ESPN The Magazine gathered 14 of the world’s best athletes to re-create some of the most recognizable album covers ever. Some work better than others, but overall it’s a pretty cool idea for sports magazine.
Alex Morgan, forward for the U.S. Women’s Soccer team, poses as Katy Perry on her “One Of The Boys” cover. They got everything down, even the little pink record player.
My ex-boyfriend, Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, is the floating baby from Nirvana‘s “Nevermind.”
The gorgeous, and fast, runner Allyson Felix does Beyonce‘s first solo album cover, “Dangerously In Love.”
Is that a real baby tiger Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman is caressing as he does MJ‘s “Thriller”?

Lochte and his management team have made no secret of his desire to break into the entertainment industry. After scoring cameos in a few network shows, he spoke about participating in The Bachelor or Dancing With Stars.
I think his own show, with scripts crafted to downplay his weaknesses (insert your own dumb as * joke here) and which will allow HEAVY editing is a smart move for him.
Lochte hails from my current neck of the woods (by all accounts he is exactly as he appears) so I might get a chance for some first hand reporting.
What Would Ryan Lochte Do? (yes, the jokes pretty much write themselves) will premiere in April.
My [Editor’s Note: It’s BRITTANI, bitch! DivaJulia cannot tolerate this doofus] adorable but daft boyfriend Ryan Lochte continued his media blitz by hanging out with Jimmy Fallon on ‘Late Night.’ He seemed a bit more relaxed here than he was on ‘The Tonight Show,’ Jimmy has that affect on people. The two talked about his swim race with Prince Harry, but Ryan wasn’t invited to that naked billiards party up in Harry’s suite. As he told Matt Lauer on ‘Today,’ he “didn’t need that” kind of publicity, although some people blamed Lochte for Harry’s hard partying in Vegas. Everyone knows Harry is literally the red headed step child of the Royals, so he would have played naked pool even if he hadn’t met Ryan for about five minutes.
Jimmy is known for asking his guests to play games, and while I was sure they would play Beer Pong, they opted for Bows and Arrows. Check it out!
