I’ll have to take Salon’s word for it on this one. Chris Kluwe is the sexiest man of the year. Not just cause of the beefcake either. It’s cause he cares about stuff and isn’t afraid to speak his mind. Speaking out is sexy, guys. Make a note of that. You know what else is sexy? Making NFL bank. And being a bad-ass on video games. Does Tetris count? How about Angry Birds? I don’t do any of that Call of Duty or Skyrim crap. Makes my head hurt.

All joking aside, congrats to Kluwe on this honor. I bet if you did a survey of NFL players a bunch of them would rather have this than MVP. Aaron Rodgers? Sexiest man in the world or MVP? Which one you want? Or do you just want a pair of elevator shoes? Damn you 60 Minutes!

In case you’re wondering: Yes, Kluwe does get razzed in the locker room about his various shirtless photo shoots. He told Salon:

"Oh, of course. That’s just a given in any locker room when anyone does a photo shoot. But I think if Tom Brady can pose with a baby goat I should be able to pose with my shirt off."

Chris Kluwe reponds to being named Salon’s sexiest man of the year. Via tweet!
