Shaun White busts off a Rolling Stone cover trick
Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn isn't the only Olympic athlete with a standout cover shot.
American snowboard gold medalist Shaun White is on this week's cover of Rolling Stone magazine, sporting his gold medal and something that appears to be a bottle of lighter fluid. At least, that's what I hope it is.
Still, despite its sexual and pyromaniacal undertones, I think the cover captures White perfectly. He's the self-made king of a snowboarding culture that likes to have a good time. He's just wearing little less than we're used to seeing.
But what do you think? Is the cover as good as a "double McTwist" or is it more like half-pipe face plant?
