One of my very first tween-slash-teen crushes was Luc Robitaille. Waaaayyyyyyy back when. he played hockey for the LA Kings. And he was dreamy. He had a dark, curly mullet, because all hockey players seem to go for that look. Nowadays they call it their flow. And he a soft French accent. That accent was not lost on me, even at the tender age of 10 or so.
Mix in the fact that he was a pretty awesome hockey player, and I was totally hooked. While other Kings fans were all about Gretzky, I knew better. Lucky Luc was the one to watch! One of the local tv stations used to go do remotes at his house. When they did that, my mom would let me stay home from school. Just so I could watch my love on TV. I saw he had horses, so I started taking an interest in horses. We would have so much in common!
