Foxy Friday: Marc Andre Fleury

18 Feb

Words used to describe this week’s Foxy Friday honoree…

Humorous.  Talented.  Effervescent.  Cereal Magnate.

Marc Andre Fleury

I am zee best, no?

 

Yes, Marc-Andre.  You are zee best.

While you may not be the best goalie (statistically) in the NHL and your team is sinking faster than the Titanic,  you are definitely zee best when it come to having fun!

And hockey should be fun, yes?

But I need to know a few things –

How do you always managed to act all relaxed and joking yet when it comes game-time, you are focused like Yoda when he lifted Luke’s X-Wing out of the Dagobah swamp?

How do you make crazy athletic and seemingly impossible saves in spite of the fact that you are anorexic? (6’2″, 180 lbs.  Really?  Please go eat a sandwich. I beg you.)

Streeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetch

 

Here are some other reasons why we think you are so FOXY:

  • Your nickname is Flower.  And you’re totally okay with that.
  • You look way too good in a backwards baseball hat.

    You can leave your hat on.

  • You are 27-14 this season, with 2.29 GAA, SV% of .920. Oh and you have 1 assist and 8 penalty minutes. (read: ain’t afraid to get dirty)
  • You would most like to meet Will Ferrell.  So would we.  Can we watch “Anchorman” together?  Please?

    Good Evening Pittsburgh. I'm Ron Burgundy??

  • You have some sweet dance moves.
  • You have your own CEREAL!

Breakfast of Stanley Cup Champions

  • You aren’t definitely not afraid to make fun of yourself.  You’re insanely adorakable.  And we love that so much that our hearts might burst.

  • You makes saves like this.

 

So, Marc-Andre, welcome to this elite group. Oh and just an FYI…being a Foxy Friday honoree has sort of turned out to be somewhat of a good luck charm for some players.  So if you start getting shutouts every night, you know who to thank.

You’re most welcome. 🙂

Flower’s Greatest Hits. Warning – after watching this, you will fall in love with him.  I did.

    It’s the teeth and foul language that does it for me. I was watching 24/7 and I was like well heeelllllooooo Mr Fleury!

    Yum. Good call. And on the Market again I hear. Brent Johnston’s pretty HAWT too!!

      Didn’t he swear on live television after they won the Cup?

        I think he hinted at it in his celebration interview lol. But the dirt that came outta that mouth at the practice on Heinz Field – ohemGeno!

        Good lord. Makes my brain go off msg in the BEST way!

    My favorite 24/7 moment – when Fleury is wearing that awful holiday sweater because of some bet he lost, and Johnson shows up wearing… I can’t even describe it, and he said it was because he was supporting his fellow goaltender. That’s some love right there.

    About time MAF got some love! He’s seriously adorable. Great with kids too. This I noticed after the NHL video of him at the Boys and Girls Club (this one: http://video.penguins.nhl.com/videocenter/console?catid=166&id=98430) That sound? Me melting into a puddle.

    • Chuck February 18, 2011 at 4:31 pm #

      And the love comes from a Bruins fan, of all people. Go figure.

      But I love me the MAF. He makes me smile. 🙂

        Haha, he’s too cute to hate. I bet you even Varly is jealous. 🙂 His super-straight smile makes me smile too. And his dance moves. And his fashion sense. I would go on, but I want to leave room for everyone else to love him too. 😉

    The only other Penguin I like. He also can ‘spin like a ballerina’ … what a mighty fine man. Execellent choice and thanks for stepping in for me while I was rocking Ovi in person! XXOO HE WAS AWESOME! 🙂
