Finally, the rest of the world is recognizing what we’ve known all along: the finest DNA is saved for footballers. And that featuring attractive footy stars on magazine covers is a successful publicity formula.
Today’s gene pool case-in-point? Villareal striker and Italian NT member, Giuseppe Rossi, who’s fronting ESPN The Magazine‘s May 17 issue. After a quick survey of our inner sanctuary, we report mixed findings about his abundance of back-of-the-hand hair. Once upon a time, a few of you even claimed that knuckle forests were your dealbreakers.
Of course, if we spotted ‘Beppe cruising around a piazza, we’d let him buy us a panini. But what about our nearest and dearest gal pals? If you suddenly found yourself jaywalking alongside Rossi’s gorgeous greens, would you:
B) Happily engage in a discussion on where to source the best Orzata in town?
C) Act naturally as you sell him your body at a cut price, while simultaneously offering your shameless WAGabee soul as that day’s one-time-only free gift with purchase?
There are no wrong answers, only different consequences.
