Vancouver Canucks Ryan Kesler to Pose Nude in ESPN the Magazine

Third Annual “Body Issue” will feature professional athletes posing nude

In case you weren’t already feeling guilty about the turkey-coma you’re going to happily put yourself in this fall, get a load of this.

The beloved, beautiful part-time underwear model and full-time Canuck Ryan Kesler is stripping down for this year’s Body Issue of ESPN The Magazine.

Along with 20 other athletes, Kesler will appear naked in the “Bodies We Want” (but can’t have) section of the issue, coming out on Friday, October 7th – just in time for stuffing, mashed potatoes and a whole lot of overeating, also known as Canadian Thanksgiving.

Don’t get too excited ladies – Kesler’s parts will be strategically covered.

Kelser was on Global News in downtown Vancouver this morning  promoting  Raise-a-Reader Day, and the bashful guy didn’t comment on ESPN’s announcement, saying he’s focusing on the reader event.
