scruffiest week ever

God, it's been a good week for scruff, probably the best week in scruff coverage on the 'net for at least the next year or so:
eric, chris and jason - all hottie, all the time
It is fortunate that it has been a good week for scruff, considering it seems to be a slow week in the media - the other headlines are consumed with news about hunting accidents.

Updated With More Scruff 2/16:

- First, from Joe.My.God, a pictoral review of the Blarg Hop that happened last weekend in NYC featuring a super-scruffy picture of Eric and his DP. Eric has gold-medal scruff in the Men's Scruff Competition of the winter Olympics.

- Yesterday Jason Statham jumped off the cover of Men's Health to scruff me up as only he can. Props to Just Jared, who seems to be more on the ball with Scruffwatch that I am a lot of the time.

- And how could I leave out the overexposed and overhyped 'rebel' skiier Bode Miller. While this scrufftastic hottie is everywhere, I kinda question his status as 'rebel' considering how much time he's spent with EVERY magazine in the country getting his picture taken, and his rather well-designed website.

- Plus I think Alpine skiing Olympian Chip Knight is cuter than Bode, scruffier and often bearded.

- Former D.C. DoT head Dan Tangherlini appointed as interim Metro General Manager this week. Close-cropped bearded (borderline scruffy enough to qualify for Scruff Week), I think this adorkable and hard-working bureaucrat lives near me, as I've seen him on the platform at the U Street station a couple of times.

- And finally Towleroad takes a breather from yammering incessantly about that one movie and features some super-hot pics of Chris Evans. The pictures just turn my crank. But then again I can feel spring approaching and my crank is easily turned these days.

Could ScruffWeek possibly get any better? Thanks for all the Valentines and wishes y'all.

Being put in the same company as Jason Statham and Chris Evans is extremely flattering, although obviously I am not worthy enough even to lick their boots.

Oh Lord, now I’m aroused.

Chris Evans...he could be my human torch ANY DAY!!!!

Happy V-day Jimbo!

Shouldn't be too hard to find you some non-famous scruff, just a matter of timing. The hunting and capture of the most challenging prey, the stable, fun, scruffy, outdoorsy, man variety is difficult, but well rewarded.

Just don't mount the head on the wall, at least not without the body.

question: did that neighbor of your friend die in that fire? I think I read something about how they find a body that couldn't escape, but I wasn't sure if it was the same fire.

Hey, this reminds me...whatever happened to your promised playing-card-suit-based chest hair rating system?

i'd have to give the gold to jason statham ... he's the epitomy of what makes ruff & scruff hot.

I'm pleased to see the very adorable Dan T taking over Metro. When I used to get off at U St, I'd often walk up the escalator with him. Oh he'd make my knees weak. I'd watch the CityCable channel during the Transportation hearings just for him. Unfortunately he's married, but if he strips during his first interaction as Metro head for the council, I'd pay even 25% more for Metro.

Now as to scruff definition: Is it still scruff if you're just too lazy to shave during the week, or is it then pre-beard laziness?

Exactly what is Chris Evans doing? Whatever it is, he looks real perty with that scruff.

I'm flattered at the mention of my husband Chip as scruffy and sexy. I agree. He's pretty hot.
