This is a tough one. Although I love Smytty's attitude, his hair repels me. I gotta go with Horc.

Nemesi? Nemesisisisisisis?

Loxy! This should have been the final in my book.

Damn!

Have to go with Smytty all the way on this one. He embodies everything I love about hockey. I have a picture of him on the wall in my recroom. I stay up even later on Saturday nights for his After Hours interviews.

Yep, he's my man crush.

Mullets beat rock, paper and scissors. Oh and Horcoffs!!

marchantfan said...

scarlett: I dare say scissors trump mullet.

I wouldn't kick either out of bed, but I'll go with Horcoff, because if you have a mirror, he's two different men.

Dominique said...

Although the mullet may hold magical powers, a la Sampson, Horc's overager, if somewhat vacant puppy dog eyes win my vote.

allan said...

Horcoff. Two-face beats rat face in my books.

Jordi said...

I heart Horcoff's voice. Lots. I vote for him. Mullet man just isn't my style. I'd give a lot of money to be that wooden horse he's stroking.

Its a tough call...Ryan does have the sexy mullet...but horcoff...those eyes! they are two different colors!! hands down win just for that.

Steve said...

Because I'm a pedantic shithead: wouldn't Smyth actually be 210 in dog years? Or was that, to quote the Crash Test Dummies, "some very subtle joke"?

And this *is* close. But Smyth.

hockeygirl said...

Ladies, this is getting tough. I had to make a pros and cons list for them and it was so close... Goofy good looks aside for both, I am going to have to go with the youthful Shawnie due to the fact we share the same home province.

There is only one excuse for hockey hair and that is, in fact, hockey. And Smytty's got that one down. I vote for the man who let the old lady run her fingers through his hair. How can you not? If I could clone myself, I'd vote twice.

I will say this one was the hardest one yet, and sort of unfair. Darn it!

Karina said...

SMYTTY!

Lowetide said...

Ryan Smyth in a close one.

Loxy said...

With the dog years thing, it's as if these two men found out they were dogs and then transfered that to people years.

It doesn't make any sense.

Maybe I just figured they had the mental capacities of.. That's just not nice.

I vote for Smyth.

Got to be the Banff Boy: Ryan Smyth.

sammy said...

Yesterday was so easy, but today I've actually had to spend time thinking about. I have to go with Mr. Mullet :)

Jordi said...

That's not fair, Mullet Man had 3 extra years of living and thus 3 more years of being a sex symbol. LET HORCOFF WIN DAMMIT. (I know this wont work but it was worth a try in my attempt to change the flow)

the nose, the teeth, the yoga, oh my. Scorecoff of course. yum yum.

Close one... but I gotta go with Horcs.

Smyth. He wins on the "loveable" factor.

Rachael said...

Smyth!! He's the only man who has enough personality that he can still look good with a mullet and half his teeth knocked out :)

She said...

Smyth.

No one does "jock-geek-cool" like Ryan.

Anonymous said...

No! Horcoff! He's cuddling a piñada for pete's sake - how can you not feel the love?

Anonymous said...

Nemeses.

OK is it sad that I know a friend of mine well enough to be pretty sure just from reading them that one of those anonymouses voted twice?

Anonymous said...

Oh Captain Canada is so delicous!! But Horc has those sparkling eyes that suck me in! This is so hard!

Verdict is: Damnit there both so sexy!

Sorry boys I can't pick!
