ESPN The Magazine gathered 14 of the world's best athletes to re-create some of the most recognizable album covers ever. Some work better than others, but overall it's a pretty cool idea for sports magazine.
Alex Morgan, forward for the U.S. Women's Soccer team, poses as Katy Perry on her "One Of The Boys" cover. They got everything down, even the little pink record player.
My ex-boyfriend, Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, is the floating baby from Nirvana's "Nevermind."
The gorgeous, and fast, runner Allyson Felix does Beyonce's first solo album cover, "Dangerously In Love."
Is that a real baby tiger Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman is caressing as he does MJ's "Thriller"?

In an attempt to stretch Olympic fame, swimming gold medalist Ryan Lochte is shooting a reality show for the E! network.
According to Gossip Cop it will follow every aspect of his life, from training for the 2016 Olympic Games to his search for Mrs. Right.
Lochte and his management team have made no secret of his desire to break into the entertainment industry. After scoring cameos in a few network shows, he spoke about participating in The Bachelor or Dancing With Stars.
I think his own show, with scripts crafted to downplay his weaknesses (insert your own dumb as * joke here) and which will allow HEAVY editing is a smart move for him.
Lochte hails from my current neck of the woods (by all accounts he is exactly as he appears) so I might get a chance for some first hand reporting.
What Would Ryan Lochte Do? (yes, the jokes pretty much write themselves) will premiere in April.

My [Editor's Note: It's BRITTANI, bitch! DivaJulia cannot tolerate this doofus] adorable but daft boyfriend Ryan Lochte continued his media blitz by hanging out with Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night.' He seemed a bit more relaxed here than he was on 'The Tonight Show,' Jimmy has that affect on people. The two talked about his swim race with Prince Harry, but Ryan wasn't invited to that naked billiards party up in Harry's suite. As he told Matt Lauer on 'Today,' he "didn't need that" kind of publicity, although some people blamed Lochte for Harry's hard partying in Vegas. Everyone knows Harry is literally the red headed step child of the Royals, so he would have played naked pool even if he hadn't met Ryan for about five minutes.
Jimmy is known for asking his guests to play games, and while I was sure they would play Beer Pong, they opted for Bows and Arrows. Check it out!
Bonus RyRy with a cute, rescued puppy!
One of my many Olympic boyfriends made his first late night television appearance on 'The Tonight Show,' even donning a pair of Speedo shorts with the show's logo on the back during the opening bit.
It was hard to ignore Kristen Bell, who is engaged to actor Dax Shepard by the way, and her obvious thirstiness, but I have to say RyRy did a pretty good job here, mostly because all he had to do was talk about himself. He discussed his grueling workouts and the possibility of him doing 'Dancing With The Stars.' He got an A in a dance class, bless him.
Ryan's first acting roll with be on an episode of '90210' which he shot this week while he was in L.A. I pretty much gave up on the CW so I won't be watching, but I'm sure he'll be fine. All he has to do is stand there shirtless and look hot. He's so good at that.
[Ed.Note: DivaJulia saw
that big ol' Jethro doofus Ryan chatting about how hard it was on the set of 90210 because he had to "remember, like words and to remember to move and stuff". Let's just say Brittani ~ the girl who wants RyRy, digs him a whole lot more than DivaJulia does....oh, HEY, Jason Richardson, Track and Field Gold Medalist!]
