ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue hit the news stands on October 9th, 2009. This is the magazines competition to the SI Swimsuit issue where professional athletes from all arenas pose in artistic photos wearing nothing but their birthday suits. There’s some big names in this issue like Dwight Howard, Serena Williams, Adrian Peterson, Carl Edwards, Gina Carano and more.
A couple of LPGA players appear in this issue as well, see below (Photo courtesy of Golf Babes)
Starring in the spread from left to right, you’ve got Sandra Gal, Anna Grzebien and Christina Kim.
I think this picture was tastefully done.
I’ve been reading a couple news stories about whether or not this is the type of publicity that the LPGA wants and it irritates me. It seems to me that out of all the female athletes that posed for the issue, only the lady golfers are catching heat. My only response is, given the current state of the LPGA, I’d think any and all publicity would be welcomed AND appreciated.
It appears that the LPGA tour is accepting of their actions, LPGA’s chief communications officer David Higdon was quoted saying “We support them.”
Love it or hate it, “sex sells..”
I’d also like to add that CK is looking great!
