Are the Winter Olympics responsible for my thinking that hockey is now hot, or have hockey players always been stealing the ladies off the market? When I usually think of hockey I think of smashed teeth, pucks flying, and beating people with sticks (a lot of fun where you can beat the shit out of people).

The men are the definition of tough men, so why not marry them? The only reason why I’m flabbergasted that these players are putting rings on beautiful celebs is because they aren’t in the news all the time and are extremely hot (or is it just because I don’t follow this sport?).

Here are 5 couples of¬† hot ladies and hockey players.¬†Note: Most of the players’ names are Mike. Coincidence?

1. Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie

Hilary Duff's Engagement Ring Revealed

They recently got engaged in Hawaii. Who knew that Hilary Duff was dating this guy for two years? It’s weird when the Disney actors/actresses act all grown up. And plus, Comrie is in his late 20s!

2. Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher

The latest casualty of baseballs steroid era.

The latest casualty of baseball's steroid era.

A little over a week ago, Alex Rodriguez¬†admitted to having used performance-enhancing substances ‚Äď a big¬†no-no in the¬†sports world, for those who don’t know.¬† Rodriguez, who has been a New York Yankee for the past five seasons, was pegged as the next “legitimate” home run king after Hank Aaron. Meanwhile, the current career¬†home run leader,¬†Barry “I¬†Didn’t¬†Do Nothing”¬†Bonds (whose skull grew about an inch in circumference while he played with the Giants), is about to stand trial against perjury charges stemming from his initial t√™te-√†-t√™te¬†with a Federal Grand Jury.¬† But, as I imagine is the case when one mixes¬†ice skating with uncoordinated offensive linemen ‚Äď the bigger they are, the harder they fall.¬† Not that I care too much about the fall guy, in this case.

I’ve been a Yankees fan since I was four, watching Yankee lifers like Don Mattingly and Bernie Williams in¬†my grandparents’ living room¬†with my grandpa.¬† So I can’t help but feel at least a little sympathy for¬†Rodriguez ‚Äď despite the¬†fact that¬†he’s overpaid and¬†chokes when it counts (yes, Red Sox fans,¬†we think so, too).¬† Regardless, Sports Illustrated’s little¬†“revelation” is further proof that the¬†baseball establishment¬†has taken a headfirst slide into the upturned cleats of corruption and greed.¬† If the man dubbed the next “true” hero of the game admits to wrongdoing in the name of inflated statistics, who can we trust?
