Heath Pearce: Transfer Totty & Sex Symbol Status?
The internet was rife with news of Heath Pearce to NYRB, Juan Agudelo to Chivas transfer talk, yet there was no mention of this hottie’s horse riding tendencies.
There should’ve been, because this vintage poster circa his FC Dallas days definitely provides us with an interesting peek into the centre/left back’s psyche. Does he like tall and lanky blonds to play farm hand(s) to his cowboy? Does he prefer ladies who wear Frye boots versus Hunter wellies?
While Pearce’s professional career has been tenuous at times, his Abercrombie & Fitch image and likeness has not. So is he and his Owen Hargreaves-ish good looks just what New York really needs? Can Heath’s obvious visual appeal* eventually help cement him as Major League Soccer’s first born and bred** bonafide sex symbol***?
Too many questions to tackle all at once, dear readers. Seeing that it’s Friday and that ain’t never gonna happen, we’ll rely on our beloved “believing is seeing” motto.
We need to see more of Heath and Juan’s abs before we believe this trade was a good one.
