Call this the parade of women who can kick your ass. I don’t know who most of them are, but ESPN got them all to pose in contorted nudity to glorify the female body without showing any female parts. Not exactly classical Greek standards, but it meets the U.S. advertising restrictions of no nipples, no bush while showing off glutes and pecs and biceps and other things certain dudes like about muscular women. ESPN is better at sports coverage than S.I. so it makes sense than in the reverse they’d be worse at producing a big annual issue of hot women. If you can muddle past Prince Fielder without his clothes on you can see a United Colors of Benetton assortment of pretty good looking ladies with and without their natural limbs. I guess the lesson here is that if you’re a professional athlete and you train six hours a day, you will have a pretty stellar body. I feel like I could have picked up on that factoid without being subjected to Prince Fielder’s bare gunt.
