Hot Pole Competition
How could Barihunks pass up the opportunity to mention the latest Hot Pole competition? It's not what it sounds like, as it was actually a singing competition. In the men's division, the top three prizes went to baritones, all of whom could make a claim to being barihunks. However, the Hot Pole winner by far is Jaroslaw Kitala, who is every bit as gorgeous as Mariusz Kwiecien, who regularly graces these pages.
Kitala won second prize in the 14th Ada Sari International Vocal Art Festival in Nowy Sącz, Poland. He lost to Stanisław Kierner who you can find on YouTube singing Handel, Caccini and Bach (http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=lw2xXe7pp4A). Third place went to Patryk Rymanowski, whose last name I could have some fun with. He's pretty fine, too, but not in the Kitala/Kwiecien classkowski.
