Special to Page 2
In the current issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, Detroit Lions quarterback Joey Harrington appears in a "Hottest Hunks in the U.S." feature and confesses that "touching a woman's face and putting my face against hers" excites him. Harrington also reveals that "Soft cheeks are so appealing."
After an exhaustive investigation -- read: we made it up -- Page 2 has learned that Harrington isn't the only athlete Cosmo talked to. What did some other sports luminaries have to say about what they find attractive in women? Read on:
"When a special lady saddles up to your bumper, there's no other feeling like it. And if she's wearing a police uniform ... damn."
"Truthfully? I'm not picky."
"Loyalty means a lot to me. I want a woman who's faithful. Someone who won't flirt with your buddies."
"I think the Cars said it best: There's nothing like your best friend's girl."
-- Chuck Finley
"A nibble on the earlobe drives me wild."
"Kicking back on the couch and watching a good movie, like say 'American Beauty.' "
"Handwritten notes are pretty romantic, but what really puts me in the mood is cuddling up on the couch, sharing some popcorn and popping in a copy of 'Love Stinks.' That's what I'm talking about!"
"Girls who dig props. I'll leave the rest to your imagination."
"When a woman shows her emotional side, that's a big turn-on. Especially if she's crying."
-- Deion Sanders
"Humans are best, but there's something to be said for Vulcans and Romulans as well. And those green women in the Gamma Quadrant? Watch out."
"Straight A's and a high SAT score. Brains are sexy, man."
"Great legs and a better forehand."
"She's gotta enjoy sailing, the ocean, moonlit nights on the deck. And if she wants to call me 'Captain,' so much the better."
-- Tiger Woods
"My friend, there is nothing so sexy as a woman who is angry. Perhaps she is even throwing things."
"Having her touch my face and put her face against it excites me. Taut, reconstructed cheeks are so appealing. Don't you think?"
"I like quiet types."
