Ladies, if you’ve never picked up an ESPN Magazine before, then here’s your chance. The Body Issue releases this month, and well, it’s the only sports mag that you’ll ever need to peruse (men, it will have you foaming at the mouth just like the SI swimsuit edition).
This release showcases athletes baring it all for the sake of… well, showing off. It has highlighted nude and semi-nude photographs of stars like Dwight Howard, Serena Williams, Hope Solo, and Rob Gronkowski, just to name a select few. This year’s edition offers something a little bit different than your normal (if you consider fit AF, professional athletic bodies with 48 pack abs normal) toned bods, thanks to the mighty Vince Wilfork.
Vince who? Mr. Vince Wilfork. The 325 lb (of pure lusciousness) Pro Bowl nose tackle for the Houston Texans.
Why We Care
Because he’s 325 lbs and naked in a national publication, duh.
And he’s awesome. He has the confidence to showcase his teddy bear body to the world, and in turn, empower both men and women to love themselves just the way they are. Aaaand, cue “don’t look at me…” preach, Christina!
In fact, he has some choice words for all you judgy mcjudgersons out there…
“I don’t care what people think. It all starts with yourself. I believe in myself. I love myself. So it’s kind of like, they can shove it up their you-know-whats.”
Yaaaas boy, yaaaas.
He also has a heart of gold, giving most of his time to his foundation, raising awareness and money for diabetes and its victims (don’t be stingy. Donate HERE).
Pick up the issue, out July 6. Mark your calendar. Admire the bods. Love yourself some Vince Wilfork.
