Blatant Objectification: Graham Zusi

June 16, 2014

Romance novels rest on the well-muscled bedrock of hot protagonists.  In light of this, I would like to provide you with some fresh sources of inspiration, whether you are a romance writer, a romance reader or, like me, both--as well as a blatant objectifier of men.

Now, America's entire 2014 World Cup team is indeed something special and worthy of objectification.  But allow me to throw the spotlight on handsome young midfielder Graham Zusi, who not only made his World Cup debut today, but assisted in scoring a late goal against Ghana as a substitute in the second half.  America won the game, 2-1. 

Very suave.  Image from Matt Besler's Instagram.

Um, here's a detail of the above photo for objectification purposes.

Such a great smile.  Image from Twitter.
UPDATE!
Thanks to the US Men's National Team for a great World Cup run.  See you next time!
