It was comedian Daniel Tosh who once said, "I'm sick of the media making female sports athletes into supermodels, when they're clearly sixes at best. I don't need to be told how hot Danica Patrick is. There's nothing hot about her. Maybe it's sexy when her hair's blowing in the wind when she's in last place."
Okay, that was a little harsh, but it wasn't entirely off base. I've had a lot of the same feelings, especially regarding female athletes who are not particularly good at their given sport.
Most female athletes aren't remarkably unattractive, but many of them wouldn't stand out in a crowd of us regular folks.
As a straight woman, I think I approach the issue from the same perspective of a straight, semi-famous male with a pile of money. We both have an unlimited and superficial pool of women who may, or may not meet our unrealistic needs and/or expectations.
That being said, let's take a look at some of the best female athletes in sports and determine if (I think) they're hot.
