Wow. It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Foxy Friday and even longer since it featured a Boston University Terrier. So, folks, for my 1st FF post of 2011, I introduce you to…
Aside from the obvious physical attributes (6’1″, 214 lbs) and hockey pedigree (Dad was an NHLer for 12 season), Colin or “Willy” as he is affectionately known, is a great young hockey player with serious superstar potential, poise, and a smile that can just mesmerize. Don’t believe me? Watch this. (also, serious Gun Show at the 4 min mark)
Now be honest…you sort of love him now, dontcha? I know I do. I want to wake up with him on Sunday morning and do crossword puzzles while we eat blueberry pancakes. I believe that in a few years, Colin has the potential to become a great ambassador for the NHL and the sport of hockey, a la Sidney Crosby. He’s handsome, well-spoken, and looks pretty at ease in front of the camera. (Pants, think you had some media training at COM?) Not hard to imagine him staring in CCM ads and Winter Classic teaser trailers.
While not putting up insane numbers or 8 bajillion point streaks (yet), he could. Colin is the kind of guy that you’d want on your team because he is fun to be around, happy, and unpretentious. He’s sort of a geek with his love of video games, history, and Greek mythology and you know how much we at WUYS LOVE “adorkable” guys like this. I can watch the History Channel with him and not feel bad about myself. Also, his love of Greek gods is especially apropos considering that he pretty much looks exactly like one!
Now back to the hockey…which believe it or not, is the real reason for this post…
Other reasons why Colin is Foxy…
- played two years at Boston University, where he helped lead his team to the 2009 National Championship
- one of three finalist for the Hobey Baker, losing out to teammate (and fellow FF honoree) Matt Gilroy
- was Team USA Most Outstanding Forward at 2009 World Juniors
- USA Hockey College Player of the Year (2009)
- Inside College Hockey Player of the Year (2009)
So, you see? It’s really not that hard to see why Colin would make our Foxy Friday list. He’s got it all. Crazy hockey skills, movie star good looks, and a smile that can pretty much turn any woman into a pile of goo.
Plus looks like he can really bust a move…
P.S. As a BU season ticket holder for years now, I got to watch Wilson play during his two years there and even then you could tell that he was different. From the minute he stepped on the ice, you knew that this kid was destined for the NHL. He was big and every stride was strong, powerful, and pretty much effortless. Like Teddy Riley and Blackstreet, Colin was on Another Level.
P.P.S. He also kind looks like hotter, American version of Irish singer, Brian McFadden (of whom I am a fan). Don’t you think so, Pants?
