Favorite unintentionally homoerotic sports imagery

Prompted by a discovery of an astounding picture I had around, clipped out from an issue of Sports Illustrated from 1993, it says here. The caption for full context:

HOLD ON THERE
Though Iowa won the team title, no wrestler at the NCAA meet was more exuberant than Nebraska's Tony Purler, who celebrated with his coaches after winning the title in the 126-pound division.

Yes, very exuberant indeed.

Nedrick Arthur Raggett, you should be ashamed of yourself! That's nothing but some innocent post-victory rogering, and you want to make it all dirty. The Jeff Goldblum lookalikes of the world stick their tongues out towards your nipples in disgust!

isn't there an anti-yankees website out there somewhere that has compiled a pretty large stock of images of d. jeter and a-rod in compromising, vaguely homoerotic poses? each one had really lousy captions too, if i recall

It really is the tongue with that one I posted right at the start. I mean, all the elements of the photo are just great but the TONGUE.

And what trips me out is that the photo wasn't buried away or anything -- SI usually does a two-page spread for their table of contents, as was the case here, right up at the front of the magazine. What in the world was *that* editorial meeting like?
