Manly Monday

Mark Harmon fits naturally in the Manly Man genre.  We all know him now in his TV Series NCIS and most of the women I know watch it because he is on it :).  Many of us also remember him when he played the  doctors on "St. Elsewhere" (1982) and "Chicago Hope" (1994).

He is a Manly man for other reasons as well. 

He was a football star (following in his father's athletic footsteps was the starting quarterback for the UCLA Bruins football team in 1972 and 1973  ] He received the National Football Foundation Award for All-Round Excellence in 1973 In his two years as quarterback in coach Pepper Rodgers' wishbone offense, UCLA won 17 games and lost only 5.);

He was a college graduate (graduating from UCLA with a B.A. in Communication cum laude in 1974.); 

He was a Hero (In 1996, Harmon saved two teenage boys involved in a car accident outside of his home. Harmon used a sledge hammer from his garage to break the window of their burning car, then pulled them free from the flames.).

All in all, he is a man of many talents complimented by rugged good looks ... a Manly Man for sure.

Join in on the fun of Manly Monday:
This is supposed to be a fun exercise in how different people see different men as Manly. Your “Manly Man” can be anybody. You could even insert a little humor in your choices, if you like. The idea is to have a good time, both in seeing what others post and in your own exploration into who you want to post. Join me every Monday and we will all learn what a Manly Man is ... or isn't.
