For those of us without a special someone (and for those of us whose special someone doesn't mind if their lover drools over supreme hotness), Valentine's Day just got a whole lot better!
While Bar Refaeli may have lost out on being on the cover of the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue to Kate Upton, she did make a triumphant return to the magazine, posing solo and with sports stars Chris Paul, Michael Phelps, and Rafael Nadal.
Yes, Bar truly is a sports enthusiast. Just look at how much she seems to enjoy the athletes' props. There's her playing with Paul's basketball! And then there's her allowing Nadal to wrap his tennis-racket-holding arms around her!
You might ask, what's Phelps' prop? Check out that skin tight racing suit he's wearing! We're guessing that's probably Bar's favorite of the three.
Enough said. We just going to let the images speak for themselves from her on out. If a picture is worth a thousand words, get ready for a novel's worth of Bar being almost naked! And of athletes looking really awkward next to her!
J-Connection: Bar Refaeli is an Israeli Jew. We think the SI Swimsuit Issue cover should always be decided by a royal rumble mud wrestling match.
