Prince Fielder ‘Body Issue’ Photoshops are here because the Internet (photos)
It’s hardly surprising given that he landed on the cover — not to mention his unique, unconventional body type — that Texas Rangers slugger Prince Fielder is the unquestioned superstar to emerge from the 2014 edition of ESPN The Magazine’s annual “Body Issue.”
The Internet — as it is wont to do (writing as if the Internet is some kind of self-aware entity – wait, is it?) see here and here and here and here — had a veritable field day with the image of the robustly figured Fielder posing nude. And that of course means a heaping helping of humorous Photoshops.
To wit, along with the brilliant interpretation of Michelangelo’s “The Creation of Adam”:

And the best part? This is merely scratching the surface. There are many, many more out there. Seek and ye shall find.
