Teaser from Matt Harvey’s ESPN The Mag Body Issue shoot is phenomenal (pic)


Oh man. Tweeting, “@Mets @MattHarvey33, ready for his close-up. Retweet if your’e excited to see #ESPNBody 2013 one week from today,” the official Twitter account of ESPN The Magazine¬†posted the above photo of New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey seated in a chair, relaxing in a bathrobe and posing seductively during his photo shoot for the upcoming issue of the magazine’s annual “Body Issue.”

And it’s all sorts of awesome.

Awesome. Harvey is one of many athletes who will pose in the buff for the issue and it sure appears that he’s enjoying the experience. His casual pose seems to say, “I may not pose nude all the time, but I did it a few times in college to make ends meet. I’m not proud of what I did then but I’m alright with what I’m doing now.”

Actually, Matt Harvey looks less like a major league pitcher preparing to shed his clothing to model in semi-provocative poses and more like a porn star chilling in between scenes on a x-rated movie set. Let’s just hope no one involved in the shoot, including Harvey himself, made a request for a fluffer. That wouldn’t be good for anybody.
