Obligatory Post About The ESPN Body Issue

ESPN‘s annual Body Issue is the most exciting thing to happen to the male physique since the Dieux du Stade calendar. The magazine that previously brought you Steve Holcomb‘s big ol’ bobsled bear ass and NFL player Steven Jackson‘s bulging pectorals has returned with even MORE gratuitous male athlete skin.

This year’s issue features New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski showing off his tight end, a particularly interesting development given his ridiculous porn star “scandal” back in October. Personally, I would have rather seen the Pats’ other Rob naked, but this is still hot as fuck.

If you’re curious to find out who else stripped down, you’ll have to click through and scroll through the images. I’m too lazy to list all of their damn names! Also, for those of you who are curious what sport they play, what team they play for or any of those finer details, hold your mouse over their pics for the answer.
