It’s not fair. Most athletes already make a crap-load of money for playing games or P.E activities. On top of that, they gotta be hot too? Where’s our meal ticket?
Well, the bright side is that we get to look at them. So we’ve got that going for us.
Which is nice.
We’ve compiled a list of athletes who should either start a second career now or start planning for their post-athletic life. Here are the arbitrary requirements to make it on the list:
- Be attractive to the eyes
5. Jessica Landstrom

Well, she’s Swedish, and knows a thing or two about mechanical engineering. Not to mention we’ve yet to see a soccer player whose abs we wouldn’t mind stealing. Just for a day. Please?
4. Lindsey Vonn

A Gold-medal for Downhill skiing. Check. Arguably the most successful downhill skier of all time. Check. Long blonde hair and nice body. Check. Those skiing outfits leave little to the imagination. And that’s the way we like it.
3. Misty May-Treanor

Despite injuries and having to bow out of Dancing with the Stars, she’s not officially retired, so she still counts. She’s got the kick-butt volleyball body that will most likely kick your butt, and she’ll look sweet and innocent while doing it. That’s a deadly bump-set-spike combo.
2. Allyson Felix

Gold medalist and two-time silver medalist in 2008, she’s also a member of President Obama’s Council for Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition. And except or those nut-jobs that run marathons, runners usually have a pretty attractive physique. Yup, she’s got that too.
1. Alex Morgan

She’s only 22 and already an elite soccer player as the #1 overall pick in the 2011 WPS draft. Watch out London you got a looker coming your way this summer – better keep your eye on the ball.
What do you think? Know of other athletes that are just as hot? We’d love to know about them.
