Sports Illustrated: Footy WAGs in Body Paint
Men across the universe were up early today eagerly waiting for the postman to arrive with the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 2010. Oh, who are we kidding: no one gets mail anymore, the testosterone-filled masses have probably been hitting refresh on SI.com since 23.59 last night.
Why is this news for us? As reported a little while ago, the magazine is featuring footy gals for the first time. They’ve done a body-painting special with England’s Abigail Clancy (Crouchie), Germany’s Sarah Brandner (Schweini), American Bethaney Dempsey (Clint Dempsey) and Italy’s Melissa Satta.
Hang on. Bobo’s gal got this gig?
We’re not trying to take away from Melissa Satta’s moment here, and she does look smashing in the SI shoot, but just to comment on the obvious: this was the magazine’s choice for a bikini-ready Italian WAG? For a start, Christian Vieri doesn’t even play anymore, and there is a massive selection of sexy Italian WAGs ready, willing and able to pose in their skivvies. They’re practically doing so every week anyway.
Top marks to Sarah, Bethany and of course Abigail looks a stunner, but not as relaxed-sexy as we’ve seen her in other shoots.
Have a gander at the gallery and tell us which WAG you think looks the best. Our grumbling vote goes to Melissa; she stands out a mile in these shots.
