Remember that time in late January/early February 2012 we went a little crazy and named a bunch of New York Rangers at Foxy Fridays?
Yea, well this guy wasn’t one of them. We’re idiots. Thank goodness, WUYS fan Brenda (@wishinonehand) is on top of it. She is this week’s Foxy Friday Fan Challenge winner! Check out her ode to Dan Girardi and his face below.
Nothin’ but a G Thing
To all 30 NHL GMs who failed to draft Dan Girardi, who’s laughing now?
The New York Rangers signed Girardi as an undrafted free agent on July 1, 2006 and since then, all he’s done is play his damn heart out. From 2007 through 2012, Girardi played an astonishing 408 out of 410 regular season games (plus 42 playoff games, but who’s counting?). Danny’s minutes are hard minutes: he regularly plays over 25 min/game, mostly against opponents’ top lines and during the PK. He blocks shots like a boss and comes back the next shift like it never happened, causing some to wonder: Is Dan Girardi a Mutant?
Danny G made his first All Star team last season, which was very well-deserved. He may only be 6’1″ and 203 pounds and had just 5G / 24A last season, but especially when Marc Staal was out with a concussion (and now with a horrible eye injury – get well soon, Staalsy!), Girardi is the absolute backbone of this team. Did I mention that he’s also an Alternate Captain when Staal is out?
But I’m getting distracted. You came here for foxiness. Where do I start?
Gorgeous big blue eyes that make the crystal clear Caribbean waters weep?
A cleft chin that Cary Grant (Ask your moms, whippersnappers!) would envy?
Lips that are absolutely perfectly… ahem, I don’t think I can even finish that sentence on a family-friendly blog, but… CHECK.
Oh, did I mention that he’s a doting father to the cutest son ever? Commence ovarian meltdown in 3, 2, 1…
I mean, I don’t even want kids and I turn into a complete puddle over this.
On a team stacked with an embarrassment of foxy riches, Girardi is a standout.
Note from Pants & Chuck: asdfghjkl!
Seriously, can we please insist on full face cages? It would be irresponsible to destroy all this beauty.
Ssshhhh… Don’t talk. Don’t ruin the moment.
Do you need a glass of water? We’ll wait.
Girardi’s hotness will stop for no woman. Don’t believe me?
What’s black & white and covered in grease paint? Girardi’s foxiness, of course.
Putting the “classic” in Winter Classic.
Put him in your Aunt Joan’s ugly holiday sweater with a pair of cheesy shades – he’s still hot like fire. Bonus if you’ve got SKIN TIGHT RED JEANS!
Merry Christmas, indeed.
Does he even sweat during workouts? If he’s not, I am.
Dan’s foxiness extends to his sense of humor and being OCD about neatness. All this hotness and he puts away his clothes, too?
How can you not swoon over a boy who loves Swedish Fish and Frosted Flakes?
I’ll wait while you watch that pelvic thrust a few hundred more times…
Dan Girardi, this week’s Foxy Friday. #5 for the New York Rangers, but #1 in your heart.
Pants & Chuck Note: Halloween? Get us a phone booth, a cape and DG. Stat.
