Lindsey Vonn on the Cover of Sports Illustrated… It's Provocative?


I was checking my email on Yahoo when I ran across this story about the ever talented Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. (Article) It appears she made the cover of Sports Illustrated, which only 4% of the covers have featured women over 60 years. This would be an amazing achievement for Lindsey but is suggesting that she is in a “sexualized pose”. Now, I don’t know about you guys, but to me that just seems like a regular old skiers tuck, nothing sexual or suggestive about it. Rather, it does seem to me that is maybe a little biased against Sports Illustrated. I’m not taking sides with either Sports Illustrated or against ( I’m all about supporting women’s athletics),  I’m just saying there is absolutely nothing wrong with that cover shot and everybody should stop steeling Lindsey’s thunder.
