Happy New Year! Happy Foxy Friday!
It’s our First Foxy Friday of the Year and we’re starting it off right.
It all actually started in 2013 when there I was, just minding my own business, drinking a glass of delicious scotch, talking on the twitter, when WUYS reader @sarahconnors drops this Foxy Friday bomb on me.
“WHO THE HELL IS THIS?”, I exclaimed. “IS HE REAL LIFE? I don’t believe you.”
Yes it is, friends. And his name is Roman Josi.
The Swiss are known for a few things – Chocolate. Emmental cheese. Political Neutrality.
Devastatingly handsome hockey players is not one of them.
God Bless Switzerland.
The 23-year-old Swiss went pro in 2006 with his hometown team, Schlittschuh Club Bern. In 2008, the 6’1″ defensemen was selected by the Predators in the 2nd round (38th overall) in the NHL Entry Draft.
While he is fairly new to the NHL season (only having made his debut in 2011), Josi has represented Switzerland in number of international competitions, including the 2010 Olympics and the 2013 Hockey World Championships, where he was named MVP.
This season, Roman has 12 points. He is also -14, but when you look this good, does it really matter? With this visage, I really don’t want him taking any unnecessary pucks to the face.
Besides the glaringly obvious, what else makes Roman Josi worthy of this Foxy Friday honor?
He likes long walks on the beach, followed by meditation while staring off in the middle distance.
His best friend can beat up your best friend.
Couple of years in Nashville and already he’s turning into a cowboy.
His cornhole game is as tight as his pants.
He wears a deep v like it meant to be.
No man like this should ever be alone in a photo booth. EVER. I volunteer!
I bet this is what he looks like on Sunday mornings, after he’s made you breakfast in bed. A bowl of muesli with some yogurt, fresh fruit, and French-press coffee, natch.)
Roman Josi is undeniably and unapologetically foxy. And unapologetically Swiss.
On this Let’s just take a pause for a moment to appreciate the masculine beauty of this man.
No, he is not a figment of your imagination or some sexy hallucination.
This is a real life, flesh and blood human being.
Roman Josi, people.
Straight Up Life Ruiner.
