The release of ESPN: The Magazine's annual Body Issue always creates a pretty substantial buzz. Which is completely expected when you combine two such beloved things: sexy professional athletes and nudity.
And because this has become such a cherished annual event, I decided to get a head start for the 2013 issue. ESPN has a lot of their plate and probably won't get back to this for a couple of months, so I don't mind doing some of the leg work.
I also wouldn't mind them cutting me a check for all this pro bono work I do for them. But whatever, that's another matter for another time.
Let's take a look at 20 athletes (actually, it's more like 24...you'll see) who should be on the shortlist for next year's issue!
