ESPN Body Issue
ESPN Magazine's "The Body Issue" was released yesterday. All of the athletes look amazing but the most controversal picture is of 5-time MLB All star, Prince Fielder. Take a look here.
ESPN The Magazine released the 2014 edition of "The Body Issue" yesterday. I cannot get over how amazing each athlete looks! Athletes included in this years' issue are Michael Phelps, Amy Purdy, Danyelle Wolf, Venus Williams, Larry Fitzgerald, and many more.
The subject of today's blog is the most controversial pictured athlete, Prince Fielder. He's the 5-time MLB All-star and as revealed in this picture, a naked, much larger athlete than all the others.
He is being ridiculed by a select few people on social media with comments like, "I was going to have a donut for breakfast this morning, but after seeing the picture of Prince Fielder, I decided on a healthier option". Another post said, "I feel sorry for his tattoo artist." And another saying, "It's such a great week for fat people thanks to Prince Fielder's picture."
My personal comments on his picture: I think anyone especially an athlete who is already constantly in the media spotlight, who can pose nude for the cover of a magazine is a hero to us all. I applaud Prince Fielder and think we can all learn from his confidence and ability to embrace the type of body he has. He has NO shame in what his body looks like and is proud of the accomplishments it has helped him achieve.
The biggest of those accomplishments one could say would be making 24 million dollars a year in the MLB!!! WOW!
What do you think of his picture? What are you feelings about other athletes included in this years' issue? What athlete was your favorite picture?
