Well folks, it’s the final Friday of April, which means the final entry for the Foxy Friday Fan Challenge.
This week, Brenda (@wishinonehand) wins again. We swear it isn’t nepotism, but when you submit good stuff, we have to share it.
And this one is most defintely a keeper.
Sadly, we don’t get to watch much Red Wings hockey but next season we’re about to watch a WHOLE lot more.
We definitively don’t mind seeing more of this guy.
Don’t mind at all.
[Chuck's note: His beard. Good lord the beard. I'm swooning here. Quick! Someone get a me a chaise that I can swoon dramatically on to.]
How Swede It Is
In case it hasn’t been said before… thank you, Sweden. You are so generous with your vast foxy fortunes. You have given us:
Why yes, that IS a Norse god.
He may have retired from hockey, but he will never retire from hotness.
His foxiness even transcends a Canucks jersey.
This is the very definition of ruggedly handsome.
Henrik & Joel Lundqvist (Twinsies!)
Don’t know what’s going on here.
Don’t much care, either.
The young & the foxy.
Now that is an embarrassment of riches, right there.
But you, Sweden, you did not stop there.
You dug deep into your foxy reserves and also bestowed upon us…
Henrik Zetterberg (and a pug)
All of a sudden I’m feeling very motivated to learn Swedish. Do you think Rosetta Stone has rush shipping?
Wonder how you say “ridiculously hot”? I’m going to go with “Henrik”.
The Cliff’s Notes on Henrik are as follows:
- Born October 9, 1980. (perfectly age appropriate)
- 6’1″ & 195
- Wasn’t drafted until the seventh round (210th overall)
Zetterberg also has a pretty impressive resume and collection of hardware – a Stanley Cup, a Selke Trophy, Conn Smythe, a Olympic Gold Medal, and a whole host of others.
He has complied the sort of resume that makes GMs drool. And also Wayne Gretzky apparently. Gretzkey said “I think Zetterberg is the best player in the game (at his age)… he’s just very special. I think he’s the best Swedish player they’ve ever put into the National Hockey League, and there has been a lot of great ones.” High praise from the greatest hockey player of all time ever.
And that is what we call ‘salty’
If this oh-so-foxy-face looks familiar to you, maybe it’s because this guy has not one but two famous doppelgangers:
We love you, Jordan Catalano!
Even when he’s trying to look mean, he melts your heart.
Henrik did his best to end the lockout this summer – by wearing it on his chest.
Henrik Zetterberg: sartorial zen master and hero.
Zetterberg is so foxy that he even inspired a web series a la “The Office”.
Ladies and Gentleman – meet Fake Zetterberg.
Before we go, how about a little word association? I’ll name an adjective, and then Henrik will demonstrate it.
Lustrous (specifically, hair)
Let us all give thanks and praise to the almighty country of Sweden.
Oh, can we get a hug?
Many thanks to all that submitted your entries for our 1st Foxy Friday Fan Challenge!
