This week’s beefy Sports Stud that I’m gonna tackle is pro rugby player, Luke O’Donnell. He played in the National Rugby League in Australia for the North Queensland Cowboys, but just recently left the NRL. Regardless, I still wanted to giddy up on this Cowboy and share some of his hot photos with you. The 30 year old was pretty much the biggest bad ass in the the league, considering when left, it was revealed that he was the most suspended player in NRL history, with 29 games suspended! He had some pretty rough and scandalous incidents. Naughty, naughty! I wouldn’t want this guy tackling me – unless the game we were playing was something other than rugby. Wink!
He may return to the NRL, as he hasn’t ruled it out as a possibility, but in the mean time, he’s keen on the Super League. In fact, he and his wife have already bought a house in England. Check out some of his sexiest photos below.
So let’s start with his name…Grady Sizemore. No, he’s not a porn star, but in addition to his from his name, he also does have a bit of an exhibitionist side to him. By profession, Sizemore is a Major League Baseball center fielder for the Cleveland Indians.
Aside from being a star in MLB, he’s also a star on the popular NSFW site “Guys With iPhones“. Not only are there photos of him on the site, but there is actually a dedicated section to his photos. Actually, I should clarify. He didn’t post the pictures of himself on the internet. A 19 year old girl named Leah Ayers was charged with hacking into Sizemore’s girlfriend, Brittany Binger’s computer. Scandalous! I’ve included some of them in this post. I had to cut a few of them off so they’re okay to post on the site, but there’s one where there’s only a coffee mug cover his parts and others where he’s in his underwear grabbing his balls and baseball bat. ;)
He’s been playing MLB for quite a long time, and in the 2006 season, he signed a 6-year contract with the Indians worth for $23.45 million with a club option for 2012.
This week’s Sports Stud knows how to handle his balls, and it’s none other than Danilo Gallinari of the NBA Denver Nuggets. Standing at 6 ft 10 inches tall, he’s one tall, sexy Italian Stallion. The “bello” man used to play for the New York Knicks, but in February of this year, transferred to his nuggets.
He signed an endorsement deal with Reebok before even being drafted into the NBA, getting his own sneaker called “The Rooster“. The name comes from his nickname “Gallo,” which is Italian for rooster.
He plays mostly in the small forward position, which is good…because he can be as forward as he wants. Now lets get some dipping sauce for those Nuggets.
Ben Cohen is Rugby Player and Gay-friendly icon to many in the UK and now, in the US. His physical appearance has garnered him a lot of gay followers and he has been known to speak very favorably of us and has even been known to take stand for us when the need has been. He was Gay Times’ sports personality of the year in 2008 and came in second place for their sexiest man of the year. Ben also appeared in Attitude magazine in 2009. In 2010, Ben signed a jockstrap to support GMFA and it was sold at an auction to support the charity.
Now, Ben is going one step further on his quest to favor the gays, bring awareness to homophobia and stop the bullying of youth in the schools. He is doing this through his Ben Cohen Acceptance Tour 2011. The tour will start in London and Manchester and then head across the pond to the US where he will make a 4 city stop.
I am passionate about standing up against homophobia and feel compelled to take action. It is time we stand up for what is right and support young people who are being harmed. As athletes, it is not enough just to have strong bodies. We must have strong characters and use our voices to support those who need and deserve it.
This week, we’re going down (under) on Kayne Lawton, an Australian Rugby League Player for the Gold Coast Titans in the NRL. He started his rugby career in 2008 and his position is hooker. Surprisingly, this guy is only 21 years old! Not surprisingly, he’s already taken part in the elite and delicious Gods of Football photo shoots to show off his goods.
In his past interview for Gods of Football, he revealed that he has a lucky pair of leopard skin underwear, listens to Lady Gaga, and in a personal ad, would describe himself as “fun, sporty and relaxed”. They also asked him how it was to take off all his clothes in front of the camera, to which he replied, “Nerve wracking but towards the end it was good fun! Yep, I would do it again.”
Lawton has an incredible body, but he works at it. He lifts three 145kg reps on the bench press as a regular part of his intense workouts. Certainly, if he decides to quick rugby, he’s got a career in modelling.
This week’s sports stud is Italian World Cup-winning footballer (or soccer player) Alberto Gilardiono. The striking 28 year old hottie fittingly plays as a striker for Serie A club Fiorentina as well as on the Italian national team. “Gila,” as some call him, played on the Team Italy in the 2004 Summer Olympics where they won bronze, as well as several world cups since then including being part of the most recent 2010 FIFA World Cup squad.
In a recent match over the weekend against Ukraine, Gilardino was named captain of the Italian team for the game, for which he was very grateful. “Wearing the captain’s armband tomorrow is a great gift from the national team. I want to say thank you and it’s an honour for me, especially when you think that previous players like Fabio Cannavaro and Gianluigi Buffon have had the captaincy,” he told the press. Seems to me likes he’s earned it!
This week’s sports stud is Italian stallion, Matteo Brighi. Standing at 5’10″, Brighi is a 30 year old professional soccer player who currently plays as a midfielder for club Roma.
He’s got pretty sweet salary, this past September having signed a 4-year contract, in which his annual salary increased to €1.8 million in 2010–11, increasing to €2.3M in the next three seasons. He’s a very noble guy in that even though he’s making the big bucks, he chooses not to live a life of excess, in consideration of an economic crisis where people are losing their jobs left right and center.
Brighi, whose birthday falls on Valentine’s Day is currently single (last I heard) but hopes to start a family soon. He better watch out for Snooki in next season’s Jersey Shore in Italy! Actually, they wouldn’t ever find themselves run into this handsome fellow at a club. He’s more of a home body and prefers to read a book, go to a movie, or have dinner with friends. Definitely long term relationship material as opposed to a one night “smush”.
This sexy 25 (almost 26) year old French diver from Laval, Quebec is this week’s Sports Stud. His name is Alexandre Despatie. He’s been the world champion at the 1m and 3m springboards from 2005 to 2007, and is the first ever (and so far only) World Champion in the 1, 3, and 10m platform categories. That’s pretty amazing! Go Canada! Speaking of which, he’s also the 36x senior diving champion. You know, no big deal. LOL.
His story began when he began diving at 5 years old, and caught the attention of the world at 13 years old when he won a gold medal on the 10m platform at the Commonwealth Games in 1998, getting into the Guinness Book Of World Records in 2000 as a result.
Fast forward through several medals and accomplishments, at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, he got the silver medal in the 3m springboard and in 2010 he won 3 gold medals for Canada at the Commonwealth Games. This sexy diver is definitely a frontrunner for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London for Canada. You may recognize him for some of the broadcast coverage he did during the 2010 Winter Olympics while taking a little break from training. Can’t wait to cheer for him next year!
