PHOTO: USA Soccer Hero Gets Nakey For ESPN Mag’s Body Issue
September 16 / Dan Fogarty / SportsGrid
For those of you used to seeing your naked athletes through grainy cell phone photos, ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue may be a shock to the system.
Team USA Soccer goalie and all-American hero Tim Howard will appear nude in the upcoming edition (albeit with strategically-placed goalie gloves blocking his junk. Sorry ladies).
In addtion to Howard, tennis star Venus Williams, pool-playing hottie Jeannette Lee, pretty much the entire USA Men's Water Polo team, and a bunch of Division 1 college athletes (what?) will appear sans clothes.
We're doing a story about athletes crapping their pants. It's funny, it's interesting, its personal, its revelatory...It's a story that will get the most buzz because it's a place where no sports magazine, as far as I know, has ever dared to go.
