I'm working on a decent pre-Christmas party buzz and not in the mood to think playoffs or the moral basis of torture.....

Trying to come up with the winner of "coolest" pro athlete. Hard to really define but some combination of how they play, look, conduct themselves, move the brand, get paid. etc.

I came up with these 3 finalists:
1) Russell Westbrook: OKC Thunder. May very well be the best athlete in a league of the best overall athletes on earth. Great wardrobe, great interview. Seems like a good kid
2) Rickie Fowler: PGA tour. Best player in the world last year behind Rory. Using tour as an ATM, top 10 machine. Reinvented Puma brand. Motocross is hobby. most 40 yr old dudes follow Tiger's 4some, All the kids and good looking women are following Rickie
3) Cristiana Ronaldo: Real Madrid. Plays at a different level in the worlds most popular sport. Always in complete control, never flustered. Great hair. Has to have protection from women at all times by bodyguards, one recently who was Ms. Universe.

I'm going with......RICKIE!

I'm going to go with Patrick Kane. He likes to party, he shows up to play beer league games in the offseason, and seems like a pretty cool dude in general. Not to mention the success he's had on the ice and also being an integral part of reviving the Chicago Blackhawks.

All of the above plus:

Tom Kristensen...retiring all time Le Mans champ..all of Denmark loves him..or pick your favorite high profile F1 driver
Kyrie Irving...media work shows he's already planning future past BBall
Cutch...because he is Cutch Barry Bonds minus roids and dickitude
Anthony Davis...owns the next ten years of NBA and embraces the unibrow
The hockey dude who married Carrie Underwood

no Adam Scott? In the senior category definitely M.A. Jiminez.

I'd party with Kimi Raikonnen. He's got a rep even in F1 circles. Christensen a pretty cool choice, though, too, Smith. He's probably got a story or two.

Geno Malkin probably pretty damn hilarious. Offshore sport fishing, maybe a few models and some expensive vodka?

When Ashley Judd is the least attractive WAG in the group, you know you're in the right sport.

Raikonnen hit the jackpot.

Rickie Fowler comes off about as cool as Justin Beiber.

The funbags on Scherzinger (Lewis' wifey) are pretty certifiable, too.

Seems that hockey players, soccer players and F1 drivers get the five star WAGs. Baseball players also, Jeter being the prime example.
