As much as I love to watch sports, as a girl it can be a bit distracting - there are some real good looking athletes out there. Ya,ya we have all heard about David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, Tom Brady, etc. But what about those guys who are athletic, just as good looking, and fly under the radar? WELL, I am taking it upon myself to re-introduce these Sexy and Underrated athletes to the world. Throughout the next couple of weeks I will take you through my Top 7 Best Looking & Most Underrated Athletes of 2009
CHRISTIAN PONDER - Florida State University
You can tell me all day about how bad or good a team's offensive line is but chances are I am going to be staring at the QB getting pumled in the backfield - Especially when it is someone as good-looking as Florida State University's Christian Ponder.
(look @ those arms & that side profile)
Not only is this guy HOT with and without his padding on; but, despite Florida State's record, there is no doubt this boy can play damn good football. I started watching him last year but anyone who doesn't know who this man is or disagrees with me, watch the end of the FSU v. N. Carolina game below. Ponder rallied the Seminols from 18 pts back to win and threw over 400 yards against the top-rated pass defense in the nation. Did I mention he also had 3 touchdowns?
Now, don't get me wrong. I don't think he is the next Peyton Manning (if you are talking skills as a QB) or Tom Brady (if you are talking sex appeal) but this guy deserves some credit - and not just because he is HOT. He is good quarterback and considering he is a junior with not much support around him, (I'm not even going to get into Bobby Bowden and that whole ordeal right now), I'm impressed with his numbers this year. He has thrown for over 2,453 yards and 13 touchdowns this season thus far and has recently been named a semi-finalist for the Maxwell Award
With four regular season games to go, including the Florida vs. Florida State rivalry game, Ponder still has time to show the nation how talented he truly is. Even though the Seminols will get blown out by the Gators, I am interested to watch Ponder, the sexiest QB in college footballl, take on T-Bow, the most moral and beloved college QB.
