I am by no means professing to know a damn thing about football or any sports for that matter, but I have come to understand that people like to partake in ‘Fantasy Leagues‘ when it comes to their favourite recreational activities. I actually don’t really know what this means, but I’m going to assume you get to put together a group of your choosing, picking your favourite athletes to make up this fantasy team. As a non-sportsfan I still want to partake, so I’ve decided to put together a team of my own ‘Fantasy Crush League’ consisting of some scrumptious fictional characters from my favourite tv shows and movies. Enjoy!
Jake Ryan from Sixteen Candles
This guy, this guy right here is a winner. Popular, hunky, and throws a raging bash. Also, SPOILER ALERT…the fact that he chooses the quirky, awesome girl at the end just makes all us odd-balls out there swoon. You bite that lip, Jake Ryan, I certainly won’t stop you.
Jack Donaghy from 30 Rock
Mmm…Jack Donaghy has been a long time crush of mine. He’s confident, business savvy, sharp as a whip, and by-god, look at those icey blue eyes, and immaculate head of hair. An unstoppable force of genetically-blessed nature.
Jordan Catalano from My So-Called Life
So, by this point you surely realize I look for any excuse to talk about Jordan Catalano. So what, who cares?! He’s the ultimate dream boat. His vacant stare, his 90’s choker, his messy hair, his flannel…he’s one smooth operator. If he was leaning in a hall near me, surely it would be impossible to ignore the magnetic force of those pretty eyes.
‘Driver‘ from Drive
He’s a sweetie…he’s a bad ass…he is responsible for the above…is there anything else you need to know??? I didn’t think so.
Zak from Fern Gully
This was probably my very first crush, the construction worker from the enchanting film Fern Gully. I was approximately 4 years old, and I proclaimed to all that would listen that Zak was ‘babealicious’. Looking back on this guy now though, you put that hair up in a bun? You’ve got yourself a Lords of Dogtown-esque hottie. Ladies? Am I right? Am I right? I totally am.
Dan Humphrey from Gossip Girl
Dan was such a heartthrob. His unruly mop of black hair, manly pout, and his persistent 5 o’clock shadow? Definitely all okay in my books. Also, you can just tell from his many years of good work on the show, that he is an excellent kisser and a totally awesome date. I would gladly eat perogies and talk about books with you, Lonely Boy.
Aidan Shaw from Sex and the City
I am an enormous Sex and the City fan, and have seen the series countless times. At the end of the day, my favourite man of the show was by farrrrr Aidan Shaw. Good lord is he every dreamy. He was totally crushable when they first met with his messy hair, his way with wood (he was a carpenter), and his unflinching morals…but when he returned in Season 4 in the Ghost Town episode, the crush went to a whole new level. He had toned up, got a bit of a tan, and was sporting this suavely adorable haircut. He’s funny, he’s hot, he’s talented, he’s smart, HE OWNS A LITTLE CABIN IN THE WOODS…come to think of it…this guy may be the perfect man.
Adam Sackler from Girls
I know I shouldn’t, but I can’t help myself, I love Adam Sackler. Sure there are some GLARING red flags: likes to humiliate the girls he sleeps with, is pretty selfish, and is incredibly withholding. Butttttt I meaaaannnn, what’s a girl to do? He’s quite the character, his looks are so interesting, as if he’s from Siberia, and really and truly, there should be a law that the dude is not allowed to wear a shirt. Sometimes love don’t make sense y’all! The heart wants what the heart wants!
Side bar: That Gosling video reminded me of how amazing the Drive Soundtrack is. Take a listen immediately.
