ESPN: The Magazine is set to drop its annual "Body Issue" on readers and Web surfers alike this week. And the first set of images has been released.
Beautiful snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler and sultry soccer goalkeeper Hope Solo each grace one of the Body Issue covers looking hotter (and wearing less clothing) than ever.
In contrast to last year's very much hit-or-miss issue, most of The Mag's 2011 subjects look pretty damned good. You can almost understand why they're willing to appear in public au naturel.
Follow along—won't you?—as we run through the images released thus far and rank them from nottest to hottest.
