Did you miss us? Never fear! Midweek Muscles is back and with the official start of the MLS season, we thought we would introduce you to one kick ass American defender, Chris Wingert. Chris, we feel like you are one of those gems that gets overlooked, and we would like to let you know, the girls of Aerys Soccer are hoping to rectify that today.
Chris is a 29-year-old New York boy, who played his college years at St. John’s University. In 2004, he was drafted by the Columbus Crew and after a few switches here and there, finally came to rest with Real Salt Lake, where he fits in perfectly.
He also comes from a soccer family. His dad, Norm, played for Philadelphia Atoms in the North American Soccer League. Other tid bits about Chris? He’s got a great smile and gorgeous blue eyes and he recently posed for the NOH8 campaign, and is a gay4soccer ally….
He’s tough too; he recently was roughed up pretty bad in a game and had to get stitches….even all banged up, he looks good.
Annddd he plays guitar. How is that not hot?
Watch Chris and Real Salt Lake take on the New York Red Bulls Saturday. You can follow him on twitter at @wingert17 or check out his blog on WordPress, though he hasn’t updated in a very long time. We’ll just blame your busy schedule, Chris.
