Lolo Jones Takes It All Off for ESPN

Ever since the Beijing Olympics I’ve been a fan of American sprinter and Rashida Jones doppelganger, Lolo Jones. Thankfully ESPN is releasing their much ballyhooed “The Body Issue” edition of the otherwise useless ESPN the Magazine where she is prominently featured. For this issue ESPN photographed various athletes (tastefully) nude and to highlight some of these incredible athletic bodies. I for one am most thankful they included Lolo.

Here is one of the photos they took, click on it to see a slightly more NSFW version complete with butt crack!

She seemed down with it all too, saying:

It was pretty cool and the whole shoot was done in a very tasteful and discreet way. The whole premise behind the shoot was not to create sex appeal, but to portray a strong, beautiful, athletic woman and I think we achieved that. I’m not very comfortable in those situations, in fact I’m quite conservative. But the whole crew helped me through any unease, and I felt a lot more contented with the shoot when I thought of it as being just like a drug test.

I can only hope this leads to many similar photos of Ms. Jones and none of fellow Bodies Issue photographee Joba Chamberlain.

Wherein I Take a Quote Out of Context and Make it Sound More Sexual

maria-sharapova-modeling-pictures-2ESPN the Magazine — or as I call it, that thing ESPN sends me every month to throw out — had tennis star Maria Sharapova guest edit their magazine for the June 26th issue. As part of the exercise they asked her some questions about what she would do to make the tennis world better.

Among her answers was this one that I think most fans of women’s tennis would be in favor of: “Athletes should play au naturel.”

Agreed. I’m glad she was the one to say it, because no one seems to be listening to me…
