Goal!

Rychelle asked me to post pictures of "hot soccer dudes." Well really-how could I say no to that? Not everyone is aware of how awesome soccer really is---but if you see pictures of good-looking soccer players, maybe you'll be more inclined to appreciate the sport, no?

Frankie Hejduk---maybe not the best looking player. But his skill and 'don't mess with me' attitude make him all kinds of attractive.

Pat Noonan--you can tell just by looking at him that he's just a solid guy. I like that.

Brian McBride---my all-time favorite player ever! He met his wife when she came to one of his games and stayed to get his autograph. Awesome.

John O'Brien. Curly hair+red hair+soccer player=three of my biggest weaknesses.

Bobby Convey-the worst thing about him is he's off playing in Europe and I can't watch him as much.

Josh Wolfe---not much to say other than he's really hot, right? The guy in profile behind him is Eddie Pope---best defender ever and another of my favorites.


And here are some boys I've been privileged enough to actually play with.
My very first soccer team---I know it's kind blurry (my scanning skills are lacking), but if I have to point out which one I am we're not friends anymore.

One of my first BYU co-ed teams. I played with some of the people on this team for nearly 4 years.

The best team ever; Flava of Love. Yes, our team was named after a VH1 Reality Show. And we rocked---and took home the BYU Intramural t-shirt.

Oh, please tell me you enjoy yourself some Michael Ballack (German national playing for Chelsea). During the last World Cup, I could not get enough of him.

OHMYGOSH I love you so much more now... we are BBFF's for sure!!! I love soccer and I use to be pretty good... but I love to watch it also... and soccer guys are HOT!

Machen family said...

why don't you post more hot guys on your blog? it makes it so much more interesting..
next time don't forget the French national soccer team..there are some men on that team that can only be described as ooh la la.

So, I don't have any problems watching soccer...actually I LOVE watching it. But this post just confirmed to me that I should do it more! :D

P.S. I went to Cosi's finally! Loved it!

rychelle said...

Melissa Bastow said...

I clearly don't watch enough soccer.

sara said...

Nice picks and pics! And here I thought Beckham was the only one who looks good with his shirt off. Thanks for showing me the error of my ways.

OK, I am squinting at this picture trying to find you....Are you taking the picture? Where are you, Barbaloot?

Speaking of missing people, where is Beckham? Am I missing my mark on this one?

Whew, lucky for me --I found you in the little soccer league photo, now I can still be your friend. Pretty cool that you like soccer so much. My husbands brother is a big time soccer lover and played for Westminster College. I don't know much about soccer (sorry) BUT I COULD CERTAINLY ENJOY THE SPORT OF LOOKING AT THE HOT DUDES!!!

Erin said...

I love these pics! And I especially love the fact that Brian met his wife when she stayed behind to get his autograph. It almost seems like anyone could really have a chance with a famous person, right? Right?

Debbie said...

Well that was a mighty nice post to see! Anytime you want to do that is fine.

Page said...

I must add that the hottest soccer player I see on this post is the muscular, dark-haired dude with the yellow star on his shirt...

The rest just canNOT even compare!

Becca said...

It's your fault I have to go see my bishop tomorrow!

LisAway said...

Not a Beckham fan, eh? :) Just kidding. I'm not much for hot guys, really, but I DO know how great soccer is, as I'm living in Europe. :)

Shauna said...

L♥ve the pictures :)

Tiffany said...

This is a pretty sweet post! But where's the pic of the mighty Tornados?!? :)

Marcie said...

Truly, it is a GIVEN fact that hot boys are attracted to soccer. Baseball and Track??? THe tall way too-skinny boys. Football? The boys with some extra junk in the trunk that wear helmets and play at dark. nuff said.

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Thanks. I needed that.

Heidi Ashworth said...

Wow! Well, clearly I missed out when they were encouraging the girls to play soccer. A whole new world of totally cute guys!

Homer and Queen said...

Soccer playin' Barbie...that works...you need to spend time with McFly, she is such a girly girl it is embarrassing....

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

Enjoyed reading your blog tonight. I am still finding my way around blogland....I always love making new friends..I am posting about Disney so hope you will stop by. Commenting automatically puts you in the drawing for the June giveaway.

I am back at your site today, Barbaloot, staring at these photos. I see the pink sweatshirt, but there is also more than just one girl in the front row.

Hard to pick out your cute self, but I think I finally managed. Thanks!

Ok that looks SO fun!
What an awesome thing to do!!

Shelley said...

To answer your question on my blog...yes....for SURE! oh, by the way, I read all your posts.. but I feel dumb leaving comments on such great works of literature. Plus you get like 100 comments, very popular you are.

Kazzy said...

You may have just won over many women!

April said...

I don't know squat about soccer, but, I had my own intramural co-ed shirt for softball. :)

The Condies said...
