10 Reasons Coach Cal Maddox From 'Sweet Magnolias' Is The PERFECT Summer Catch

I'm not afraid to admit that I binge-watched "Sweet Magnolias" on Netflix.

It is the kind of mind-numbing content my mental health needs in 2020. So I definitely recommend watching if you haven't already. And if you do watch, you're going to notice something very specific, just like my girlfriend did:

Coach Cal Maddox, played by actor Justin Bruening, is freaking hot.

Like, if Captain America watched this show, he might feel like he needs to start going to the gym more. That's the type of physique we're talking about here. Not to mention he's all kinds of polite and sweet.

So without further ado, here are a bunch of reasons why Coach Cal from "Sweet Magnolias" has a good chance at being your next TV crush:

1. He's tall.

Always a huge plus.

2. He's great with kids.

Whether it's as a teacher or coach, or as a boyfriend to Maddi's kids, he seems to have a great way of communicating.

3. He's a hard worker and cares about his job.

The Bulldogs were primed for a long playoff push thanks to their Coach.

4. Emotional intelligence is off the charts.

There are countless times throughout the season when Coach Cal knows how to read a room.

5. Great hair.

Question choice of hairstyle, but he pulls it off, and he's got no signs of going bald.

6. Triceps and shoulders straight from a Greek god.

Six-pack included as well.

7. He used to be a professional baseball player.

You could probably have him bust out the ole uniform from time to time for ~special~ occasions.

8. He's a very understanding person.

Maddie's life was all kinds of hectic, and he never blinked.

9. He is super thoughtful and romantic.

Surprise dinner? Check. Flowers? Check.

10. He is patient — not pushy.

He made sure Maddie was ready to go past first, second, and third base multiple times before she waved him home.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
