Yeah I know, there are male athletes featured nude in ESPN Magazine's "The Body Issue" but since I gave you enough to drool over with that Clay Matthews cover a few weeks ago I want to talk about the girls.

I totally feel like Kate Bosworth in Blue Crush when she is asked what she wants in life and she says "I'd like to see a girl on the cover of Surfer Mag...". That pretty much sums it up for me. I am stoked anytime I see a kick ass female athlete on the cover of any sports magazine and this time around TWO women were featured on covers (they did 4 different covers for this issue),  Hope Solo and Gretchen Bleiler. Not too mention all the other rad women featured inside the magazine.

I hope you love the photos of these strong, confident, bad-ass girls as much as I do.
