Colin Kaepernick photographed by Richard Phibbs for ESPN the Magazine
ESPN the Magazine has once again made summer an even hotter season, with the release of its 2013 Body Issue. So many ripped, nude athletes with strategically placed sports equipment, so little lubricant!
This year’s magazine features the amazing thighs of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick (above) and the glorious aerial form of Denver Nugget Kenneth Faried, among many others, including 77-year-old golfer Gary Player (!). The issue hits newsstands — and no doubt many nightstands — on Friday.
We’ve taken on the hard task of poring over the issue to find our favorite jocks — as well as mentally cut out those pesky females — to make it a bit easier for you to dive right in. Enjoy these videos of some of hottest photo shoots. Go ahead — as the mag rightly states, “It’s okay to stare.”
So Derek Jeter apparently sends his one-night stands home with gift bags of signed memorabilia (“usually a baseball”).
Is there a problem with that? I’ve been close enough to the gorgeous Yankees stud to exchange pleasantries (sigh, no, still not a euphemism) and I can tell you after getting lost in his penetrating eyes I wouldn’t need an autographed ball to feel great about myself after a special night with Captain Clutch.
But shhhhh! Don’t tell him that. ‘Cause I really, really want a ball too.
And in case you also require a memento, the Frisky answers the burning question “What’s In a One-Night Stand Gift Bag?“
I know that when I say “sexy Texas Ranger,” your mind goes to one place — but since today’s the first day of the 2011 MLB World Series, let’s take it to baseball!

Baseball star (and Rihanna ex) Matt Kemp gets soaking wet for Flaunt magazine. Interview and more sexy pics at Flaunt.
A big old get well shout-out to standout San Francisco Giants catcher — and Swoonworthy favorite — Buster Posey, who fractured his leg last night and is likely to miss the rest of the season. Get well soon!
Any guesses on what that is in his mouth in this picture? (Keep it clean, kids!)
Admission: While we were compiling our 2010 World Series Watch, we kept lingering on photos of Tim Lincecum, the 26-year-old San Francisco Giants phenom nicknamed “The Freak.” Maybe we have a thing for Joseph Gordon-Levitt or the kid from “Dazed and Confused”, or maybe we just like guys who can throw 93 mph fastballs. Whichever, the Giants like Lincecum, too, handing him the ball — vs. certifiable Texas Ranger hottie Cliff Lee — for tonight’s possible Series clincher (airing at 7:30pm ET on Fox).
