Yes, Kate Upton. You're Welcome

Football is gone, but do not fret. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition is out and the ridiculously gorgeous, nineteen-year-old Kate Upton is on the cover.

SI has also continued their tradition of famous female athletes in body paint bikinis as well. Most notably is U.S. women's national soccer team member Alex Morgan.

Side note: If you get the issue on a tablet or smart phone, you'll be able to see 360 view pictures of the bodypainted athletes. LPGA’s Natalie Gulbis and U.S. swimmer and 11-time US Olympic medal winner Natalie Coughlin also get the body paint treatment. You can see a 2D picture of Alex Morgan after the jump. See more of Kate Upton here and more of Alex Morgan in nothing but paint right here.

Yes, I know. The sky is gray outside. The Super Bowl is gone from Indianapolis. In all likelihood, Peyton Manning is gone as well. However, at least you have Kate, Alex, and a couple gallons of body paint to brighten up your Valentine's Day.
