If you haven’t realized it yet, Pants and I are sort of nerds (in a sexy, classy way of course). So it it is only natural that we have a soft spot for nerdy guys.
They are the ying to our yang. The milk to our cereal. The chips to our salsa.
Now, when they happen to be nerdy hockey players…well, that’s even better! Our hearts just explode with rainbows and glitter.
Take this week’s Foxy Friday, for example.
Is there anyone more adorkable? Seriously.
I mean look at him. He’s got to be one the nerdiest in the NHL.
But you know what? It makes him all the more foxier.
So let’s break it down. Why is Matt “Pass the Dutchy” Duchene deserving of such a prestigious honor like Foxy Friday?
He’s got the serious hockey flow. We all love the flow… when done correctly. (We’re looking at you, Steven Stamkos.)
He is a fan of nerdy things - just like us. Soulmate.
He’s got the sweet dance moves.
He love vodka. So do we, Matt. So. Do. We.
He loves country music. Which automatically makes Pants love him more.
Honestly, how can you not love a man who can go from this…
It’s called versatility, people.
He’s self-deprecating and goofy and he gives off the vibe that he doesn’t take himself so seriously. Which I’m sure most of us can attest to, is a very foxy quality in a man – hockey player or otherwise.
Obviously, we can’t forget Matt’s hockey skills, which is a large part of the reason why he is this week’s honoree.
He’s only got 25 points this season (12 G/13 A) but he did just returned to the lineup on Feb. 18th after missing 20 games with a knee injury.
But when you score flithy goals like this AND play on a line with Gabe Landeskog and Ryan O’Reilly (aka the Ultrasound Line), we don’t think it will take very long for Dutchy to remedy that situation.
