What is “sports cleavage”? It’s pretty self-explanatory, really. Sports cleavage is just regular cleavage, but at sporting events. So we’re talking athletes, fans, cheerleaders, reporters—you name it. Any bosomy display counts.
Why are we doing this list? Well, I could say that sports cleavage grabs our attention more than regular cleavage because we never quite expect to see cleavage at a sporting event. And that would be true. But mostly we’re doing this list because we thought you would look at it. And look at that, here you are.
