Celebrate! Serena Williams was named Sport Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year! The first individual woman to be so named since 1983! Congratulations!
Is this the Sportsperson of the Year issue or the swimsuit issue? Are those really her thighs or did they Photoshop? Did they really have to oil her up?
The guys don’t get the cheesecake treatment when they are named as Sportsman of the Year. Peyton Manning, Dwayne Wade, Madison Bumgarner were all posed in their uniforms. Even Micheal Phelps, whose work uniform is a dinky-ass Speedo barely showed any skin in his cover.
I’m torn here, I don’t like the fact that Serena was treated as some sort of sex object when they were supposed to be celebrating her athletic achievements, but it is kinda nice to a see a black woman treated as sexy and desirable. What do you all think?
