The Tuesday Torso: Oguchi Onyewu For GQ Magazine

The glasses say, “I’m sensitive enough to discuss Proust…”; the cheese-grater abs say “…from the bedroom.” Images copyright Ben Watts/GQ for use on

Not familiar with USMNT player Oguchi Onyewu? That’s simply unacceptable. As you can see, his abs require immediate and urgent appreciation. Also in need of appreciation: the Milan defender’s willingness to strip off in the name of “art”. Remember this? Someone put this man on a dollar bill, he’s an American hero.

The fantabulous and oh-so-generous lads at GQ US have provided us with a few choice HQ images of Gooch at his best: greased up, fully flexed and with a football. (Without the football, it would just be unladylike for us to gawk so. The sports element makes it entirely appropriate for us to click, zoom and repeat. Or something like that, hard to say, our contact lenses disintegrated when we saw the photos and we now have an mmm-migraine.)

Check out the June issue of GQ for more. But before you race to the newsstand, click here to check out the full slide show and to check out an exclusive Landon Donovan Q&A. FYI, Gooch’s photoshoot took place at the coolbeans MILK Studios in NYC last February.

Side note: With photo shoots like this, it’s obvious that the USA isn’t messing around with their World Cup chances. Everyone knows skin = win. Over to you England.
