Football rules in Round 3 of ‘Hardwood’

Add this share

manzanares_jose_blog.jpgAh, yes. Round 3 of “The King of the Hardwood” competition. The deadline is Wednesday to register your picks for the latest round in this annual competition where you get to vote for the hottest jocks in sports.

As a reminder, here’s how it works: Our ever-gracious host, Layne, has pre-selected groups of athletes from eight areas – swimming and diving, track and field, hockey and Australian football, tennis, baseball, soccer, pro football and rugby. Every few days, there’s a new qualifying round. Vote for your jericho_luke_blog.jpgfavorites, check the running vote tallies on his blog and look for the final round of 64 in mid-March to coincide with the selections for the NCAA basketball tournament.

Round 3 is all about Australian football, hockey and a few other miscellaneous ones thrown in for good measure. There’s 16 athletes in all, including my favorites Jose Maria Manzanares, a Spanish bullfighter, and Luke Jericho, who plays for Adelaide in the Australian Football League. Dirty boy.
