Western Conference Hotties "Month of Stars" - Week 2: Mike Modano (Dallas Stars)

As far as I'm concerned, he's an American hockey icon. He holds NHL records for American born players in 3 categories. (Goals scored by [537+], points recorded by [1300+] and points recorded by in the playoffs [145] Totally current numbers here).

IMPORTANT HOCKEY STUFF: Since I'm writing a blog post and not an encyclopedia, I'm just going to say that his career is EPIC! [VIDEO] [VIDEO] [VIDEO]You can read the details HERE and HERE. In addition to the above records, he's been and continues to be the “face” of American hockey and of the Dallas Stars. The first round (and first overall) draft pick of the Minnesota North Stars (now Dallas Stars) he's one of only 5 Americans to share this distinction in NHL history. He was Captain of the Stars for 4 years straight, [2003 to 2006] Some notable accomplishments (to me anyway) include – Personal best of 50 goals (1993/94), Most points in a game 6 [2-4-6], 7 career Hat Tricks and an Olympic Silver Medal (2002) [I don't know why, but Olympic medals really impress me]. But how does he play, you may ask. SMART! Easily one of the smartest players you will EVER see play. My favorite thing is when he makes 2 or 3 guys “bite” on him on a PP, and then passes it off for a goal or even scores it himself. Simply awesome.

THE REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF: THE poster boy, for what I call “shy sexy”. [VIDEO] - I can't agree more!! Just look at him grin, just once. You'll be in love instantly, you can't help it. [VIDEO] He's 6'3” 205lbs. and possesses the 2nd best hair in the entire NHL (more on that in a later post. And another aside, let it grow, Jordan, then we'll talk...) that dark blond/brown that's all frosty on top. I still have trouble remembering what color his eyes are. You know that amazing gold/brown color. Just about every time I look at them I fry braincells, so at least I do have a semblance of an excuse. He's always so calm, cool and collected. Makes me kinda want to see him come undone... you know... And check out this [VIDEO] That's what I'm talkin' about. There's passion in there underneath all that poise and class (and if that doesn't make you drool, you're dead). If your new to the sport. I highly recommend checking him out (I know I do at EACH and EVERY opportunity!). Sex in a suit (or a hockey sweater)... Yummy! [Kena comes up with the most amazing descriptive words that I just LOVE!]

The dish he brings to the “eye candy” table, is the “classic American boy-next-door” look. (Stephanie keeps telling me “vintage,” because hell never go out of style) [Kena was originally offended by my using this word for him; however, it was not intended to be negative. Modano has stood the test of time and I remember him from when I started watching hockey, so he's like a favorite blanket from childhood -- makes me all warm and fuzzy thinking back to such a great time] Unassumingly hot, but absolutely NO assumptions are necessary. Just don't scorch your eyeballs looking ladies. Remember, you're not supposed to look directly at a bright light and he is THE (Dallas) “Star.” [and THIS is darling!! (but you have to ignore Brett Hull)].

I just have to thank Kena for this post since I believe it's one of her BEST YET!!

Do you remember his cameo in the first Mighty Ducks movie? I think I've been a secret fan of his ever since.

Lauren said...

@Annie: ME TOO!

Great post, as always!

Who is the woman in the last picture with him? Is that his wife?

Stephanie said...

@Lauren -

I think that's just a fan; his wife is Willa Ford and I'm trying to post a picture, but can't in the comments (I'm gonna have to ask Kena for her permission to post an update to his WC Hottie because 1)it's her post and b)Dallas fans hate Willa!!! So check back (or maybe I'll just e-mail you)!!!

The woman in the bottom picture is a fan, not *that woman*.

Here you go -

OK, that didn't work...

Hopefully that will.

Lauren said...

Thanks Kena!

Can I ask why we don't like she-who-shall-not-be-named?

p.s. is she the same one who had a short-lived pop music career?

Kiki_isTHEbunny said...

Ah, the reason I moved to Fort Worth...the Mo man. My heart is all aflutter when it comes to him.

As to the reasons why we hate 'her'...the list is too long and I have no idea where to start.

But still love him in spite of her.

Life_As_A_Redhead said...

She's tried to have a career in just about everything. Which means yes.

As to why we all hate her...

Puckbunny, ad infinitum!!!! Pretty much sums it all up.
