Pickup Lines That Would Only Work on Sports Fans

    Pickup lines can be fun and all, but they aren't always the best way to get a girl's number.

    Like a good joke, wit and perfect timing make a pickup line most effective—as well as interest from the girl—so it can be a slippery slope busting them out all the time.

    But when a girl knows sports well, it really makes the ones a dude can use even better—and these are just a few that any sports fan would appreciate.

Nice Skates...Wanna Cross the Blue Line with Me?

    One of the first dates I ever took a girl on was ice skating—and I was convinced that she was the one for me.

    Of course that was in third grade, so what did I really know?

    As an adult now, this might be a good line to bust out on a girl the next time I get on the ice, because it’s so corny it's guaranteed to make her laugh.

I Couldn't Help but Notice You Have the Same Jersey on as Me

    It’s no secret that fans everywhere like to wear their favorite jersey during a sporting event.

    And while it’s usually weird to be donning the same outfit as the opposite sex, in sports, it’s completely cool, so use this line to break the ice.

    If you’re both fans of the same player, you already have something in common, so that’s a positive.

I See You Heart Is Going Back to Pass...Interception!

    Be warned while using this one, because the last thing you want is to make a girl think you’re trying to take her heart against her will.

    Still, assuming she’s a big enough football fan to understand what you mean, this is one that could draw a few laughs and, if lucky enough, maybe actually happen—and there won’t be a flag for roughing the passer!

I Wouldn't Pay $2 Billion for the Clippers, but I Would for Dinner with You

    While former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer might have been willing to drop $2 billion for the L.A. Clippers, most girls would be even more impressed if you were to toss out that number to spend an evening with them, rather than own a sports team.

    Of course, whoever that girl is better be worth it, because that’s a hell of a lot of loot!

I Want to Put a Ring Bigger Than One of Nick Saban's on Your Finger

    It might not be the most romantic way to ask a girl for her hand in marriage, but for a diehard sports fan, it might just be exactly what she wants to hear.

    With the Alabama Crimson Tide head coach flashing four national title rings, this pickup line would no doubt impress a lady who likes lots and lots of diamonds—which is just about any girl.

They Call Michael Jordan the GOAT, but I Think You Really Are

    Michael Jordan’s name is synonymous with greatness, so if you’re really trying to compliment someone, why not toss it out and actually say that person is even better than MJ?

    It might not be true on the basketball court, but, hey, you’re trying to score a date, not a game of one-on-one.

Your Hands Are Softer Than Calvin Johnson's

    This one could be weird if you don’t know the girl, so be careful not to freak her out by going up to her and rubbing her hands.

    After breaking the ice, though, hold her hands and tell her that they’re as soft as the greatest wide receiver's in the NFL right now, Calvin Johnson.

    The dude can grab anything, and using this line will help you snag a couple more hours with the lady you’re telling this to.

Your Smile Shines Brighter Than a Gold Medal

    Let’s face it, everyone would love an Olympic gold medal.

    But because the majority of us weren’t blessed with world-class athletic skills, the next best thing is to be compared to one.

    And if you tell a girl that her smile shines as bright as the rare commodity, there’s a good chance you’ll finish first place in her heart.

I Bet You Play Soccer Because You're a Keeper

    Unlike a soccer goalie, using this line on a girl will actually be a good score—as I bet she hands her number to you.

    With the popularity of the sport over the past year with the World Cup being played earlier this summer, there’s a good bet that she’ll appreciate the compliment.

You're Sweeter Than a Steph Curry Jumper

    Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is widely considered the greatest jump-shooter in the NBA—and maybe ever—so this one is a no-brainer to use.

    Forget telling her that she’s sweeter than candy, and really give her a compliment that she’ll enjoy—courtesy of the silky smooth jumper of Curry, which is a gorgeous sight to see.

You're Hotter Than the 2022 World Cup in Qatar

    You may not be checking the weather in Qatar now, but in 2022 when soccer’s World Cup is scheduled to be hosted there, you might.

    Here’s a quick look at it—it’s in the triple digits.

    So while calling a girl hot is good and all, actually having a little reference to point to is even better—especially if it leads into a conversation other than just soccer.

I'd Love to See Your Backfield in Motion

    This one’s risky because, well, not every girl prefers a guy who immediately breaks the ice with a mention of her, ahem, backfield.

    Still, maybe she’s a regular Kim Kardashian who doesn’t mind snapping pics of her booty and posting them all over the place, so it’s worth a shot.

    Worst-case scenario is you end up with a red cheek from being slapped—which happens to the best of them.

You're a Catch Worthy of a Gold Glove

    Winning a Gold Glove takes skill, with the recipient having defensive skills that separate them from their peers.

    Knowing how tough it can be, complimenting your lady by telling her she’s a catch worthy of one will no doubt make her blush—and might even score you a number.

Are You a Titans Fan? Because You're the Only Ten I See

    This one is absolutely classic—and it actually takes elements from the NFL’s Tennessee Titans too!

    But be prepared for some eye-rolling since it’s super cliché and cheesy.

Don't Worry, Baby, I Won't Bite

    Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez might be known for biting opposing players, but your crush can rest easy when you tell her you won’t.

    Of course, that could always backfire if she actually likes biting, which in that case, you may be doing yourself a favor by just finding someone else to go hit on.
