bill-swift - July 6, 2015
Through the last couple of years while we've been featuring the coming of age of former women's Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney, I've been getting so many letters from many of you telling me the real prize to ogle was Aly Raisman. My response was always the same. Beautiful girl, but she simply did not show off nearly as much as McKayla who is a constant exhibitionist on social media. Well, welcome to the world of Aly Raisman taking it all off for ESPN The Body Issue.
(**Breaking News** you must read the hilarious new Lex Jurgen satire, Man Rules, on Amazon. Millennial man-kind stands in the balance!)
Naturally, ESPN can't or won't show the very funnest of lady parts. There's really no particular principled reason for them to show you mostly nekkid girls in the first place other than a blatant attempt to jack up magazine sales, which we can hardly criticize given we are the beneficiaries. The annual Body Issue isn't quite SI's Swimsuit level goodness, most especially because they insist on showing tons of bare dudes as well, but this is a wonderful start to a July tradition. Point Aly Raisman. McKayla Maroney, you're up. Enjoy.
