ESPN Magazine’s The Body Issue arrived in my mailbox last week. Here are some nice images, with my observations.

I wonder what odds Vegas would have had to lay to get bettors to wager that this issue’s cover would NOT feature Hope Solo. -3000? I still would have taken it. No brainer here.

This issue also included a story by Shaun Assael on the upward trend in athletes using stem cell injection therapy to promote healing. It’s a good read, but wanted to share a photo that was included of a bone marrow extraction. After having this done over a dozen times now, I am frequently asked questions about the process and what the needle looks like. This is a fair representation:
