Obviously, there are a lot of things for which we all should be very thankful—things like freedom, family, 21st century medicine, the internet, football, and beer.
However, way, way up at the top of the list, right in between combination Pizza Hut-Taco Bells and the iPhone 5S, there’s this: attractive female athletes. Not only does their talent and hard work provide us with high-quality entertainment and inspiration to make the most of what we’re handed in life; their good looks provide a diversion from all the stories about athletes murdering people, bullying teammates with racial slurs, or just being major douchebags.
Is it bad to recognize the obvious fact that some female athletes are really good-looking? Nah. One of the side effects of exercising for a living is being hot. Why pretend like we don’t care? Besides, it works both ways. Ask any female NFL fan who the hottest player in the league is and I guarantee she won’t have to think too hard before answering because she’s already thought about it.
So this Thanksgiving, let’s all take a moment to give thanks for these women, starting with the ones you see here. We owe them BIG time.
