Hey, Ladies: Here Are The Reasons Dudes Are In Love With Alex Morgan

Men already have plenty of reasons they should date a woman who plays soccer, but US superstar Alex Morgan is no ordinary soccer player, and she's definitely no ordinary woman.

The 26-year-old is an Olympic gold medalist and a FIFA Women's World Cup winner and while success is always a turn-on to the opposite sex, Morgan's on-field accomplishments only begin to explain why every dude -- Ben Higgins included -- is head over heels in love with her.

Morgan, a San Dimas, California native, makes soccer look effortless with a ball at her feet, but it's her make-you-go-weak-at-the-knees smile that brings all the boys to the yard -- or the World Cup final stadium.

Alex Morgan is hot, duh, but I have to start at the top to fully appreciate her beauty. I'm talking about that long, flowing hair, which can only be described in one word: flawless.

Morgan is the type of chick who wakes up beautiful. She doesn't need to put on makeup or do her hair, but that's not to say she doesn't look like a knockout when she does go the extra mile to get all dressed up.

Whether she rocks the sporty look or dresses up for the occasion, Alex Morgan always steals the show. But who am I kidding? If she were wearing a garbage bag, she'd still be the center of attention in any room.

"Baby Horse," as Morgan is affectionately known by her fans, may not be the most imposing figure on the soccer field, but she's got muscles in places I never even thought to check.

Where they make legs like that at?

Even more impressive than Morgan's beauty is the vibe she gives off, which almost says, "I was the hot girl in school, but I didn't let everybody know it. I let the ugly kids borrow my ruler because it was the right thing to do, not because I wanted to be a hero. And, I pushed my friend who was in a wheelchair to class every day."

Morgan wasn't just the hot girl in school who everyone loved, she was also the girl running circles around every guy on the varsity soccer team after class.

There's a reason only one of these two World Cup winners is smiling and has her name on the back of both jerseys. Just saying.

If you need more substantiated reasons every male with a heartbeat loves Alex Morgan, look no further than the cover of FIFA 16, the most dude-approved video game of all time.

Sure, she has to share the spotlight with Lionel Messi, but it's probably because she feels bad for the little guy.

Plus, you know Morgan would be down to play FIFA 16 with you for shots, old-school pregame-style.

Still not convinced? How about the fantasy all guys -- and surely a lot of girls -- have of walking into their bedrooms and finding Alex Morgan lying there wearing nothing but her World Cup and Olympic gold medals?

Then, after you and Alex Morgan engage in the greatest moment of your life, she would place the medals around your neck, crowning you champion of the world.

Hey! Hey, come back to Earth!

But, while fantasies are all well and good, I don't know too many bros who are into getting beat up. So, if you need another reason dudes love Alex Morgan, how about the fact she's not Hope Solo? Just kidding, Hope... kind of.

Getting back to concrete facts, Alex Morgan is super toned. She lifts. She runs. She kicks. Some dudes may find that intimidating, but I think most guys are turned on by a woman who not only works out harder than they do, but also has more passion in one week than they've had their entire lives.

Seriously, where they make them legs at?

You know what would be better than a photo of you and Alex Morgan? You and Alex Morgan in a photo with adorable kittens and puppies you both helped rescue from abusive homes.

Yup, Morgan is an outspoken animal lover who would literally kick the crap out of any animal abuser who crosses her path.

"@ASPCA: #PeopleThatAngerMe Animal abusers!" not only angers me, but literally makes me sick to my stomach — Alex Morgan (@alexmorgan13) December 19, 2011

It's yet another reason to love this badass, goal-scoring machine.

It's hard to pin down one reason every dude loves Alex Morgan. This is the chick you always knew was hot but then saw her in a bikini for the first time and had to run into the ocean to hide your boner.

She's the woman who personifies class but isn't above getting sloshed with friends at a wine tasting.

She's the one who's bigger than you'll ever be but will somehow never make you feel inadequate.

She's a real ride-or-die chick who will always have your back, always make you smile and always keep you on your toes.

*Disclaimer: I'm well aware Alex Morgan is married. That changes nothing.
