Sometimes being a Foxy Friday isn’t about being the #1 star or scoring all the goals. Sometimes it is about being funny and charming and adorable.
And totally crush-worthy.
This week’s honoree has got it in spades.
So let’s look at the reasons why Barty gets this week’s honor (besides his obvious awesomeness)
In the pantheon of NHL defensemen, Bartkowski does get instant name recognition (not yet at least). The 25 year old defenseman is in his 1st full NHL season and along with Torey Krug and Dougie Hamilton, is leading the wave of up and coming Bruins’ blueliners.
I’m Polish. He has a Polish last name. Now, I don’t know if he is Polish like I’m Polish, but I bet my Babcia wouldn’t mind if I brought him home for dinner. I hope he likes pierogi and kielbasa.
He is a Pittsburgh native (Mt. Lebanon, to be specific). While the Pens aren’t my team, I do like their city. Especially the maple bacon donuts from Peace, Love, and Little Donuts. Who am I kidding? I LOVE these mini pieces of heaven.
We could eat them together as we ride the city’s incline trains.
His budding bromace with Torey Krug. Watching this love story develop is really quite beautiful. It’s like a really good Hallmark movie…except with more hockey and less dying or drama.
To see more of their love, check out episode 3 of “Behind the B”. There is a car-sing long. To Rush, no less. #epic #nerdtastic
Fashion. It don’t mean a thing to him. He’s a simple man.
We appreciated a man who takes the time to learn our language.
Who got the FLOW? Matt got the flow. And it’s amazing.
Matt Bartkowski, ladies and gentleman. I’m crushing. Hard. If this was high school, I would now be doodling Matt + Chuck 4-eva on my trapper keeper and finding out ways to get him to ask me to prom.Tags: Boston Bruins, bromance, Donuts, Foxy Friday, Hockey Crush, Matt Bartkowski, Pittsburgh, torey krug
