Game On: Why Sporty Guys Are SO Sexy

In a month filled with baseball playoffs, football and the start of hockey, our Shecky’s Staffer contemplates on something a little mystifying to her: Why is it sooo sexy when guys play sports? Personally, she’s not feeling the baseball babes ‘cause she’d rather watch studly men play action-packed, brutally barbaric sports. See her reasons, share your sports crushes, and tell us what sports you find sexiest…or if game-playing guys are not your thing!

“I’m not into violence or anything (hi, I’m the girl who has to use every ounce of self-control to not call my mom or boyfriend when I’m up all night after seeing a slasher flick), but I find it such a turn-on when guys play super-sweaty, savage sports. After attending a pre-season NHL game (my boyfriend loves the Rangers), a boxing match (FDNY vs. NYPD) and watching my beloved Sunday football (great win, G-Men!) in the past week, my love for sexy, sporty men is stronger than ever.

I definitely go for sporty guys (save the World of Warcraft nerd—can he just not count?!). I’ve dated dudes who have played rugby, hockey, lacrosse…. There’s something about watching a guy in the heat of competition, his hair falling into his face (so long as it’s not a hockey mullet or lax flow), sweat pouring down his brow, angry and fixated on annihilating his enemies—the other team. Call it cavewomanly, but it makes me feel sexy and I think about how he’ll be using all that manly strength on me later on (after he’s showered, of course!). And, obviously, the well-muscled godly body a guy gets from playing sports doesn’t hurt either (drooooool).

So whether it’s a famous sports fella (Eli Manning and Henrik Lundqvist, if you’re reading this, I’ve already cleared you on my celebrity exemption list) or my own boyfriend (a hockey player whose man crush on Lundi exceeds my own affections), I think sporty guys are the studliest things out there. They are some of the last real remnants of yesteryear’s beastly warriors, except instead of fighting in face paint with spears, they’re feuding for a puck and bloodshed is hopefully kept to a dull nosebleed after a bad body-check. As for the mellower sports like baseball and golf (sorry, Tiger!), you’re oooout/I’m not fiending fore you (okay, too much SportsCenter…).

GIRL TALK TIME: Do you love sporty guys? Who is/are your sports crush/crushes? Which sport do you think is sexiest? What games and sports are you most excited for this October? Are sporty guys your “type?” If not, tell us why!

    I am a basketball fanatic. I love to see the guys in their jerseys showing off their upper bodies. OMG! Have you ladies checked out LeBron’s upper body? Or Dwight Howard’s? It will leave you breathless.

    Guys who play sports definitely have a sex appeal. I am a huge baseball and hockey fan and right now, my Phillies are getting ready to start the playoffs and there are a few of them that are super sexy…jayson werth, chase utley, and even though i do not find ryan howard sexy, his muscles are insane! And i agree…the passion they show on the field is very attractive.

    So sexy! When done just right (not too aggressive that is) I think it has something to do with watching them in their element, getting excited and showing enthusiasm. I don’t see that a lot in guys and it’s awesome when it comes out!

    It’s the passion they show on the field. I married a baseball player who lives for the game. Who can resist that much energy – on and off the field! My choice for famous sports player – Derek Jeter. When he flashes that smile, couldn’t you just melt?
