Why I Love Soccer

If you've read a few of my blogs here at Fierce Romance, you know I'm a big soccer fan. My favorite teams are my boys' club soccer teams, followed by the L.A. Galaxy, and the U.S. Men's Team. I like soccer because it's a fast-paced, exciting game, and umm, well, because you can really see the guys! Three years ago when I watched the World Cup on TV, I was glued to the tube not only for the exciting games but for the VERY HOT footballers. So let the game begin!

No gallery of hot soccer players would be complete without Becks - and we have him in L.A. - at least for now.

Since there's a lot of rivalry going on between Becks and his Galaxy teammate, Landon Donovan, I'll let you decide who has the bigger...ego:

Germany by way of Poland, Lukas Podolski looks like he has a pair of balls:

Hey, I'm half Swedish, but Freddie Ljungberg is a full-on Viking raider:

Cristiano Ronaldo is considered by some to be the best soccer player in the world right now. He sure looks good to me:

Like your men rough around the edges? Try Steven Gerrard on for size:

Is Sergio Ramos from Spain playing football or doing a hair commercial? Either way, es muy caliente:

Kaka looks tired. Wanna put him to bed?

I guess for some strange reason American, Carlos Bocanegra doesn't take his shirt off during games, so we'll just have to be satisfied with him in this tight tank:

Ronaldinho has the moves AND the hair:

The entire Italian team could be models, but Fabio Cannavaro is my favorite for obvious reasons. He has the first name, do you think I could persuade him to appear on my next cover? All I can say is "Goooooooooaaallll":

OK, can someone please tell me again why soccer will never be as popular in the U.S. as football, baseball, or basketball?

All I can say Carol is, what wondrous sights to wake up to. Not sure I can fall back asleep now. LOL

Carly Carson said...

To answer your question, it's because men have all the money and they don't watch sports to uh...ogle the players. (Unlike some of us!)

Nicole North said...

Hot pics, Carol!! You've just convinced me to start watching soccer. :)

Sandy said...

I like soccer because it moves fast and for those fast movers. lol

Stacey Joy Netzel said...

Never been a soccer watcher, but you've made a very convincing argument to start. :)

Donna Marie Rogers said...

I've never watched soccer, and I'd be lying if I said I'd start now, but I'll gladly come look at pics like these anytime. *g*

December said...

I love soccer-
And this post is totally drool worthy. yummy!

Joy said...

I would give my left ovary for some "at him" time with David Beckham

Carol Ericson said...

Jordanne, glad I could jump start your day!

Carly, ogle players? Moi?

Nicole, the World Cup is in 2010 - stand by.

Sandy, obviously soccer keeps them in great shape.

Carol Ericson said...

Stacey, they look pretty good with their jerseys on too.

Donna, yes, the research for this post was hell I tell ya!

December, honestly, there were so many great pics out there to choose from - I think the entire Italian soccer team did a calendar - mama mia!

Joy, ah, yes, Becks doesn't lose any of his hotness in person either.

Natasha said...

Carol, I think you've just converted a few new soccer fans :) Yum!

Mia said...

Soccer is fine and it has a better chance of becoming popular here in the US than my current fav Rugby. Hoo yah!

Not that I'd turn any of these guys away.


Lexi said...

I LOVE soccer and the soccer men! Thanks for this, Carol. I need to go get a glass of water, but I don't know whether to drink it or dump it over my head!

Carol Ericson said...

Natasha, believe me I had a lot to choose from.

Mia, I actually have a calendar full of naked rugby players - don't ask.

Lexi, I knew you'd love this. Can't wait for World Cup 2010.

Terry Spear/Terry Lee Wilde said...

wow, I've never been into sports, but you sure changed my mind, Carol. Just needed a different persepective!!! LOL

Carol Ericson said...

Terry, never been into sports? You don't know what you've been missing!
