Game On Bloghop! – Sports Crush

No big surprise, I am a sports fan and I have talked about my sports crush here, and here. A small mention here and here, and even here.  So, Mr. Aikman has been covered on

But, I guess I could pick another crush in order to support my friend Kyra Lennon on the release of the 2nd edition of Game One and the new covers for the series. As someone who appreciates the romance surrounding the world of sports, I was excited for this Bloghop. First, Bloghop Rules!GameOn Bloghop

The Game On Series is centered around a soccer team in the U.S, and those of you who have already read the books will know the hottie of the series is Radleigh McCoy. Between October 28th and October 31st, I want to hear from you about your sporting crushes!

Does David Beckham do it for you? What about swimming sensations Michael Phelps or Rebecca Adlington? When did you first notice your sporting crush, and what do you like best about them? Have you ever been lucky enough to see them in action? Please keep posts to a maximum of 500 words.

Another one of my sport crushes:

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. 


I love his North Carolina accent and his laid back personality. I love that he loves Jay Z and Elvis Presley, equally. Check him out in Jay Z’s, Show Me What you Got Video.

I never meet Dale, Jr., but my mother did. She went to a banquet where he was honoring her boss along with some other important people.  I was supposed to go, but couldn’t get out of a work trip.  He signed an autograph for me, though. It said, “Hey Syd., Can’t believe you’re not here. Next time. Dale, Jr.” – SWOON!!!!

Now it’s your turn, tell me about your sports crush?

  1. Junior? Really? Hmmm. I used to have a huge sports crush on Akin Ayodele when he played for the Cowboys. Something about his dimples. Pictures never do him justice. Cracks me up that I made him blush, complimenting his dimples…Bradie James & DeMarcus gave him a hard time about it…LOL!

    1. Akin, really. haha. I have a whole list of Cowboy crushes. Darren Woodson, Kavika Pittman, Larry Brown (pretty smile), Brock Marion. and Travis Jervey – he was on the team for two years in the preseason before never made the 53 man roster, but he did sign with Green Bay. He was so cute.

      1. D. Wood is definitely an attractive man. Truthfully, Jason Witten does it for me because his so comfortable in his own skin. He’s the kind of guy I’d love to hang out and have drinks with.

        Keith Brooking? He’s sexy as heck… That intensity combined with sweet, souther gentleman? *shivers*

        Jay Novacek? OMG! Gorgeous!!!

        For an older man? Everson Walls is awesome. I think he’s better looking now than he was back in the day…and the way he loves his wife? THAT’s sexy as heck in my eyes.

        Tony Cassias is very attractive, too. 😉

  2. Oh, I used to swoon over athletes all the time! Going to football games made my muse scream. I used to write all kinds of romance stories around sports in high school!

    1. Starting on a NA Romance series tomorrow (NaNoWriMo) where one of the secondary characters is a nobody in college football with a crush on my MC. Second book, he becomes the best friend to my MC and a star in college football and in the third book, he becomes the MC’s soulmate and he goes through his rookie year in the NFL. Love good sports romances, but you have to get the facts about the sport right or it can be a disaster. I want to write a multicultural Nascar story, but not sure if I know the sport well enough. More research needed.

    1. Hi Kelley, Just last week, I would have bashed the Packers and their QB, and for not other reason then I am a Cowboys fan. Was a Cowboys fan. I am searching for a new team. after 20 years of disappointment, I can’t take it anymore. So, Aaron Rodgers uh.;-)

  3. I’m not much of a sports fan, but I do love me some tasty Aussie Rules Football boys. 🙂 I like the toned bodies they sport (pun intended), without being over-muscled oafs. hehe
