ESPN The Mag’s ‘Year In Sports’ Cover Is Certainly Provocative, But Not In A Good Way (Pic)

Oh dear. And by “certainly provocative,” I of course mean putting a young boy in a Penn State-esque uniform and surround him in a protective enclosure constructed via a couple of posts and some chicken wire and then adding the words “HANDS OFF” in bold, block lettering was an interesting choice.

Whatever you think of the cover, there is no arguing that some, um, interesting choices were made when deciding upon the imagery the ad wizards who came up with this one chose to employ.

And just in case you would like the cover of ESPN The Magazine‘s “Year In Sports” issue prominently displayed on your coffee table this holiday season, the issue hits newsstands Friday.
