Sorry ladies, this week’s sports hottie happens to be a woman. I mean, as women we should be able to appreciate other athletic women who just so happens to be gorgeous. It’s okay to let the little green monster come out just a bit, but here I present to you an established and gorgeous female athlete, surfing sensation Malia Jones.

Malia of Hawaiian, Spanish-Filipino, and German descent is a surfer and a model. She began surfing at a very young age and has actually born here, and when I say here I mean Loma Linda, California.

How cool huh, to all you LSU students who keep up with our blog, her dad went to Loma Linda University, and is now a dentist.

She was a U.S. amateur champ at the age of fifteen, and from winning that tournament her second career was born, modeling. Although Malia vows that surfing is her primary career and first love.

She has been named part of the “50 Most Beautiful People” by People magazine and one of America’s “10 Sexiest Athletes” by Esquire. She seems to be a very busy girl and she also happens to design swimwear for Mambo Graphics Sportswear.

I just thought I’d give a shout out to a successful female athlete that is ridiculously good-looking.

Rugby’s Hidden Gem June 1, 2008

Jonny Wilkinson is one of sport’s greatest hotties, and I’ve never even heard of him.

This hidden gem just so happens to be one of the world’s greatest rugby stars. (Well…now you know why I’ve never heard of him.)

Wilkinson began his rugby career when he was scouted at one of his high school matches. He left school in 1997 to start his career as a Newcastle Falcon.

Jonny is currently playing professional rugby for both the Newcastle Falcons, in the Guinness Premeirship, and the English national team.

At just 18 years old, Jonny made his national team debut against Ireland on April 4, 1998. After this first match, Jonny began starting regularly for the English national team. He made his World Cup debut in 1999.

His career with the Falcons was just as impressive. In 2001 he assisted the team in winning the Tetley’s Bitter Cup.

Jonny really began his rise to fame in 2003 after he kicked the winning goal in overtime to help England win its first World Cup.

Wilkinson’s remained dominant for the past several years. Just last year, he became the highest point-scorer in the history of the Five/Six Nations Championship.

Overall, Jonny has a great reputation for his extreme dedication to training and his incredible work ethic; an example of this commitment is that he spends hours a day practicing his goal-kicks.

Wilkinson’s dedication has obviously paid odd throughout the years because he is currently considered at the top of his game.

He is also at the top of our very own hottie list!

Soccer’s Swedish Super-Hottie May 26, 2008

David Beckham is sooooo hot! Yeah, yeah, yeah…I’ve heard it a gazillion times. What’s worse is that he recently moved to the States, to play for the L.A. Galaxy, and the press coverage and hoopla has grown even bigger.

What I wanna know is why all of the other soccer hotties are lacking in attention. While millions of girls ogle Beckham they rarely discuss the other studs out on the football pitch.

For this reason we have take this week to honor Fredrik Ljungberg as the sports hottie of the week. Like the fore mentioned David Beckham, Ljungberg is too an undie model (he sports Calvin Klein’s) and European soccer phenomenon.

Ljungberg was born on April 16, 1977 in Vittsjö, Sweden. He grew up playing multiple sports, but primarily focused his efforts on soccer. He played for a local club team until he began playing outside mid-fielder or ‘winger’ for the Swedish national team. Later that year he went on to sign with Arsenal, one of the greatest professional teams in Europe, at just 19 years old.

Ljungberg worked his way into a starting position by his second season. He played a large role in Arsenal’s victories in both the Premiership and the Football Association Challenge Cup (i.e. the Super Bowl of European soccer) in 2001-02 season.

Unfortunately Ljungberg has been plagued with nagging injuries for the past few seasons. He even suffered from blood poising in 2005. While he recovered from this ailment, he has been suffering from an ankle injury for quite some time. Some have speculated that this reoccurring physical inability may have contributed to his transfer to West Ham United last season.

While his soccer career has fluctuated from great to mediocre, his physical appearance has been consistent: one thing is for sure, Fredrik Ljungberg is a mega hottie!

His teammates call him “Hollywood,” and I don’t blame them May 20, 2008

Well, the kids of Cole Hamels and his former Playboy model wife are definitely not going to be crying the blues later in life. I mean, having two great looking people like that together should not even be allowed.

Twenty-four year old Cole Hamels plays in the MLB as the starting left-handed pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies. Being left-handed in any sport is unique and to be a starting left-handed pitcher makes you even better.

Cole Hamels was born in San Diego and grew up there his whole life. He has been playing baseball from a very young age and had many scouts interested in him when he was playing in high school at Rancho Bernardo High School. Unfortunately in his junior year he broke his pitching arm and local scouts, such as the San Diego Padres, lost interest in Hamels.

Lucky him that he is that good that he ended up still getting drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the first round draft pick in 2002. He played minor league ball until his major league debut in 2006.

He also married his hottie of a wife Heidi Strobel in 2006 as well, what a year for Cole Hamels.

Cole Hamels has continuously continued to deliver for the Philadelphia Phillies; he recently pitched a shut-out on May 16, 2008 against the Atlanta Braves.

Keep up the great work Cole!

Two Sports and he’s hot, what more could you want? May 13, 2008

Well I surely hope I am not the only one who hasn’t heard of Jeremy Bloom up until this point. He’s ridiculously hot, and he plays two sports! Two!

Jeremy Bloom is currently the Wide Receiver/Return Specialist for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League and he is a competitive Skier. He has actually won two Olympic titles, three World Championships, and in 2005 six straight World Cup races in skiing, that’s a record in the history of skiing!  

However, apparently in 2006 Blooms decided to focus primarily on his football career, leaving skiing to enjoy for leisure. I’m a little saddened by this but, that’s ok. He still did both, not many athletes can pull off being good at two sports, so kudos to Jeremy Bloom for his tremendous achievements.

He has been participating in both football and skiing from a young age. And here’s another random fact, he was born in Colorado, hence the reason for the snow sport, and football, well I guess he just really enjoyed it.

He also happens to be a male model and has modeled for companies such as Abercrombie & Fitch, GQ Magazine, and Cosmo Magazine.

I am in awe that someone can even pull off playing two sports professionally, and let alone be overwhelmingly good looking too.

Keep your eye out for our next sports hottie; he plays a sport that lets you wear jewelry while playing, and has a hot wife!!
