the plot of Catfish, a movie where a man is being filmed by his brother and friend as he builds a romantic relationship with a young woman he met on Facebook… only to later find out she never existed. Watch ABC’s Diane Sawyer‘s report on the Manti Te’o story below.
Back in 2010, I wrote about NFL hottie Eric Decker as one of our featured Sports Studs. The 25-year-old is a wide receiver for the Denver Broncos and has recently signed on as one of the faces of Proactiv and is featured in an infomercial.
Here’s what Proactiv says about Decker’s struggle with acne and how their products helped him: “Eric Decker, wide receiver for the Denver Broncos, struggled with acne until his teammate gave him Proactiv his freshman year of college. Proactiv helped him achieve and maintain clear skin, which boosted his confidence both on and off the field.” You have to wonder how much money Proactiv spends on celebrity endorsements like Vanessa Williams, Jessica Simpson, and Justin Bieber, among countless others.
Watch the commercial below to see Decker footage of Decker working out, playing football, and in the locker room using Proactiv products while shirtless.
The people at BadLipReading.com must have an absolute riot when making these videos. Recent victims of their videos include One Direction, Twilight and an old one (but a good one) is Michael Buble’s “Haven’t Met You Yet” music video turned into “Russian Unicorns.”
In this new video, we see various conversations happening on the football field of the NFL, even an announcement from the referee at one point: “I went out with a girl this weekend. We just kept having a ball. Then I come over to hang out after the game and just…the floor’s just beanbags. So that’s when I’m a jerk to her cuz I’m like, ‘Yo pick up all your floor bags, you’re not living in Southeast Asia.” LOL. That’s just a taste of what to expect. The ones that are the most random and that make no sense are my favorite. For example: “An orange peanut! For ME?”
Watch the video below for a laugh. I wonder what Bad Lip Reading will tackle next!
With the rainy weather I’ve been experiencing the last several days, I decided to take a virtual trip to Australia for this week’s Sports Stud and highlight one of their fine athletic specimens: Lance “Buddy” Franklin (I’ll call him “Buddy” in this post). he’s 25 years old (almost 26) and plays for the Hawthorn Football Club in the Australian Football League. Even though he’s super tall (6’5″), he’s known for his speed and agility on the field, mainly playing centre half-forward, and sometimes midfield.
With him becoming a free agent when his contract ends at the end of the season, there was some concern that he might accept an offer from a rival AFL team, but his manager recently confirmed that he’ll be staying with the Hawthorn. Buddy’s performance on the field over the past several years has definitely made him an attractive consideration for rival teams.
As you look through the photos below, you’ll notice that Buddy has lots of tattoos and those are dedicated to his Indigenous heritage. Personally, I love his sleeve tattoo as I have been thinking about getting a half sleeve tattoo extending onto one side of my chest myself. There are also a few sexy pictures he posted onto Instagram that I’m sure you’ll appreciate.
Yesterday, the Calgary Stampeders and the Toronto Argonauts faced off at the 100th CFL Grey Cup in Toronto, with the Argonauts taking taking the title in the end. Recently, I wrote about some of the Argonauts players speaking out about homophobia.
During the halftime show, Canadian pop superstars, Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen performed two songs each. Although they may be two of the most popular Canadian pop stars right now (with Justin Bieber’s Oprah interview with Oprah airing in over 100 countries last night), I wouldn’t have pictured them as the right acts for football fans. Given that, apparently Justin Bieber was booed during his performances of “Boyfriend” and “Beauty and a Beat”. Although he may not be the type of music the football fans normally listen to, in my opinion I think that’s pretty lame for Canadians to be unsupportive of their own talent – especially one who has done so well for himself and worked so hard to get to where he his.
Carly Rae Jepsen, who Bieber has gone out of his way to support, performed “Call Me Maybe” and “This Kiss” during the show. Other performances included “Stutter” by Marianas Trench as well as a song by folk/pop/country singer, Gordon Lightfoot. Watch all of the performances below as well as the moment where the Argonauts took home the win.
For this week’s Who’d You Rather, we decided to highlight two NFL quarterbacks that both play for the New York Jets, are both routinely featured in entertainment magazines, and are both 25-years-old. The hotties are Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez.
Tim Tebow is the backup to starter Mark Sanchez and aside from his football and his signature “Tebowing” stance (“the act of kneeling on one knee in prayer with one’s head resting on one’s fist), many have focussed in on the fact that he’s still a virgin. He’s a devout Christian that does a lot for various not-for-profit organizations. Tebow is currently single and looking.
Mark Sanchez on the other hand is not single. He’s actually dating 37-year-old Eva Longaria! You know you’re hot when you’re dating that bombshell! Aside from also being quite philanthropic as well, An interesting fact about Sanchez is that he’s a huge musical theatre fan. “I’ve become a huge fan of musicals since I’ve come to New York, and I’ve taken some heat from guys on the team, believe me.”
Check out some of their photos below and as difficult as it may be, vote on who you’d rather between the two of them.
This week I decided to feature the sexy 26 year old wide receiver for the St. Louis Rams, Danny Amendola. I’m surprised I haven’t written about this hottie before actually.
Amendola first played for the Dallas Cowboys in 2008, then moved onto the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009 and is currently still playing for the St. Louis Rams. Last year, he was put on Injured Reserve after he had to get triceps surgery. Sidenote, his arms are huge.
He’s got some pretty sexy photos, thanks to a shirtless photo shoot he did last year for “Alive,” a lifestyle magazine in St. Louis. Check them out below!
