Forget the hot Gainesville cops. In Miami, FPL workers get us excited.

The Gainesville Police are getting all the social media love, what with their handsome selfies and beards.

Sure, they can stop crime. But can they make your microwave work?

But in Miami, nothing gets us going like the sight of a man in a neon yellow vest and an FPL bucket reconnecting our damaged electrical grid. Here’s a look at the unsung heroes of South Florida’s post-Hurricane Irma recovery. (On the real, if you see them out in the field, give them some water or soda. They are working overtime.)

Look at how he connects those wires.

Hey, FPL guys. When you get out of that bucket, there is free pizza waiting for you at Blaze. PEDRO PORTAL pportal@miamiherald.com

MORE CABLES! We need more cables.

The way he removes debris gets me all hot and bothered. Wait, maybe it's just because I have no A/C.

I need a hero
