The sports hero & why I like him
By Cassandra Carr
People have asked me why many of my heroes are athletes. Here are a couple of reasons:
· They're in great shape.
· They're alpha males.
· They have money.
Let's look at those reasons in more detail.
First, athletes are in great shape, as shown in Exhibit A, hockey player Ryan Kesler, and Exhibit B, hockey player Sidney Crosby. Now, I don't know about y'all, but I love a man with a hot bod. What's sexier than watching your man sweat through a hard workout (especially if you're the one giving it to him)?
Exhibit A: Ryan Kesler
Exhibit B: Sidney Crosby
Additionally, athletes are alpha males. Why do we like alpha males? Because they're fiercely loyal, protective, strong, and more. A man like this is much preferred in my book than one who's laissez-faire - we want our men to fight for us and our love! And last, athletes have money. As much as the whole "starving artist" mystique lives on and on in our culture, I'd prefer to be fed filet mignon and take awesome vacations.
So now you know why I love sports heroes. What are some of your reasons?
