ESPN Unveils The Bodies We Want In 2013

Admit it. The only issue of ESPN magazine you look forward to is their annual “Bodies We Want” edition. Every year, the publication stops and admires the human form in all its glory. They highlight those male and female athletes who push their physiques to their respective limits. While last year’s bunch as a whole were cumulatively hotter, there are a few standouts in this year’s list, most notably hockey player Joffrey Lupul. YUM!!!

A few of the other men featured in the annual parade of skin include San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Washington Wizards point guard John Wall and Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton. Three-time Masters winner Gary Player makes history as the oldest athlete ever to pose nude for the magazine. Player is a young 77 years. Check out Player and the rest of the guys below.

  • Belladonna

    Don’t get me wrong I love this issue but let’s be real the only reason why it’s so many beautiful men of color in this issue is because most of the biggest sports stars are black or of color . So lets not act like Any other Big Magazines like ( People Magazine who almost never puts black men on the cover of there Sexiest Man ALive Issue) would have put this many people of color in the issue if it wasn’t the norm witch is F*cked Up!!!! And @Donovan you proved my point, The one guy you pointed out to be the most sexy to you was Joffrey ( who’s white or white looking & the oldest looking one but im sure he’s a nice person) But anyone with eyes can see that Vernon, Kenneth, The Sexy man that is Giancarlo, John who is just so cute & The BEAUTIFUL GOD like Looks of…………….COLIN KAEPERNICK !!!!!!! Point Blank People of Color are Beyond Beautiful But all the Media shows is White Beauty witch is F*UCK UP because whit people aren’t the only beautiful people in the damn country!!!!!! And @Donovan I love you but the majority of Sexy Men you show on this site (witch is for all Queer people) Are mostly all White with alittle color here & there. #LifesFunny

  • Belladonna

    OMG! @Donovan I looked at your Last year’s ESPN Body Issue and the people you posted was mostly white guys like I thought. Lol I’m all for liking what you like but this blog is for all Queer people right? If that’s the case then get more people to post on sexy men if you only like white guys. Just saying. #Damn smh lol
