Swoon: Jimmy Garoppolo of New England Patriots

Sharp Dressed ManFriends know that I don’t care for football and in the I fall arrange my grocery shopping each Sunday to coincide when the New England Patriots play so I can avoid the normal weekend crowds.

However, living in Boston, it is hard for even someone like me to completely avoid the endless discussions about Tom Brady’s recent fine and suspension.  I could not care less about the decision, but it has thrust the Patriot’s back up QB, Jim Garoppolo into the spotlight. I have to admit I had no idea who this guy was but I am developing a deep and abiding crush on this hunk.  Does Mr. Kraft have a casting couch for signing quarterbacks? Is it possible the New England Patriots have two of the best looking men in the NFL?  I think I’m in love.

Things that make BosGuy go hmm…

SportsIt has been a while since I’ve posted a hmm… post but I think you’ll agree that this is deserving.  Check out this clip of these two Rugby players below.  The guy on the left is Willie Mason and the player who walks up to him is Korbin Sims.

Maybe this is how Rugby players say hello.

Boston Marathon

Boston MarathonToday is Patriot’s Day, a holiday commemorating the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, but ever since 1897, Patriot’s Day has also been race day for the Boston Marathon. This year’s marathon marks the 119th anniversary of the Boston Marathon, making it the world’s oldest annual marathon.  It is also one of my favorite days to be in Boston. Even though the weather this year is cool and rainy, I’ll be celebrating by watching the Red Sox at Fenway and cheering on the marathon runners as they come into Back Bay.

My congratulations to all the runners and sincere thanks to the Boston Athletic Association, city of Boston, the volunteers and first responders who help to make this world class event such a special day to me and everyone else in the city.
