I'm Not a Brodeur Fan, But ...

I think he's trying REALLY HARD to win me over because this is what I had staring back at me in my inbox today (The All-Decade Team edition of The Hockey News)!! I must admit, it's working just a little!!

Just look at him there all manly with that big, bulky man-watch and clunky man-chain in regular man-clothes --- EESH!! Or is it just me?!!

No, no, NO ... I'm not falling for it, Brodeur - I don't care how sexy you look in this photo and how many of your firm, curvy muscles I see under that tight, red shirt of yours!!! [NOT looking!]!!

I AM a hockey fan, so I do realize he's a kick-ass goalie and can appreciate him on that level; however, I personally can't get past his cheating on his wife, Melanie Dubois, with their sister-in-law, Genevieve (if you aren't up on this part of his life, read all about it, HERE, HERE, and HERE). And what's odd is the fact that from everything I hear and read about him (other than about his cheating on his wife), he's described as a 'stand-up' guy and 'class-act' (not the words I'd use to describe a CHEATER!)!!

I suppose there are three sides to every story (his, hers, and the truth), so it's possible there's more to it then what we read and he obviously loved her (it wasn't just a fruitless affair) because he ended up marrying her in 2008 and they just recently had their first child together -son, Maxime Philippe - back in November, but ....

NO, Brodeur -- I won't do it, I refuse to fall for your whore-ass!! I have to stop looking at that picture now ...

But since I already started this post (and actually started it back on the day after he reached his 104th shut-out against the Penguins) -- I suppose there's a part of me that wants to finish it or else it wouldn't keep nagging me to finish. Perhaps this post will be cathartic for me like getting treated for an addiction, but this is FAR from an addiction ... I just have a really soft spot for handsome hockey players.

OK, maybe he's not such a bad guy. I mean, he has five kids each of whom's initials appear on his helmet (AW!)!!

Did he just win me over? DAMN IT, Brodeur!!!

; )

I'm not looking, la la la, I'm not looking, la la la! (Imagine this sung.) I've developed a really good hate for him after the past couple games against the Penguins, and I don't want to stop it now!

I'm also not typing the Jerry Springer joke on the tip of my fingers.

The funny thing about this post is that it was going one way with it and I seriously ended up thinking he's not a bad guy (looking more into the facts that I knew before)!!

It is pretty Jerry Springer and my husband and I and Kena still joke about it (but it actually wasn't his wife's sister ... it was his brother-in-law's wife ... his sister's, brother's wife, I think ... if you can't understand that!)!!

I CAN hear it being sung!!!

FUNNY (I amused myself with this one!)!!

I really don't like him for the whole cheating thing,even if he is a good goalie, and I'm a Rangers fan...so of course you can't like the Devils.

I love how you do your posts, they are so honest and funny!

Val said...

@CrackerLilo - thx for making my comments so much easier because I can just write "I'm with you," lol!

@Stephanie - it's the cover, what were they thinking when that picture was chosen; I got it in my inbox today, as well, and must admit, I sort of sighed!

I AM a Brodeur fan and I LOVE this picture! I can't wait to get this.

Stephanie said...

@SarahBeth -- I'm glad you enjoy my posts!!

@Val -- I can still enjoy looking though!!

@Sunshine36616 -- I hope you get your issue soon, but until then, feel free to visit as often as you like!! ; P

THANKS for the comments -- keep them coming!! : )

Marty gets a bad rap over the business with Mel, but I think it's a classic case of what happens when you marry too young. He and Mel were together since childhood practically and obviously, people change over time. He certainly didn't handle it in the best manner, but he isn't the ogre people make him out to be either.

I have to say when I first saw this cover my first thought was "DAMN!". When the hell did Broduer go and get all hot? That red shirt alone is winning me over.
I don't know what to think of his personal life, except to say it is his personal life and none of my business. That said, it is disappointing that he handled things so poorly.
Anyway, he's on a hot streak as a goalie and with this picture, well, he's just on a hot streak in general. ;)

I agree, Riosrogue. He made some bad decisions, but we all do. And like was posted, it's not like it was a one night stand. He and Gen have been together ever sicne, married in the summer of 2008 and had a baby this year. Did I mention I love me some Marty? lol

Okay... so I think Brodeur is a great goalie, but that's about all the "props" I'll give him. I do have to say, he is attractive...

*Closes eyes and thinks of Jordan Staal**

aaaahhh... that's better.

Ally said...

Just dropping by to have another appreciative stare at that picture. ;) I need to get my hands on this magazine!!!!

Ohkay, he is one of the best goaltender's i've seen.
But your right, we shouldn't look, not after THAT!
