ESPN Recreates Nirvana’s Nevermind Album Cover with Ryan Lochte

Posted on February 5, 2013 by

ESPN went the musical route for the famed sports outlet’s magazine version this month. But to keep in touch with their roots, they decided to recreate famous album covers with some famous athletes. Soccer player Alex Morgan sits pretty as Katy Perry, sprinter Allyson Felix gets bootylicious as Beyoncé and Ryan Lochte is the baby from Nirvana’s Nevermind album.

Yes, you read that right and yes, Nirvana and Ryan Lochte were i the same sentence.

Here’s his ESPN photo:


and here’s the original:

Thankfully, and unlike his baby counterpart, Lochte did not drop trou for the occasion but he did managed to get a pretty spot on baby expression. Actually, who are we kidding? Lochte only has two facial expressions: utter confusion and stupid confidence. No wonder he nails it.

    Since this was the first post-Rebekah episode, it made sense to me that it would be more of a transitionary episode, and it was. Lots of table-setting here, and I think it’s for the good that they change things up so boldly to help keep this show from getting stale like The Vampire Diaries did.

    On a side note, I also loved this episode’s music, especially when they used Son Lux and Lorde’s collaboration “Easy (Switch Screens)” (during during Elijah’s party when the fight between the Vampires and Werewolves breaks out) and “Line of Fire” by Junip (when the peace accord is signed between the werewolves, vampires, witches and humans.)
