So I was going to give this post the “Hump Day Hotties” tag, but I thought I might get some flack over it. So instead, I’m just going to use this post to introduce you to Joe Flacco, quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens. Joe has caused a hysteria in Baltimore. See, we folks from Charm City don’t know what a real quarterback actually is. That is until Mr. Flacco arrived in town.
For years we have tried to find that “Franchise Quarterback,” but he never seemed to develop. While I was partial to Kyle Boller (solely on looks, btw), others were calling for his head from the moment we drafted him. Hell, we went a month during our Super Bowl season without scoring an offensive TD! And we won the Super Bowl with Trent Dilfer under center! Even Disney acknowledges that Trent Dilfer sucks! Can you say “Defense,” much?
So needless to say we’re all pretty stoked that Flacco has taken the reigns of our offense. I personally don’t think he’s bad to look at, either. I think his Bert-esque eyebrows are what throw people off, but if he would just tweeze them up a little bit, he’d be a bonafide hottie. I think he’s adorable, despite the brow problem. I’m sucker for a guy with dimples!
Check out some adorable pictures of #5 after the jump!
So after a great rookie season, and a so-far spectacular start to the 2009 season, Flacco is proving to be the real deal. The Land of Pleasant Living may finally be pleasant again! Go Ravens! ;-)
