Hump Day Hottie: Aaron Rowand

It’s finally time. This one’s been a long way in the offing- and, in my opinion, criminally overdue. Why hasn’t Aaron “Bacon Pants” Rowand been featured as a Hump Day Hottie before now? We’ve had him jumping out of a cupcake, but we haven’t given him the full HDH treatment. I can only say that I was saving him for a special occasion- and the last HDH before football season kicks off seems like the perfect time (not to mention that TODAY IS HIS 30th BIRTHDAY). I have only myself to blame for keeping his hottness away from y’all for so long. I hope this makes up for it.

Lots more bacon-y goodness after the jump…

As happy as a little kid on the sidelines of a Bears game

I adore this picture- and I’m not sure why.

Hey now, he’s an All-Star! (and very serious about it)

So! Cute! It! Hurts!

The forearms are amazing.

Sad panda

Yes- he wears sweatbands that say “BEER PONG CHAMP” during BP.
He’s wearing them in the All-Star picture above, too.

Another of my favorites- he’s so focused.

My, what a broad chest you have!

Bacon doing what he does best- going full-tilt

There are those forearms again…

He looks like a lost little kid here

  1. I love the composition of that photo of Bacon hanging over the Petco Park outfield wall. I don’t know why, but I just love it.

    Oh, Bacon. You’re so delicious.

  2. Thank you thank you thank you!!! This turned out to be a great day afterall! I wanna see a shirtless pic of him. It’s a crying shame there aren’t any out there to show off all that muscle. But damn, those forearms will do I suppose. I think he should cut his hair like he had it as a White Sox. He looks so much hotter with the short hair!

  3. Thank you for the shout out to my favorite Phil. Even my boyfriend understands that when he comes up to bat, there is no talking, just staring.

  4. Hey, it’s also Aaron Rowand’s 30th Birthday today, so it’s an extra special hottie hump day! :-) Happy, Happy Birthday Aaron!

  5. I have a new goal in life and that goal is to now play beer pong with Aaron Rowand. I can see him knocking the entire table over while diving to catch an opposing teams bounce. Full throttle 24/7.

  6. Yum. Fantasticness. And Happy Birthday Aaron Baconpants. (ok, technically it’s over since it’s after midnight but the thought is still there.)

    I’m echoing the wanting of the Beer Pong Champ wristbands…and i’m doing it for Jole Mamels too, cuz I’m sure she’ll come in here wanting too.

  7. I have been waiting for this so, so patiently… and it’s finally here… and it’s wonderful. I am SO GLEEEEFUL! :-D

    Thank you so kindly. Ohhh Baconpants. ::melts::

  8. Lionel Mcclure, you just put that vision in my head of him diving for the ping pong ball! i’m crackin up! hahaha…i’d love to play beer pong with him, it’d be so competitive, and i already get competitive while playing pong. me and you should be on a team against rowand and whoever…even just him himself would be fun lol.

    i feel bad for him striking out in all his at-bat’s, on his birthday no less. but atleast the Phil’s came out on top! i was at this game! it was great! i love talkin ish with Met’s fans!

  9. Lindsey, I was there last night too. Poor Aaron, I was hoping he’d at least do SOMETHING on his birthday. Oh well. You should have heard the Mets fans around us after the interference call. Just sayin’.

  10. Yea the Met’s fans around us were yellin lot’s of stuff. I was actually up there with a couple Met’s fans…that was a fun car ride home! For me anyways…

  11. Hi Texas Gal – Rowand has a tribal armband tattoo? Haven’t seen any pics of that. I thought he only had a tattoo just above one of his ankles?


    *looks at pictures*

    Oh, I think I love him more. Gosh, what IS it about guys with tattoos?

  13. Wow, what a way to start a weekend seeing Aaron Rowand as both a member of the Sox and Phillies’. Since I have been cut off from the internet it is great to see the amazing hotness of Aaron “bacon pants” Rowand.
    Oh happy belated birthday Ro!

  14. Haha, aw Aaron! I totally see him as that older brother/bar buddy. And I totally made an AWESOME “Happy Birthday Aaron” sign for Wednesday’s game, but he didn’t get to see it:( But I still held it up–and yes, it did say “AKA Bacon Pants” at the bottom.

  15. I saw Aaron without his shirt on once. Reporters were interviewing Cole Hamels the night he pitched against Milwakee in May and aaron was in the background. I saw his bear back.

  16. He is definetly muscular. He must work out at the gym for hours. I forgot to mention, he turned to the side briefly and I got a glimpse of his massive arms. :-)

  17. I am a huge Phillies fan but first and foremost I am an Aaron Rowand fan. These are the best photos of him I have ever come across, and believe me, I have searched high and low. He is by far the hottest friggin player in MLB right now. I would love to do many naughty things with what is in his “bacon pants.” I LOVE YOU AND YOUR DREAMY THIGHS, AARON!!! Thanks for the pics.

  20. Aaron is a great all around player, and he makes me feel like such a big loser. All the women adore him and for obvious reasons!

  21. How have I never seen this website before?! Thanks for the lovely pics of my ultimate hottie!

    p.s. I, too, am in the dark as to what “bacon pants” is… please enlgihten.

  22. so fucking gay

    the guy looks like he’s taking a shit at every at bat, and most of the time, that’s exactly the result.

    Roid forearms and NO shoulders.
    And he throws like a girl.

    Fuck him.

    Signed, Giants fans everywhere
