Advisory: The above gallery contains pictures of very, very naked people. No naughty bits, but just so much artful nudity it's almost ridiculous.
It's here! ESPN's "The Body Issue" is an annual event that really drives home two important facts of life: (1.) Athletes' bodies are truly works of art, and (2.) We, collectively, are not in shape. We may have thought we were, but we're not. Ever.
What's great about "The Body Issue," though, is its commitment to highlighting so many different types of bodies; all shapes, sizes, colors and abilities are represented. Since 2009, the special issue has featured dozens of these human sculptures in various states of sweatiness and undress. The photos have captured Olympians, champions, upstarts and legends from every sport imaginable. Above, some of our favorite covers. Now if you'll excuse us, we have to go, uh, run around and lift stuff.
