Greg Oden of the Portland Trail Blazers has apparently joined the list of pro jocks who have shown the world their penises. I guess Oden has a lot of time on his hands rehabbing from a knee injury. The photos have surfaced on the website World Star Hip Hop. The photos were posted today and already have 231,000 page views on the site. The next day, Oden apologized.
Here is the link to the very not-safe-for-work shots of Oden done as a video slideshow. The comments from the site's readers admiring what they see use the "no homo" line at least a dozen times.
Here are some other athletes who have been exposed to the masses:
Chris Cooley, Washington Redskins.
Visanthe Shiancoe, Minnesta Vikings tight end.
Santonio Holmes, Pittsburgh Steelers.
Jeff Reed, Pittsburgh Steelers.
Grady Sizemore, Cleveland Indians.
Hat tip to Deadspin for the Oden link.
Update: Oden says he's sorry:
Oden says the pictures, taken with his cellphone and sent to a former girlfriend, were taken about 1½ years ago. A friend told the 21-year-old Tuesday morning that the pictures were making the rounds on the Internet.
"I would like to apologize to everybody: Portland, the fans, the organization," Oden told reporters at the Blazers practice facility. "It was very embarrassing."
