Naked Lady Monday

Hello, Monday. It seems every few days while checking my blog stats I’ll come across someone who found me by searching “Naked Lady Athletes.” First, I commend you smutty searchers. Second, here come 1,000 more search hits. The annual ESPN Body Issue is chock full of heavenly bodies, all ripped and ready to go. I can't really speak to the reasoning behind such a shoot other than as a shameless showcase of the most beautiful specimens of human perfection. Or, to be less verbal about it, UNF. It’s a Monday. Not everything has to be cerebral. Oh, before you shut off your brain entirely, NSFW.

US Women’s Water Polo TeamWater, water everywhere and not a drop to drink.

Diana Taurasi, WNBA Phoenix MercuryIs it weird that I’m wondering if that ball is regulation?

Rachel Yurkovich, JavelinPeople usually mean men when they refer to Greek gods. They’re really missing out.

Jeanette Lee, BilliardsPeople call her “The Black Widow.” I do not have a joke to go along with that because I am totally scared of spiders.

Kim Glass, VolleyballBump and set sound a lot dirtier when looking at this picture.

Esther Vergeer, TennisThis picture explains why they score tennis with “aces” & “love.”

Julia Mancuso, Alpine skiingWinter weather gear is, clearly, a sin.

US Women’s Water PoloGratuitous, in the very best sense of the word.

One tip: Google Kari Traa. She's a freestyler skier and a few years ago it was a lot of fuss about some rather spicy pictures of her in a Norwegian sports magazine.

In the first picture, they all seem to be standing so far apart and saying "don't touch my hoochie". If they just nestled in, they would cover more and feel a lot more comfortable. ;)

Thanks for the Monday eyecandy!

the underwater photo is especially, um, striking. I would think it would be very challenging to get that many people to perfectly cover their bosoms and other bits all in sync. I'm thinking there have to be a lot of outtakes out there. In the name of science, or philanthropy, or something, these outtakes should be made available to you, and by extension, to your blog readers. That's my opinion.

Mmm... Diana Taurasi.

I think I'll put her on the list.

There was something very Esther Williams-y about the underwater one.

This is wonderful. Golly, I sure do love athletes...

And to make you Americans and Euarpoeans jealous, in parts of the world we are currently being inundated with the Commonwealth Games and three channels are all showing athletes, all the time, for two weeks ...

In the background of the underwater pic from the US Women’s Water Polo Team, kudos to that pic by the way, are that turned around crosses? O.o Like in satanic symbol crosses?

Thanks for posting them, I haven't seen all of the set.
I absolutely adore athletic bodies, and I agree that these are absolute perfection!

Yes, we have a body. Why should we hide it?
Aren't we too old to nelieve in this story of speaking snake and have a shame about nudity?

Lame with all the nudity and porn on the internet how they have to do the arm cover thing.
Female athletes look somewhat mannish too.Not saying I dont find them attractive,or that I wouldnt do them,just that they look more mannish,and hiding their girly parts doesnt help them with their mannishness.Just show us the clam and tictacs and be proud to be a woman.

False advertising is evil. How can you call any one of these "naked" when, except for a few butts, all the good parts are obscured?
