The ESPN Body Issue officially dropped today, featuring Abby Wambach and Carlos Bocanegra in their 50 Cent “We gonna party like it’s your birthday” suits. One photo you won’t find in the mag though, is the extra one above (mainly because we produced it ourselves) featuring Carlos and Mario Balotelli in their A-Team outfits.

I pity the fool who doesn’t enjoy this!

ESPN announced the fourth edition of its body issue today, a special pictorial where athletes basically get naked. I think we can all agree that no one in the history of the issue has appeared better in their birthday suit than Hope did a year ago. I thought it’d be a no-brainer to invite the reigning champion back and give her a chance to defend the title, but no go.

Sorry fellas, Hope Solo will not be getting naked this year. But you know who will?

Carlos Bocanegra and Abby Wambach, the two soccer representatives in this year’s mag which will hit newsstands on July 13. Pose well guys, you have big shoes (not) to fill.
