    I just went to the team site, and they have a link in the upper left hand corner to vots for "wonder boy" as the sexiest man in the world! OH COME ON!!! That's sooooooooo sad.... I can't believe the front office approved adding that to the site!

    Go preach it on the official landon thread.
    but also ... it's pub for the team and it's not like they're in the position to turn down free publicity.

    Stonie mentioned this during the game. He said he had talked to Landon about it and had told Landon he would mention it during the broadcast. Stonie said Landon really wanted to win this thing and told him to go ahead and mention it. :D

    Did anyone else see Monday night's Nightline? It started out discussing how Kournikova has become one of the most watched tennis players and even though she hasn't won any leading matches, she brings in the viewers, mostly male. This turned to an examinaton of how athletics has to sell itself. I was surprised to hear every sport in the nation with the exception of gridiron football being called a niche sport. Everyone of them has to sell itself and sex is certainly one of the ways that it is done. While I thought of this, I thought of the pro- and anti-"Landon-as-hottie" groups that appear on this board. On one side, we seem to have soccer purists who frown on the idea of having a sexy wunderkind as poster boy and on the other side people who don't see anything wrong with having a good-looking kid as the MLS and US Soccer ad kid. Yes, it may go to somewhat of an extreme with Landon being a candidate for Cosmo's sexiest athlete, but I think it's necessary in today's world of competition between sports for a bigger share of the audience pie.

    I agree Albany. Although this COSMO "Landon for sexiest man ever in the world" thing maybe a little overboard, all of the publicity Landon has brought to himself and the sport of soccer in the US is definately a positive thing. Attendance is attendance my friends, no matter what someone's motive for going to the game may be. So if Landon can attract fans in other ways than by his soccer skills, I say, keep 'em coming.

    Here here! When we sell out on a regular basis we can wory about "why" people come to a match. Until then we need to be happy with every butt that's in a seat, for whatever reason they come.

    That guy's hair is too spiky and styled to be Freddie's. My bet is Nick Carter.

    Your right about the attendance thing.

    Its not like the stats read:

    Overall Att: 9,301
    Real Fans: 5,200
    Landonites : 4,101

    Bums on seats, kids......isnt that one of the main issues around Spartan these days?

    Sexiest man in sport? Im no expert, but I reckon Jim Curtin is a babe
