The Sizzle Query: Ginger-Minger or Ginger-Ninja?
Reading’s Dave Kitson, Man U’s Wes Brown, Chelsea’s Steve Sidwell and the man who put the ‘G’ in Ginger, Paul Scholes. These are just a few footie boys that have been blessed/cursed with locks of flaming fire with a side of tangerine.
For some reason, the legacy of red hair is looked upon in the UK as a terrible, terrible follicular crime and ginger-haired blokes are treated/mocked accordingly.
Personally, we couldn’t care less, and think the lighter, strawberry blonde look can be rather fetching, even if we can’t actually name anyone just now who has that look and falls into the sizzle category. But let’s not get caught up on details.
Our biggest issue with the G-look is the mayonnaise legs that tend to accompany. But otherwise, we’re good…ish. We tend to discriminate more with body types, ie those who only have four abs of steel will be placed on a lower scale than those who can provide an eight-pack, and so on.
If Dave Kitson had brown hair, would you find him a hottie? Is he a near-hottie now? We think Wes B has quite decent sizzle potential, with nary a pasty leg to be found. Liverpool’s John Arne Riise loves to take his shirt off on a regular basis and has some serious stamina on the pitch – that counts for something, surely? Or… Not.
Please do tell, Kickettes – share your gingerific opinions on the matter. Off limits, in small doses or can’t get enough?
