Week # 3 of the Foxy Friday Fan Challenge brings us to a place we never expected to be – except for that time I admitted this during the Cosmo’s 30 Hottest Hockey Players debacle. Damn the internet, it never forgets!
This week’s winner is Cheryl (@c_S_C_D) in Oregon. We feel better knowing she struggled with it too.
Let me preface this by saying: I am a die-hard Bruins fan. But this guy has had my heart since I met him in 2004 (another story for another day), so I will just confess without further ado. Ladies (and gentlemen)…
Foxy Friday: Carey Price.
We love part-time models.
Once upon a time, Carey was a baby goalie playing for the Tri-City Americans in the WHL . He was little more than a dream of stardom and frosted tips crying out for a boy band.
Also, he was a heck of a goalie:
In his final WHL season, Price went 30-13-1, with a save percentage of .917. Winning is foxy. He also appeared in the World Junior Classic. Again, impressive stats.
Even more impressive company:
More shiny things.
The Montreal Canadiens drafted him 5th in the 2005 draft, behind former Foxy Friday Bobby Ryan (#2) and Foxy Everyday Sidney Crosby (#1, natch).
Carey’s had his ups and downs on the ice. The Habs reached the Eastern Conference finals in ’09-’10 (lost 4-1 to the Flyers). Last season they did not make the playoffs. Currently they are atop the Northeast by two points over the Bruins. Whether they go in 2nd or 4th, this year Montreal is going to the dance.
Even when he doesn’t play, Carey’s been known to make a stellar save.
Look how nonchalant. And don’t pretend the French isn’t making you swoon.
Sometimes he even practices as a forward, in case you’re into role-playing.
Don’t lie, it works for you.
Bruins fans, are you faltering yet? How about if Carey knows where to find Tyler Seguin in a dark place full of heavy things to push?
WUYS has made it clear that to be Foxy Friday material, he must love dogs:
Some of us like cowboys and rodeo (including Pants):
Add in some hockey to get Chuck and the rest of the holdouts.
Carey’s going as Raylan Givens for Halloween.
But mostly, I think Carey is foxy because he’s a dork!
No hands on the wheel.
Approximate measurement of foxiness, in Metric system of course.
In conclusion, Carey Price is foxy because he’s Carey Price.
He takes things like this:
And makes them look like this:
One last pic, with the King of Foxy Goaltenders, Henrik Lundqvist.
Wanna know more? Like 22:45 minutes more? It’s cool, you’ll be dead by the 8 minute mark. If you hold out for the bowling segment, you can meet Carey’s fiancée (sorry girls!).
