Henrik Lundqvist didn’t just have me at “I am from Sveeden, ya?” but when he mentioned in Time Out New York this week that he wore suits four-five days a week.
Much of it is an occupational thing — after all, he plays hockey that much per week, and wears suits as he travels with the team. Plus, I had the opportunity to get some photos of him at the Manhattan Center for a Rangers subscriber event and I think it was either Brandon Prust or Brian Boyle who said, “The invite said ‘business casual’ and Henrik looks like he’s going to the Prom!”
Sean Avery is clearly a goon on the ice, but he’s well-known in fashion circles, and even interned at Vogue for a time. I’m one of the few Rangers fans who actually loves Avery. I also like that he’s been outspoken against bullying and for marriage equality. Sports guys are supposed to be seen as “tough guys,” and though there’s no question about Avery being one, I admire that he’s so passionate about these things, stuff no sports guys ever were to talk about.
Oh and Brad Richards, our new guy? Made an appearance at Fashion Week…
More eye candy for the ladies came in the form of Mark Sanchez’s spread in GQ. Damn, he looks good in green, doesn’t he??? The cover story said “Thank God It’s Football Season.” All I could think is…let’s thank her for Mark Sanchez!!
Make no mistake: I am a sports chick, and I love attending games and watching them on TV…Hell, my husband and I might get divorced this weekend because I am pulling rank to watch the Jets game over the Mets game (on at the same time, thanks for the TV geniuses who didn’t consult with MY schedule).
That doesn’t mean, I can’t appreciate a good looking man, especially one in uniform.
