Sideline Pass: Cutie of the Week 11/15/09
By Nkeshi Free
Ladies, I want to know, whose arms are open wide for the receiver with the million dollar smile! I don’t know about you, but looking at Larry Fitzgerald puts a smile on my face!! Fitzgerald earned 2009 Pro Bowl MVP honors capping off a disappointing 27-23 loss in Super Bowl XLIII to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Fitzgerald was drafted third in the 2004 by the Arizona Cardinals, then coached by Dennis Green (yes, he is who you think he is, lol). In 2005 Fitzgerald was named to his first Pro Bowl after leading the league with 103 receptions for 1,409 yards and 10 touchdowns. Fitzgerald, arguably one of the best wide receivers in the NFL was nicked named “Sticky Fingers” for his ability to make amazing catches. I promise if he wants to catch me, I won’t run (lol)!!!
I have to start by giving Dhani Jones, some First- Pham love!!! This sexy ice-cold brother of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., sends shivers down my
spine!!! I love his hair, his signature bow-ties and forget “ice-cold” that smile can melt my heart any day!!! Jones’ nine year career began in ’00 when he was drafted by the New York Giants out of the University of Michigan. Since then he has played all over the NFC for the Eagles, Saints and currently playing in the AFC for the Cincinnati Bengals. When he’s not sacking opponents Jones travels the world for the Travel Channel series “Dhani Tackles the Globe.” The show features Jones learning how to play sports that are popular in other countries and how sports define cultures. He is also a businessman with his own line of signature men’s accessories, featuring most notably his bow-ties. Is it any wonder that this DC area native was named one of “People” magazine’s 2005 Hottest Bachelors?
Ask and you shall receive! Yes, Tom Brady is finally on the list (lol)!! What took so long you ask me, well, I had to show some
other players some love (ha ha ha)!!! When is Brady not getting recognized for his rugged good looks! Does anyone else see a resemblance to the “Duddly Do-Right” character on the “Rocky and Bullwinkle” re-runs (lol)!! Not only is Brady leading female fans hearts, he’s setting NFL records, not bad for a player drafted in the lowly sixth round of the 2000 Draft. Brady holds the record for most touchdown passes in a single season, been invited to five Pro Bowls, played in four Super Bowls, won three Super Bowls and is a two-time Super Bowl MVP. Oh and did I mention that he’s married to a super model? Wait, go back, and repeat, Brady was drafted in the SIXTH round… the 199 pick of the 2000 NFL Draft? Yes, it’s hard to believe that 198 people were selected ahead of Tom Brady, but I bet the Patriots aren’t complaining! Brady was a steal and when Drew Bledsoe went down with a season ending injury in 2001 Brady ran with this chance to lead the Patriots and never looked back! Brady may not be looking back, but we are looking forward to his future both on and off the field!
