After an exhausting Valentine’s Day full of endless pursuits by my many male suitors I finally arrived home at my apartment Thursday evening and crashed on the couch. Who am I kidding? My day was much closer to THIS. I was exhausted from a day of weights, classes and practice. As I flipped on the television and started watching the day’s soccer highlights a brilliant thought flashed through my head. What if all these good-looking, extremely talented and sometimes foreign soccer players were my Valentine’s?
And so I bring you: Kristin’s Top Five Footballing Valentine’s (In my dreams).
5. Chris Pontius – This 25-year-old midfield cutie (above) currently plays his club soccer for MLS side DC United but spends most of his free time running through my mind!
4. Aaron Ramsey – Maybe it’s just the Arsenal fan in me coming out, but man does look good in his jersey. Although he’s struggled to find a consistent spot in Arsenal’s first team this season, he’s been able to hold down a top spot in my heart. Congrats, Aaron.
3. Carlos Bocanegra – Although this US Men’s National Team captain is a little bit older, he still deserves to be in the top 5. Who doesn’t want a mature, sophisticated (NAKED) gentleman anyway, right ladies? He’s currently playing his club soccer in Spain, so I send him mi amor.
See the final two men of my dreams after the jump.
