AOL.com – It’s no secret that New England Patriots head coach/Sith Lord Bill Belichick is pretty picky about who plays on his team. …
However, there is one secret to staying on the Patriots that isn’t publicized quite as much: if you want to play for this team, you need to be really, really, really, ridiculously good-looking. …
[A]ll we’re saying is that the field within Gillette Stadium seems to be a popular hangout for extremely handsome men. …
If you’re seeking a stud in a football uniform look no further than Foxboro, Massachusetts — that is, unless you’re not into guys who wear jewelry.
Well, I’m glad someone else is finally saying it besides me.
As the first openly Patriotsensual sportswriter, it hasn’t been lost on me that the Pats have essentially cornered the market on super-attractive great athletes. And I’ve been saying for quite some time now that it’s part of the organizational philosophy in Foxboro. The way they value guys who are smart, dedicated to football and who were leaders on their college team, they understand the importance of good looks.
To me, it’s an alpha male thing. Game recognizing game and all that. It’s much easier to be a winner on the field when you’re a winner on campus, in the nightclubs, in the photographer’s studio, in the fashion magazines, in the bedroom and just in life in general. The men running the Patriots attract the best-looking women so they can relate to players who do likewise. It’s a key part of their success.
Last year I was watching a game with the Irish Rose and a group of our couples friends when the camera cut to the Patriots sideline and Tom Brady, Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Mathew Slater. (Don’t get me started on Jimmy Garoppolo.) To which someone said, “That is the Mount Rushmore of handsome right there.” Now, I’ll be honest and admit that someone was me. And I’ve struggled with my own orientation on this topic. For a while, I wasn’t sure if my attraction to certain Pats players means I’m secure in my own masculinity or is a cry for help. But this article confirms it. It’s not anything to feel weird about. It’s simply the truth.
Then again, maybe I am just really attracted to championship rings.
