If you haven't already seen the November issue of GQ, you definitely want to pick up a copy. Chad Johnson, the super star wide receiver of the Cincinnati Bengals, is the subject of an extensive profile that veers from analysis, to therapy, to, well, strip show. "I got my sexy back," the star player tells the reporter, "dressed only in a pair of high-tech skintight athletic shots" that "revealed 99 percent of his body."
"While he's still upstairs," writes Nate Penn. "I take the opportunity to review my notes, but in this unlit room I can hardly read them, and I worry if it might convey the wrong impression if I ask a basically naked man to turn on a lamp 'so I can see better.' "
Something tells us that Chad Johnson would not have minded because the article has several more homoerotic passages. Meanwhile, an incredible Sunday for the flamboyant player, who had a career-high 12 catches for 103 yards and three touchdowns to lead Cincinnati past Tennessee, 35-6, and commandeered a television camera after his first TD.
