Price Fielder poses nude for ESPN the magazine

Twenty-two athletes will be featured in the ESPN The Magazine Body Issue, which will hit newsstands on July 11.

The keystone to the issue is the “Bodies We Want” section, where athletes will be featured in tasteful nude poses.


“Insert punch line”

I read the headline....and I still clicked the link? Why? (for the record there is no picture in the link, it's just an article about it, but still, I don't know why I clicked the link...)

I read the headline and thought "I don't know this Price character, but thank god it isn't Prince Fielder."

If a "Body Issue" is going to be anything more than soft porn, you probably want to include a wider range of body types.

I've always liked the Body issue, my only nitpick is that the women tend to be put in softcore/cheesecake poses much more often than the men. Not to say that the men aren't sometimes, or that the women always are, and it's been getting better on that front.
   13. Never Give an Inge (Dave) Posted: June 25, 2014 at 08:39 PM (#4735823)

And jokes aside, this is actually an interesting choice by ESPN, along the lines of what #6 said.
   14. Davo Dozier Posted: June 25, 2014 at 08:45 PM (#4735827)
Good for ESPN, good for Prince. Kudos all around.

Yup.

They can't even do porn right.

Prince is a huggable Taurus who enjoys getting sweaty in the Texas heat during a game, or merely by walking up two or more stairs. When it comes to making love, his motto is the same as for his baserunning: take it extra slow. His turn-offs include cardiograms, Father's Day, and insufficient load limits on bridges.

Outstanding, Gonfalon.

Fielder posing nude reminds me of this famous exchange.

Fat Man on the Subway: "I'm not ashamed of my body."

Jerry Seinfeld: "You see, that's the problem. You should be."

OK, it's not a pictorial, but I like to frighten people for a few seconds.

Let it be known now ... I will personally hunt down and kill the first person who deceptively links to Fielder nude ... Albright's bad enough.

I would rather see a photo of Prince and Madeline engaged in sweet coital pursuits than the image linked by Yankee Clapper. Dear god that was horrifying.

I felt a duty to warn my fellow Primates, so they would be prepared if they encountered such on their next trip outside the basement. No need to thank me.

I for one laughed harder at clapper's link than GB's prose. not that GB wasn't brilliant.

When I saw the headline, I was hoping Price was Prince's hot wife or sister. Alas, no.

I'm pretty sure the Geneva Convention prohibits this sort of thing.

How do I remove this McDonald's ad that is blocking part of the page?

Upon seeing the McDonald's ad, my first response was, isn't this great, BBTF has made it big time. OTOH, my subsequent response was pretty much identical to Dave's in #11.

I've always liked the Body issue, my only nitpick is that the women tend to be put in softcore/cheesecake poses much more often than the men.

Prince only agreed to do this because he heard "cheesecake poses" and misunderstood.

My first response was actually to be amused that the ad server would pair a McDonald's ad with an article about Prince Fielder.

You might be amused by the connection, but Fielder is purple with rage.
   45. base ball chick Posted: June 27, 2014 at 10:30 AM (#4737327)
the problem with this world is that there are too **** many almost nekkid females pics and not enough "tastefully posed" nekkid males. us females like to unwrap, uh, the final piece of the puzzle, you feelin me here - not get icked out by stuff just, just - out there, really out there, tubular or not

Yew Peeple are ****ing lucky so many of us females love all KINDS of youse and don't INSIST that all yall look just like grady sizemore. who will hopefully be in this issue too, not that i don't appreciate the pic of him wearing a coffee mug. or bradley awesomeness wearing a surfboard

i personally am looking forward to checking out Da Prince. mah own man is cuddly too. as i KNOW a whole lot of youse are too - ain't real too many look like matt harvey around here. with our without tray

oh yeah

   52. base ball chick Posted: June 27, 2014 at 03:15 PM (#4737520)
sigh
it is NOT TMI

youse guys are so prejudice against men

it is really sad that so many of you object to the sexual objectification of males, which is what has been done to us females for a bazillion years. i personally am looking forward to our Ad People Overlords draping HOTTTTTTT guys all over cars. and having HOTTTTTT guys in boxer briefs holding chainsaws right near their youknowwhat and wearing nothing but a smile

and if i COULD get wood i WOULD get wood, you know what i'm saying

I was reading this thread and just getting more and more annoyed until I got to BBC.

Were you really expecting anything else? I mean, you can't be all that surprised to learn that there's a great deal of homophobia and misogyny present in an online sports discussion group, right?

Making fun of a fat guy posing nude (which is 90% of this thread) is homophobic and misogynistic now? Lighten up.

- i remember a song from my childhood - things can only get better!!!

but really, they haven't. and guys right here on this site who are supposed to be all about agreeing that female human beings are supposed to be equals, blahblahblah still use words that mean female and/or female parts to describe other males they disrespect.

i should know better by now. i'm getting too damm old to be like charlie breown with lucy and the football, always thinking that things will get better, a change is gonna come (meaning better)

reality really DOES bite


snapper,
i remember all kinds of negative comments about men posing in last year's edition - and none of THOSE guys were fat. and for all we know, when the pics were taken, prince was not actually FAT

I don't recall that thread, if I saw it. I'm simply saying, the jokes here are almost exclusively about Prince being fat and posing nude.

I've got no problem if men want to pose half naked, and women want to look at them. But, if a fat guy does that, it's funny.

And I will gladly stipulate I am a good 20 lbs overweight, and out of shape. But, you ain't gonna catch me naked anywhere outside my house or my Dr's office.
   59. The Chronicles of Reddick Posted: June 27, 2014 at 05:26 PM (#4737645)
So does this mean the earlier pictures with the men in the banana hammocks are ok?
   60. Gonfalon Bubble Posted: June 27, 2014 at 05:28 PM (#4737646)
Making fun of a fat guy posing nude (which is 90% of this thread) is homophobic and misogynistic now?

All I've been saying is that if Prince Fielder wants to take off his shirt outside, there are breastfeeding stations for that kind of thing.

. . . and guys right here on this site who are supposed to be all about agreeing that female human beings are supposed to be equals, blahblahblah still use words that mean female and/or female parts to describe other males they disrespect.

To be fair, from my observation, about 90% of that is from Sam H. No need to tar everyone for his misogyny.
