It’s Father’s Day, and in New Orleans we have been blessed with some pretty delicious dads. Today we’re sharing some of our favorite father figures with major dad swag.
At 6’8” you’re getting the full Monty with this New Orleans Pelicans Head Coach. While the Pels Players may call Monty big papa on the court, he has a full team of five at home. In addition to working out with the team, Coach Monty leads family sweat sessions three times a week to keep the Williams kids in tip top shape. Monty says his father is his hero. Well, Coach Monty, you can be our knight in shining Under Armour.
Kevin is no doubt the strong sensitive type. As the front- man of Better Than Ezra, he has serenaded more New Orleans ladies than Casanova. With his down to earth attitude, Kevin has been known to write a verse or two with the latest and greatest in the music biz. As a father of three, he is patient, dedicated, and so completely in love with his kids. In a recent interview with Origin Magazine Kevin said: “Seeing my children in the morning as they come down from their bedrooms makes my heart come alive.” Well, ladies, if that doesn’t strike a chord in your dad-loving heart, I’m not sure what will!
Jason Williams is the definition of a politician who pleases. Behind his sexy smile is a whole lotta power. As current Councilmember-at-Large and former lawyer, Jason knows how to lay down the law. After dealing with City Council all day, raising Jason’s two kids is a breeze. His support for family-friendly organizations like The Audubon Nature Institute, Partnership for Youth Development, and Lusher Charter School send our hearts aflutter. Jason, you’ve got our vote for one sexy Dad.
Sure, we all love John Besh, but there’s more than one foodie cutie in this town. Donald Link knows that the way to a woman’s heart is through her tastebuds. He is the dish behind the dishes at Cochon, Butcher, and Peche. One of the perks of snuggling up to this saucy chef – he tests his recipes at home! With his latest cookbook “Down South,” Donald definitely knows what’s on our minds!
A tall dark and handsome man that isn’t afraid to dive in, take charge, and spend his days protecting innocent citizens from villainous injustice. We’re talking about that investigative hunk Lee Zurik. Don’t let the squeaky clean appearance fool you; Lee can get down and dirty with the worst of Nola’s white collar criminals. We can only imagine that every day with Lee is like an episode of Criminal Minds. Mrs. Zurik, you are one lucky lady.
Breesy baby, no list is complete without you. We’re not so sneaky about our quarterback love attack for this passionate player. Sunday after Sunday, Drew brings faith to our home team, and we don’t mind those black uniform pants either! Can someone say “Tight End?” We love that you’re an awesome dad, and with your gorgeous growing family, we know there’s a handsome future for mankind. Drew, if it were up to us we’d canonize you Saint Sexy!
So, those are some poppas that really perk us up. Leave us a comment, and let us know: Who’s your choice for Nola’s studliest dad?
