I don't know if this has been talked about yet, but it was so shocking I just needed to share. We got our ESPN Magazine today and it’s The Body Issue. I think the best way to describe it would be to say that it's a semi-nude collection of athletes, though the term is loosely defined. Some are actually doing their sports, some are just posing; some are wearing clothes, some are posed with 'stategery.' It's kind of interesting to see who they picked for it, like one of a table tennis player. Anyways, my wife actually looked through it before I did and was showing me a picture of a woman with one leg and guess who I noticed on the page across from her…..
NELSON CRUZ!?!?! So odd. He’s holding a bat and is sweaty (most of the athletes are). It's weird that is who got picked...I guess Tommy Hunter was busy.
Here’s a quote from Michael Young: “Nelly goes about 6’3” 230 lbs and is country-strong. We were in the weight room one day, and some guys were benching 315 lbs. Nelly walks in and says, “Let me hop in.” And he just starts pushing up 315 right away. Without stretching. As a warmup set. That’s just not what normal people do."
Link, though it's behind an Insider wall.
