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!!!
