Media Notebook 7-16-12: USA Volleyball, Nellie Spicer, ESPN Body Issue, Maria Sharapova

ESPN the magazine recently published its body issue, and with it a couple nude photos of the U.S.A. Women’s Olympic Volleyball team. Local product Nellie Spicer stood out! The former UCLA Bruin comes from a very large family in Barrington, Illinois, a very wealthy northwest suburb of Chicago.

Her sister Betsy Spicer was a big ten star in the same sport for the Illini in the late ’90s. For more pics of Nellie Spicer go here. For the Volleyball team nude photos go here.
