Foxy Friday: Colin Wilson

14 Jan

Wow.  It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Foxy Friday and even longer since it featured a Boston University Terrier.  So, folks, for my 1st FF post of 2011, I introduce you to…

Colin Wilson


Even Shea Weber knows that you can't look directly at a guy as hot at Colin. It's like staring into the sun.

Aside from the obvious physical attributes (6’1″, 214 lbs) and hockey pedigree (Dad was an NHLer for 12 season), Colin or “Willy” as he is affectionately known, is a great young hockey player with serious superstar potential, poise, and a smile that can just mesmerize.  Don’t believe me?  Watch this.  (also, serious Gun Show at the 4 min mark)

Making us all fall in love...

Hey. How you doin'?

Now be honest…you sort of love him now, dontcha?   I know I do.  I want to wake up with him on Sunday morning and do crossword puzzles while we eat blueberry pancakes.  I believe that in a few years, Colin has the potential to become a great ambassador for the NHL and the sport of hockey, a la Sidney Crosby.  He’s handsome, well-spoken, and looks pretty at ease in front of the camera. (Pants, think you had some media training at COM?) Not hard to imagine him staring in CCM ads and Winter Classic teaser trailers.

While not putting up insane numbers or 8 bajillion point streaks (yet), he could.  Colin is the kind of guy that you’d want on your team because he is fun to be around, happy, and unpretentious. He’s sort of a geek with his love of video games, history, and Greek mythology and you know how much we at WUYS LOVE “adorkable” guys like this.  I can watch the History Channel with him and not feel bad about myself.  Also, his love of Greek gods is especially apropos considering that he pretty much looks exactly like one!

Willy, the God of Hockey

Now back to the hockey…which believe it or not, is the real reason for this post…

Other reasons why Colin is Foxy…

  • played two years at Boston University, where he helped lead his team to the 2009 National Championship
  • one of three finalist for the Hobey Baker, losing out to teammate (and fellow FF honoree) Matt Gilroy
  • was Team USA Most Outstanding Forward at 2009 World Juniors
  • USA Hockey College Player of the Year (2009)
  • Inside College Hockey Player of the Year (2009)

So, you see?  It’s really not that hard to see why Colin would make our Foxy Friday list.  He’s got it all.  Crazy hockey skills, movie star good looks, and a smile that can pretty much turn any woman into a pile of goo.

Plus looks like he can really bust a move…

Terrier Dance Party!

P.S.  As a BU season ticket holder for years now, I got to watch Wilson play during his two years there and even then you could tell that he was different. From the minute he stepped on the ice, you knew that this kid was destined for the NHL. He was big and every stride was strong, powerful, and pretty much effortless.  Like Teddy Riley and Blackstreet, Colin was on Another Level.

P.P.S. He also kind looks like hotter, American version of Irish singer, Brian McFadden (of whom I am a fan). Don’t you think so, Pants?

    You were right Chuck! He is super dreamy and well worth the wait for this post! So excited about the potential road trip with you and Pants this year for some DC and PGH hockey! This sailor could use the hockey education!

    Did you watch the video? It will make you fall in love with him. Honest.

      “I really love Greek Mythology.” I want to hug him.

    So adorkable but looks frighteningly barely past puberty.

    Cute. Very cute.

    *thinks swiftly of any NHL star over 25 to try and dampen down the rampant Cougar within*

      He is a wee bebby, but too adorable not to share with the 5 people who read this blog. (actually more than that I think since this post got over 100 view today!) SCORE!

    i was a skeptic until i watched the video. too cute… or rather adorkable.

    i thought i would post my feelings instead of quietly creeping like usual so you would in fact realize there are more than 5 of you!

      Thanks for posting! It makes us all warm and fuzzy to know that other people read our blog.

    During the Hobey Baker award ceremony in 2009 they did a whole background story thing on Wilson and it made me love him that much more.

    He’s a definite cutie and I’m always giddy to see him when the Preds come to town. Our little group, of 3 BU alums, gets super excited for the “enemy” but we don’t care–gotta represent BU first and foremost!

      How can you not love him!? He’s adorkable.
