ESPN Releases "Bodies We Want 2011" Pictures
And some of them are really hot, such as the one featured here of Alicia Sacramone. Others that are pretty sexy include Gretchen Bleiler, Stephanie Gilmore, Suzy Hotrod, Natasha Hastings, Belen Mozo, and Vera Zvonareva.
It should also be noted that Steven Jackson is an absolute beast. Seriously, the dude has muscles on muscles, which are on top of even more muscles.
You can see the entire gallery here.
The four different covers will feature Bleiler, Hope Solo, Blake Griffin and Jose Reyes. USAToday talked with Bleiler about her decision to do the magazine (she turned down the opportunity in the past):
Why say yes this time?
There's some history that comes with all of it. Basically, when I was younger, when I was just kind of having success in snowboarding, I did some sexy, half-naked shots (for FHM magazine). Afterwards, I chose to eliminate those opportunities from my plan. I was pretty outspoken about why it wasn't for me. The reason I've chosen to say yes now is I'm at a point where I want to do this. Before it was something that I felt like I had to do. But I was younger. Now I'm at a point in my life where I wanted to do it. I didn't think there was a better way to do it than with ESPN and their Body Issue. ... (The issue) shows every type of body can be strong and powerful and beautiful. I love that about it.
I think Bleacher Report should do something that falls in between "The Body Issue" and Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Edition. A little something I like to call "Bleacher Report's Ladies in Uniform."
It's a working title.
Basically, it would be some of Bleacher Report's favorite sexy women—Allison Stokke, Roberta Mancino, Jess Gysin, Leryn Franco, Kim Kardashian (I'm sure she would totally do something like this), etc.—modeling for the site wearing the sexy version of their favorite team's uniform.
Let's make this happen, guys.
My name is Timothy Rapp, and I put the "grrrr" in Swagger.
