Lindsey Vonn swimsuit photos: more controversy?
At Ski Magazine's SKI Blog, they surfed over to SI.com to investigated the obvious question after Lindsey Vonn appeared in Sports Illustrated's annual swimsuit issue: Is it inappropriate, demeaning or worse for a female athlete to pose in a skimpy bikini?
We followed the link--strictly out of professional diligence, mind you. Controversy exploded in the office. "Inappropriate," the women said. "She's demeaning herself. She's a world-class athlete and she shouldn't have to resort to sex-kitten photos."
"Oh, sure," the guys countered. "And when it's Nomar Garciapara or Lebron James all oiled up and shirtless, you don't have a problem with that!"
