ESPN Body Issue – HELLO Omar Gonzalez And Megan Rapinoe!

10 Jul

In keeping with showing my love for the US Men’s National Team, I had to share these stunning photos of Omar Gonzalez. The photos are from ESPN Magazine’s Body Issue.

Gonzalez is not known for being shy about his body. In 2012, after winning the MLS Cup with LA Galaxy, he celebrated by flashing his teammates a full frontal view .

Then last Thanksgiving he placed this gem on Instagram.

Yes, that is Omar playing “Careless Whisper” on the saxophone in nothing but a red Speedo. And we thought Big Flow was amusing…

Previous editions have also featured Oguchi OnyewuNatasha Kai,  Chris Pontius (of DC United not Jackass fame), Bryan Namoff, Clyde Simms,  Tim Howard (and an extra one because holy hotness!), Hope SoloCarlos Bocanegra, Abby Wambach and Sydney Leroux.

And yes each name, except for Pontius and Namoff, is a link to their stunning nude photos. Doing that research did not suck. Seriously, between Bocanegra and Gonzalez I’m about dead.

    Megan Rapinoe shared one of the pics on instagram with the caption, “Thanks @espnmag for letting me get naked for you. Or wait maybe you’re welcome. I don’t know what’s appropriate.” I thought that was funny and awesome.

    So, odd thing I noticed. The Abby Wambach, Carlos Bocanegra, and Sydney Leroux posts also went up on July 10…

      I was like “Huh?” But then I looked and you’re absolutely right – on the same day in 2012 & 2013. Weird!

    If I didn’t live in Denver I’d be a Galaxy fan, but oh well. I can still “appreciate” Omar Gonzalez when the Galaxy play the Rapids. And he didn’t stray too far from home, apparently he grew up in east LA.
