Well, there you have it. It’s Ryan Kesler in the buff. Feast your eyes, you vultures (or gouge them out, whatever you’re into). Seems to me the “I Find This Photo Odd” tag was made for moments such as this. I’m gonna go ahead and add “Ryan Kesler has a mole on his left outer thigh” to the list of things that I wish I did not know.
Though ESPN’s “Body Issue” doesn’t hit newsstands until Friday, Undresler 2 has been making the rounds since Tuesday night, when @RunsOnDuncan tweeted a snapshot of the mag. Then, this morning, ESPN released a gallery of preview images to whet and/or spoil appetites, depending on which image you’re looking at and where your preferences lie. For instance, if you have a tire swing fetish, Helio Castroneves has you covered.
Kesler’s photo concerns me, and not because I’m uncomfortable with what I’m seeing (I am, but only appropriately so). Rather, it concerns me because, once Kesler gets into a habit of doing something in a photo, he tends to do it a lot. Sure, this picture appears to have been taken atop Mount Olympus, but are we sure Kesler’s not going to reprise the pose in more familiar locations? Is naked Keslurking on the horizon?
Is it so far-fetched? We theorized meta-Keslurking last March and it became a reality only six short months later, as Kesler keslurked his own interview, and then a photo of his family that he himself was in. As Kesler continues to innovate, can this be that far behind?
This is what practices could look like in the future, with Kesler suddenly appearing on the ice, sans gear, and striking a sudden pose in front of his teammates. In this one, Daniel Sedin finds it hilarious. Henrik Sedin, on the other hand, is not amused.
And game days could be a nightmare, although it might be useful in training Roberto Luongo to stay focused when there are unwanted bodies in front of him.
