I admit that when it comes to athletics outside of the bedroom Iâ€™m not much of a participant. Sure I walk and cycle every day and occasionally attend a yoga class but thatâ€™s about it for me.
With the recent World Cup, I discovered that watching some sports can work up as much of a sweat as actually participating in them. Hot young, muscular jocks running around a field in shorts and a t-shirt, their sun-kissed skin glistening with perspiration, what more could straight women and gay men ask for? It sure the hell beats American football or hockey where itâ€™s close to impossible to objectifyâ€”er, I mean admireâ€”any of the athletes since their uniforms are more like suits of armor. Rugby is a most welcome alternative.
But as much as I enjoy the spectacle of these sporting goods on the field, I generally donâ€™t have the time to be sitting in front of the television set for two hours on a regular basis. So you can imagine my delight when I discovered what beefy rugby-playing bon-bons were waiting for me online. Mon dieu!
From what I can gather, from 2001 and on The French National Rugby Team has been modeling for the â€œDieux du Stadeâ€ calendar. Did I mention that the team appears in the nude? And the stylish pics are shot in classic black and white. The 2006 calendar goes on sale September 29â€”but of course you can pre-order nowâ€”and there will also be a â€œMaking of the 2006 Calendarâ€ DVD available for sale.
The best way to get a taste of the photos (for 2006 and prior years, too) is to check out the beautiful Oh La La Paris site. Not only does it provide you with a sampling of these athletic and photogenic studs but there are also some other delicious dudes you can look at, too.
Not surprisingly, the awesome You Tube site currently offers up 9 clips (ranging from 29 seconds to 5.05 minutes) featuring the jocks hard at work on their part in the making of the calendar. Simply go to http://www.youtube.com/ and enter â€œles dieux du stadeâ€ into its video search engine.
I wonder if hottie Frederic Michalak and the rest of his hot team mates are looking for a new towel boy in the locker roomâ€¦or for someone to hold their balls between games?
