Sweeps Week

Is this sweeps week in triathlon or something? You know, that time when the local TV news and all the TV shows pull out all the raciest stuff to entice us to watch? I think I see a trend:

Runners world has two super hotties on the cover, AND they happen to be mother and daughter.

JuneCover2007
Triathlete Magazine is out with the swimsuit issue and a hottie of its own on the cover.

And to top it all off, Inside Triathlon has a nearly naked picture of uber hottie Desiree Ficker on the cover. (Did I ever mention that I had my picture made while embracing Desiree?)

Well, thankfully, the Triblogger Alliance kept to the pure spirit of triathlon while at Wildflower. There was no unseemly and wanton nakedness or skin in our group.

Carrie and Me
No sireee. Not one bit.

The look on Triboomer's face is so very sad as if to say, "where's my massage???"

And to think that the editors of Triathlete Magazine took heat for a couple of THEIR cover pictures. I can only imagine the messages already being written to Inside Triathlon. Mostly the "I can't believe you sold out and printed this trash" variety. And one or two that say, "What's with the crossed arms."

Ha! At least the photo was cropped. Skin...it's skin and muscle...and I'm licensed...so it doesn't count.

ha! I got that "Triathlete" magazine yesterday and my first reaction was WOAH! But reading it, it wasn't even that scandelous! I was hoping for some stories of hookups in the T2 changing rooms and whatnot. :)

I don't have any moral objections to any of the mags - I just wish they used elites for the swimsuit issue! I mean, it's triathlon for god's sake, it's not like there's a shortage of fit attractive women in the sport! Why do they have to use random "age-groupers" (who are really models/actresses). OK, so one of the models was a pro, but still...

Is it just me or does Desiree Ficker look much more attractive and athletic in the picture with you as opposed to her magazine cover coming out?
