#ManCandyMonday NY Jet Ryan Fitzpatrick

Sorry I’ve been away, but I’ve been traveling and work has been insane! Not to mention that I am on deadline to finish the next one of the Take a Chance stories!

Even though the Jets lost yesterday, I thought it was time to share quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. Every time I see him, I can picture him on the cover of a Viking historical! What do you think?

#ManCandyMonday NFL Player Danny Amendola

Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend. We had more snow . . . Ugh.

Time to warm you up with some Man Candy! Today’s pick is in honor of STRONGER THAN SIN from the Dangerous Passions Box Set.

Why Danny? Well, in STRONGER THAN SIN the hero, Jesse Bradford, is a football player and Danny is a wide receiver for the New England Patriots. Danny was an undrafted free agent when the Dallas Cowboys picked him up. He then went to the Philadelphia Eagles before being signed by the Patriots.

Gotta love that smile, that face and those muscles! Sigh. I hope I took a little bit of the chill away from you with today’s Man Candy.

#ManCandyMonday Cleveland Browns’ Jordan Cameron

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year! I’m back from some much needed time off and feeling rejuvenated. It was awesome to spend time with family and friends. Hubby and I did a road trip down to Florida and had a nice time. I’ll share some photos of that soon.

Today is . . . Man Candy Monday! Yeah! I don’t know about you, but I spent part of yesterday watching the Wild Card playoffs. Today’s hunk isn’t on any of the teams that played, but he caught my eye during the season. Jordan Cameron is a Pro-Bowl tight end for the Cleveland Browns. He played football at USC and is 6’5″ and 250 pounds of awesome!

Thanks to Jordan’s Instagram for this lovely photo. Take a moment to like him there for more photos and info. If you can’t see the photo below, you can click here.

Sweet action shot from the game.

#ManCandyMonday Tom Brady from the New England Patriots

Sorry I missed you on Friday, but I’ve been having a month full of computer issues. Sigh. Luckily, I’m close to being back to 100%.

I have to confess that I find myself becoming a Patriots fan mostly because of Tom Brady. He’s handsome and more than that, he seems like a genuinely good guy with a solid work ethic. So today’s Man Candy choice is none other than future Hall of Famer Tom Brady!

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Looking forward to chatting with you this week.

#ManCandyMonday Howie Long

Even now, Howie Long is still sexy. Love that militarily neat hair and sharp jaw. keen blue eyes and big body. Of course, it helps that he’s a fellow Villanova alumni and Hall of Famer.

Hope you enjoy today’s Man Candy. Also, a shout out to all my buddies in Buffalo. Thinking of you and hoping you get through this horrible weather safely.

#ManCandyMonday, The Pen is Mightier than the Storm and The End of the World!

So much to do today and so little time so let’s start with the Man Candy! Today’s choice is Justin Tuck, defensive end for the New Jersey Giants (sorry NY. They play in JERSEY!!).

Justin is a fabulous ball player and also involved in a number of charities. This picture has him in serious mode, but he’s got a great smile. You may recognize him from the Subway television commercials. I love watching him chase after the quarterbacks and it’s no wonder he’s been selected to the Pro-Bowl for his feats on the field!

#ManCandyMonday LA Rams’ Danny Amendola

Can you tell it’s football season in my house? LOL! Of course, I think you knew I loved football when I made Jesse Bradford from STRONGER THAN SIN a football player.

Today’s Man Candy Monday is LA RAMS wide receiver Danny Amendola. Danny caught my eye in this week’s game and I had to share him with you today! Danny was originally signed by the Cowboys and then spent some time with the Eagles. He’s now playing with the Rams and have a good season. Entering Week 5, Amendola was second in the NFL for receptions, amazing considering he suffered a freak collarbone injury which might have killed him.

At 5’10”, 185 pounds, Danny is a lean, mean catching machine. I could just picture him playing Jesse Bradford in a movie (although Jesse was a few inches taller).

Hope you enjoy today’s Man Candy Monday.
