Professional sports have come a long way since the 1960s. The amount of money now associated with the various leagues around North America (and the rest of the world), means sport is today viewed as a high-pressured business environment.
Another area in which sport has grown is the entertainment industry. As well as making more money, professional athletes can become stars in their own right, depending on factors such as their skill level, personality, sex appeal and who they’re going out with.
One such person taking advantage of this is the Argonauts Mike Bradwell. The wide receiver certainly fits the profile; professional football player, qualified civil engineer, part-time model and dating Aliya-Jasmine Sovani.
As such, it comes as little surprise that Bradwell will be featured on the cover of the next edition of Elle Man, the monthly Canadian Men’s magazine:
What the hell?! Admittedly there’s a certain element of envy towards Bradwell, but will you take a look at those pants?!?!
While you would never accuse anyone who plays professional football of being “yellow” (trademark of Biff Tannen, Back to the Future), I trust Bradwell’s Argonauts teammates will give him a rightly-deserved ton of abuse when training camp starts in June.
