I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

ESPN’s “BODY ISSUE”: IT IS THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!

ESPN the magazine has released the stunning photos from its upcoming “Body Issue”, the annual look book featuring the world’s top athletes baring all in a series of fully nude photos.
This year’s issue includes 22 male and female athletes in their birthday suits, including 18-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps, five-time MLB All-Star Prince Fielder, and fierce Wimbledon contender Tomas Berdych.

Aside from documenting the side-ass of the most beautiful male athletes, this year’s Body Issue marks a historic first by shooting American soccer midfielder Megan Rapinoe, the first openly gay athlete to pose for the hotly-anticipated issue.

Rapinoe discusses her decision to come out in her personal interview with the magazine. “If you want to stand up and fight for equal rights but then won’t even stand up for yourself and say ‘I’m gay’ — that just started to feel weird,” she said, noting that she officially came out before the 2012 London Olympics because she wanted “to reach as many people as possible.”

Other male athletes posing for the issue include Marshawn Lynch, Serge Ibaka, Larry Fitzgerald, Omar Gonzalez, Bernard Hopkins, Jimmy Spithill, and Nigel Sylvester. 

Check out some of their best shots below:
