This one really tests my ability to analytical and impartial for two reasons:
- I don't like the Avalanche
- I don't find the guy but moderately attractive (just hang with me and you'll see why I decided to offer him up as an example of WC Hotness).
I have been informed on several boards that I am clueless when it comes to the EXTREME hotness of Joe Sakic. I've never sampled any of my female friends (they wouldn't comment on a hockey player anyway), but I have seen him mentioned innumerable times and in various locations on the internet as hot. Soooo, in the interest of being fair to all of you out there and giving you fair and unbiased representation of the "hot guys in the west," I invite your comments. Sell me on the idea that Joe Sakic is REALLY HOT!
IMPORTANT HOCKEY STUFF: He is the undisputed leader of the Colorado Avalanche. Having been their Captain during every season of their existence. He's a scoring machine and has been one of the most productive forwards in the game, having scored 50 goals in a season on two separate occasions and earning at least 100 points in a season, six different seasons. He's appeared in 13 All-Star Games, so if you're one of those folks who judges how hot a guy is by how good of a player he is (I have to admit it's a goodly portion of the equation for me in most cases), then Sakic is for you. [that's Peter Forsberg with Sakic in the picture to the left]
THE REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF: He's 5' 11" 195 lbs. [this is where you have to help me a little. I'm obviously missing something really important here] with dark, wavy hair and dark eyes. I don't know that much about his personality, except for the fact that pretty much EVERYONE who plays for the Avs (and most of their fans) would follow him unconditionally through the bowels of hell while whole-heartedly believing that they're going to get a Stanley Cup down there no matter how bad the team is STINKING. And that has to count for something, doesn't it?!
