A.J. Francis (6-5, 309) Wants To Be In The ESPN Magazine The Body Issue

  • Rick Chandler

Former Maryland defensive tackle A.J. Francis, who was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in April, has another goal besides the NFL. It’s an unlikely ambition, but if reached, could strike a blow for many of his people. Do not laugh at Francis: he is serious.

Yes, Francis wants to super-size the ESPN the Magazine The Body Issue.

Why not a fat guy? Haven’t we grown tired of lithe, well-toned athletes baring all but their essential naughty bits? With Francis, at least his privates will be hidden naturally, by his fat. You won’t need camera creativity.

And it’s about time someone stood up for large people. Coming next year to Washington D.C.: The Million Pound March?
