    I don’t think those are tatoos…I think its ESPN’s way of saying that they think he’s a super swimming robot…they are showing his “robot” interior as they peel his skin away. Very scifi sexy.

    Anything to cover more of him up. He is disturbingly ugly…

  • Snow White

    He looks like a robot to me, agree with #10

  • poindexter
