ESPN the Magazine has put together a music issue featuring athletes posing as famous album covers. Here is Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman as Michael Jackson (slightly modified) on the Thriller cover.
The issue also features NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson as Bob Dylan and track and field sprinter Allyson Felix as Beyoncé. You’ve got to give it to ESPN the Magazine for knowing their audience. They took athletes their readers might usually not care about and dressed them up as musicians they probably don’t care about.
Olympic hopeful, William Leer, sported a steesh yesterday at a trial run. No surprise to any of us here, Leer won the race. This of course will always be breaking news for a site like this, but I don’t quit understand why it was reported on the New York Times website.
This gave me an idea that seems great right now, but I’ll regret later this summer. I think I’ll try to post at least one former or current mustached Olympian per day throughout the 2012 Olympic Games. It shouldn’t be that difficult. They had the Olympics in the 70’s and 80’s, right?
