Would You: Chris Pontius, D.C. United

imageKickettes, we’ve made a discovery: Chris Pontius, a striker for DC United.

He’s a rookie, brand spanking new to the MLS and he scored his first goal in United’s season opener against the Galaxy last weekend. Sadly, our information on Mr. P is limited. What we know so far: 21-years-old.  6’0” tall. Born and raised in California. Likes giving foot massages and making chocolate chip pancakes.

Yeah, we still haven’t hired that fact checker yet.

Anyhoo, we recommend that you take a minute before starting your Friday celebrations to check out Chris’s endearing newbie TV interview.

We likey. Do you?

Side note: Can someone please ID the hottie at the opening of the video with the water glass?

UPDATE: We got this news via email in on CP: back in high school (Chris went to an all boys Catholic school in Cali), Mr. Pontius was apparently quite the stud muffin.  He also had the nickname “Pawni”.  More as we get it…

thx A!

    Yes. Saw him around campus at uni, but I think he had a girlfriend back then (…and i was a freshman) so there was no way that was happening. He's awesome to watch, wish Galaxy had snagged him instead of DC.

  2. Pavi (Mrs Metzelder) says:

    I think he's a cutie, so I'd say I would. I really need to do some research on the DC United team because I would never know if I met one of them while I was out and about!

  3. Cheryl says:

    no!!!!!!!!! he looks like a bit like my cousin… so errr yuck….. no

    I Would ! And I Likeyy :)

  6. GoalKeeperLover says:

    Oh dear god… I go to school with this guy… he’s a hottie but such an ass on the pitch. Maybe mls humble him a little???

  7. Rebecca says:

    Maybe… or, no.

  8. alessandra says:

    he’s only 21? i thought he was a LOT older. lol. but whatever his age is, i’ll pass. ew.

  9. Posh says:

    Im gonna have to pass, so NO

  10. Mrs.De Rossi says:

    There is some good talent in US and I am not talking about the football!! He is soo cute I swooned when he smiled

  11. TammyV says:

    Having seen him live and in person, scoring said first goal of his career and being a HUGE DC United fan. I totally would, although, he is almost embronic.

  13. DC says:

    totally would. and could ;]

  14. reggie_br says:

    surely i would!!! a hundred per cent yes!!!!

  15. Dreamgirl says:

    Nice to see a US baller for a change. Seems a nice guy but I don’t feel anything stirring.

  16. Randall says:

    You know who’s hot? Chris’ girlfriend. Yowza! Lucky guy.

  17. Sarah says:

    Aw yay, DC boys! I would. But yeah, agree with some of the earlier posts, McTavish is hotter.

  18. FootballerChick43 - says:

    Yes. Yes I would. He's even within a semi-acceptable age-range for me!!!!

  19. BleedsBlack&Red; says:

    Pontius is adorable, agreed (but if he and McTavish were both drowning in one of the infamous RFK pitch-puddles, I have to admit I’d save McTavish first).

  20. Beks says:

    Reminds me of Jim Brennan from Toronto FC, kind of. :]

  21. Raina says:

    Yummy yummy!  Good find Kickette!

  22. Stacey says:

    He went to my uni (UC Santa Barbara) and has a girlfriend, sorry guys!

  23. OhBoyOhBoy says:

    Does anyone know details about D.C. United’s Ladies Night on May 9th? I’m def gonna go—i got an email saying that all the hot players are going to be there and you can win a jersey off their back.

  24. LaserCat says:

    Ooh, I would indeed! Not only have I met 99% of DC United (and can confirm that, yes, there are hotties on there…see Mike Zaher!), I also know they are effing gorgeous. So welcome to town, Mr. Pontius! I think it’s time this gal got herself a United season ticket.

  25. lemonstarbursts says:

    The hottie w/ the water glass is Devon McTavish :) DCU's home opener is tomorrow. Can't wait!

  26. The Fourth Official says:

    Too young for me, but I'd totally have them over for Easter brunch and we could make chocolate chip pancakes together. Love the Burberry tie.

  27. LizB (Mrs. Vucinic) says:

    Hmmmm I don't think I'd say no, but at the same time I probably wouldn't go out of my way for him. I really ought to know more about these US ballers… I live only a few hours from DC and know nothing about them.

  28. JB252 says:

    Big fan of Pontius. Thanks for using the word 'spanking' in your post… now i'll have all kinds of naughty thoughts next i see him on the field… ps. McTavish is even more delicious! ;)

  29. nicki says:

    hmmm what do I think of a guy with a cute smile who is and way too young for me? Sounds just like my type. I am going with a "yes" on this one.

  30. Moonie says:

    Probably not, but ask me again after half a bottle of Baileys and I might not be as fussy!

  31. striker says:

    mmmmmMMMMMmmmmmmm chocolate pancakes!

  32. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    No… I wouldn't.

  33. FirstTeamCoach says:

    Devon McTavish. I love his name although he has mixed up the countries a little lol

  34. Filthygorgeous says:

    I had to get Chris Pontius of 'Jackass' fame out of my head before I could consider the merits of this Chris Pontius. He looks cute, but verging on Mary Kay Le Tourneau age difference here!! lol

  35. Emily (Giggsy's says:

    Tall, can cook and rocks a Burberry tie without looking femme. Yes, I like! A teensy bit too young for me, but I'm willing to overlook the age difference. No idea if he's a decent footballer, though. Too bad he doesn't play in the Premiership 'cause I'd enjoy looking at him regularly!

  36. Venice says:

    Cute! Love the cheekbones. And I like American boys… But he lacks something… I doubt I would.

  37. carly says:

    He's alright. I'm watching the video and I feel like I'm watching a different sport altogether. lol

  38. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    This guy is HOT! Good age and height for me too, where can I buy one?

  39. Johnna says:

    Love seeing the US guys, Kickette!

  40. Erin says:

    Cute enough. Not doing anything special for me, but…..ok, twist my arm. ; )

  41. Adri says:

    Having met Chris, I can safely say: OH YES I WOULD. He’s not only much more gorgeous in person, he’s also incredibly sweet.

  42. mrscudicini says:

    cute…but…hmmm…no

  43. autumnmaple101 says:

    Oh yummy yes!

  44. aristeia says:

    Oh he’s a NUGGET! And what a great goal! Rodney’s pretty cute too. Maybe a little too young for me. That’s quite an age stretch, but I can still look. ; )

  45. carly says:

  47. sweet_dreamz says:

    AWWWWW he’s cute, but I need a second judgement. Perhaps I should start going to DCU games after all…

  48. lose that girl says:

    Chocolate chip pancakes… I’m there! He’s a cutie.
