FC Edmonton goalkeeper a finalist for Cosmo’s Bachelor of the Year contest By Steven Sandor Posted on October 1, 2012 0 0 486 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Lance Parker PHOTO: W.J. WALSH FC Edmonton goalkeeper Lance Parker is one of the finalists for Cosmopolitan magazine’s Bachelor of the Year contest. When Parker isn’t tending goal for the Eddies, he’s a major international male model, jetting around the world to pose in photo shoots. Google “Lance Parker” and you will get the idea — his modelling photos outnumber his soccer photos by at least 10 to one. His combination of modeling career/soccer career has made him one of the NASL’s most recognized players. Cue the Zoolander jokes. Now, he’s representing his home state of Oklahoma as Cosmopolitan has gathered 50 of America’s most eligible bachelors. Fans go online to vote for their favourite single men — and the winner gets US$10,000. The contestants post e-mail contacts and Twitter handles, so on top of the $10K prize, there is the likelihood of many phone numbers being sent their way. Voting ends on Oct. 18.

On his contestant page, Parker describes himself: “I’m relaxed, hardworking, cultured, confident, and athletic.” But while he is listed as a professional soccer goalie, nowhere does it mention that he plays for the Eddies.
