Shark Life: Suns Out, Buns Out

Joe Thornton and Brent Burns bare it all in upcoming ESPN Body magazine

by Casey Krygier /

It was announced this weekend that the bearded beauties of the San Jose Sharks, Brent Burns and Joe Thornton, will appear in the latest edition of ESPN The Magazine's annual Body Issue.

As most of us know, Joe Thornton enjoys the freedom of baring it all, as he often wears just a towel in postgame interviews with the media (because he has to wear something). On the other hand, Brent Burns takes his fashion to heart and is usually seen dressed to the nines. 

In the teasers released on Sunday by ESPN, it looks like both guys had no problem risking it all....except the beards of course!

Tweet from @SanJoseSharks: Coming soon to ESPN's Body Issue: the Beards will bare it all.

Tweet from @SanJoseSharks: "I think I have good abs underneath. You just can't see them." - @Burnzie88

Former teammate, Jason Demers, chimed into the Twitter chatter and dropped some knowledge on us.
