Tomorrow, ESPN The Magazine's 2011 Body Issue hits newsstands, but ESPN has already released some of the pictures from the issue. If you aren't familiar with this particular issue, it features star athletes posing in the nude with their private parts strategically covered. The athletes featured in this year's "Bodies We Want" section includes St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson. Steven said that he was a little anxious and a little nervous and wanted to represent this in a way that his Mom wouldn't fall out of her seat when she sees it. Steven admitted that he was not in the best shape that he has been in and not the best shape that he will be in (wow), because he was fresh of a 2 week vacation in Italy at the time of the shoot (he couldn't resist the pasta). Steven said that on Sunday's he turns into a whole other guy; not the guy who was posing for the cameras.
