The hottest team in Denver (#1 Pioneer hockey (6-2-2) is paired with the hottest broadcast duo in Denver this weekend.
DU reality TV star JJ Lane is paired with his hockey broadcast partner Jay Stickney on the cover of next month’s People Magazine Rockies West edition. The pair are called, “Sexiest Men in the Booth,” – the same edition that labels Blake Shelton as the “sexiest man alive”.
People Magazine was writing a feature story on JJ Lane and his new broadcast role for DU hockey several months ago when his dynamic partner, Jay Stickney, was ‘discovered’ by the People staff. As the season has progressed, their chemistry has been obvious to local fans at Magness Arena who began to notice wives and girlfriends with one eye on the ice and the other eye on the booth. The broadcast partners even have a nickname – “booth candy” .
JJ Lane first noticed the chemistry when they went out for a drink and Lane, a leading man on both The Bachlerette and Bachelor in Paradise, “became a wingman – for the first time ever”.
But Stickney doesn’t want his newly found fame to detract from the 8-time champions on the ice – so he is “dressing down” on game days. “I want people to know that I can call games, too.”
When asked where JJ’s left hand is on the cover of People Magazine, Stickney replied, “the dump button.”
