Jocks get nude for ESPN the Magazine

New, 7 comments

Golfer Camilo Villegas, soccer's Tim Howard, skater Evan Lysacek, the NBA's Amar'e Stoudemire, the NFL's Patrick Willis and baseball's Hanley Ramirez are among 40 male and female athletes who posed naked (tastefully, of course) for the ESPN the Magazine body issue that hits news stands on Friday.

Villegas is shot in a Spiderman pose, Lysacek in a sprinter's stance and Stoudemire is dunking while covering his privates (photos and a making-of video is below).

This is not the first ESPN body issue and it's cool that some athletes don't mind showing the results of all their hard training (who knew a golfer could be so ripped?) without fear of being labeled gay. How dare ESPN encroach on Outsports' hot jock turf (maybe we can split the royalties).
