While watching the Minnesota Wild play against the Canadiens recently, the commentator reminded me that the Wild’s Mikko Koivu has a brother Saku who plays for Montreal. Both brothers are captains this year. I already know Mikko is very cute, so I wondered what his brother looks like. Well, here he is. That got me to thinking … how many other brother hotties are there in professional sports that are good looking? You’ll see my top pics after the break.
Okay, now that I’m done feeling like Ryan Seacrest, I’ve attempted to pick the best brothers from football, baseball and soccer as well.
Tiki and Ronde Barber (football)
Tiki Barber, former American football running back for the New York Giants. He is the identical twin brother of Ronde Barber, a cornerback who plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Obviously, these guys are hot and just too adorable for words. Here they are with a little puppy!
They’re so sweet, they even co-authored children’s books together. Here’s some other great pics of them.
In doing my arduous research for the baseball feature of this post, I seriously considered the following:
Jason and Jeremy Giambi (baseball)
I may have to go all the way back to the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s to find a contender with the three Ferrell brothers of baseball.
Finally, I looked and looked, and this is the hottest “brothers” I could find in soccer: Matt Brothers.
Matt has made three appearances on the Massachusetts State College Athletic Conference All-Conference team while at Worcester State College. He should appeal to all our younger readers.
Then I got these tips from others:
Stephen and J.D. Drew, courtesy of Lady Andrea.
Eric and Corey Patterson, as suggested by Chitown Chick.
I guess what we can take away from this review of “hottie” brothers in professional sports is that, with a few limited exceptions, if two brothers have that level of athletic talent, don’t expect them to be good-looking as well. I’m sure, however, that there are stunning examples I have missed. Please, do share.
