Over the past few weeks, people all throughout the United States have been bombarded by frigid temperatures, snow and even ice that has left people putting on multiple jackets just to not see icicles grow from their bodies. While this type of weather may have been accepted at first and was a bit of fun for everyone involved, it is now surely beginning to get old and annoying.

People everywhere are a bit tired of the cold to say the least, and many are surely longing for the heat of summertime to come back, not to mention the trips to the beach. And while I do not have the ability to make this happen, I have taken it into my hands to heat up both myself and fellow men with a list of 20 hot female athletes.

Each of the women on the list are exceptionally attractive, and could easily trade in their sporting ventures for a career in the modeling industry. In fact, some work in both areas already. With this in mind, there will surely not be a man in the world who doesn't feel a bit heated after looking at these 20 female athletes, and will momentarily forget just how cold it is outside.

Feel free to provide a bit of feedback and suggestions as to other female athletes that you feel should be included on this list after reading through. Open-ended discussion is always encouraged, and I look forward to hearing from the audience on this topic.

Enjoy!
