The Crushable 25: Will Your Athletic Crush Make It On The List?

We’re working to track down the 25 Most Crushable Guys Under 25. Right now, our intrepid reporters are combing through all the talented (and hot) actors, musicians, athletes and media personalities who are 25 and under and making their mark on the world today for Crushable’s second annual list. Choosing from such a talented pool of men hasn’t been easy. (For reference, see who made last year’s list here.) But we’re determined to narrow down the competition using a number of factors (not least of which includes a contender’s unique “Crushable Quotient”).

Now, we’re stumped on which of these five insanely talented (and hot) athletes to include on our list. You can cast your vote below and the winner will be our Reader’s Write In athlete. (You’ve already helped us choose your favorite Internet sensation and favorite musician.) So will your crush make this year’s list? Tell your friends to vote, too, and make it happen. Read on to find out more about each choice.

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

College Life: The Idiot’s Guide To Tailgating

College Life: The Idiot's Guide To Tailgating

I arrived home from my trip to visit a massive, football-loving state state school this weekend with what looked like a black eye that could have been the result of being punched in the face, or falling off a bike.

I had previously been of the opinion that partying was the easy part of the collegiate lifestyle. Such perceptions changed when I returned from visiting my friend. Tailgating a football game, or so I learned the hard way, can be a taxing affair for the uninitiated. More »

Next time you think about buying that pair of Louboutin’s that you just can’t afford, don’t feel too guilty. Allow your mind to wander from those coveted shoes to John W. Henry, who is imminently due to spend £300K ($478K) on a single purchase. Money of this kind is small change to Henry, co-founder and principal owner of New England Sports Ventures and parent company of Boston Red Sox baseball team.
