We interrupt this book blog for breaking eye-candy news!
Needless to say, I don't get terrible excited over the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition... lately it's been more the ESPN Magazine Body Issue which at least half-ish of the time features the guys... tho in the past few years, SI has been doing these couplings with models and male athletes that keep things interesting (for me). Well, again needless to say, the eyes popped when I saw that W&C mascot, Rafael Nadal, was one of this year's participants.
It just cracks me up, because he really does seem shy and modest (and confirmed in his memoir), so I am still a bit surprised -- tho certainly not complaining -- about these modeling gigs, with most of the showing some skin.
Here are the some pix... for the stray hetero man that stumbles onto this, the model is someone named Bar Refaeli ... and once I got around to figuring out someone else was in these photos, have to say she's quite the hottie. Each pic gave info on the swimwear each was wearing (cropped that part out), but on the first pic it cracked me up because you can't even see what Rafa is wearing (again, not complaining... ha!). Enjoy!
