Beefcake Award For Glasgow Man

A Glasgow Rugby man has been awarded a prestigious prize in a major competition in a businesswomen's magazine. But the beefcake title has not gone to any of the professional players.Company Magazine's Bachelor of the Year award has been won by Gordon Hood, Glasgow's marketing executive and Hillhead/Jordanhill centre. The prize is a week's holiday for two in New York.Glasgow players, at least the single men among them, had mixed feelings on receiving the news of Gordon's success. They were pleased that the title had come to Glasgow Rugby, but they are disappointed that they have been overlooked in favour of one of the management team."What are these people playing at?" asked one of the Glasgow players when the news broke in Dublin this morning. "It's preposterous!" But it was difficult to tell whether his tongue was in his cheek.Gordon was over the moon when, speaking by mobile phone en route to a weekend in Skye, he was interviewed by www.glasgowrugby.com. "I"m really chuffed. I didn't think I had a chance, especially with professional players among the contestants," he modestly claimed."I"m looking forward to the trip to New York with whoever is going with me. Offers on post cards, please."A Glasgow Rugby man has been awarded a prestigious prize in a major competition in a businesswomen's magazine.
