It is FINALLY September, which means that the NFL season has begun. Boys and girls everywhere are doing their research, setting their lineups and talking smack on the fantasy message boards. In honor of my second favorite time of the year, this week’s man crush is actually a bromance: Pete and Kevin from FX’s The League.
Pete and Kevin are best friends, and terrible people. Their conniving and collusion against the other members of their fantasy league is unparalleled and really fun to watch. They are friends that can take it and dish it out even worse.
Kevin is the commissioner of their league, which I can relate to, as I’m the commish of the Gentle Rage league. He is constantly having to put up with the ridiculous requests of the others but he has sadly never won the coveted Shiva trophy. Yes, they named their trophy after their dorky high school valedictorian/taker of Kevin’s virginity.
Pete is recently divorced and probably not someone your parents would want you to date. He hooks up with Ruxin’s AU pair, vultures Andre’s online date matches, and is obsessed with the fantasy league.
These guys are terrible, but their friendship is deep and they would probably do anything for each other. Except maybe make a trade before gameday. They are cute in a manly sort of way and I would definitely want to watch a game at Gibson’s with them.
