Our buddy D.C. Justice is dialed in the “inside the beltway” sports, and all those who report on them. He raises a good point about the Washington Post’s Mike Wise crossing the line with his man-crush on Jason Taylor. It’s cool for our girlfriends to have a fantasy about someone from Dancing with the Stars, afterall it’s a show for the ladies. But Mr. Wise’s bro-love is aggressive.
I am all for people having a man-crush on their favorite athletes. This article by Mike goes to far, I felt uncomfortable reading about his love of Jason Taylor. He says
“Goodbye, Derek Jeter. Peace out, Tom Brady. I don’t want to be you anymore. I have a new man-crush. Someone taller, faster, more handsome and unbelievably polished replaced you, someone who makes the foxtrot more in vogue than the sprinkler. ” ( ok I will let this slide and keep reading)
“But the more the square-shouldered gentleman infused humor with humility — the more he kept flashing the telegenic smile ” ( a little questionable)
“Taylor looked like Xerxes, the clean-shaven, baritone-voiced Persian king in the movie “300.” Indeed, there was something about Jason Taylor that smacked of royalty. ” ( This is just too far)
