Professional soccer players are some of the fittest, most well-built athletes in the world, with a handful of exceptions, of course.
So they've typically got bodies which they're not afraid to show off in front of the world.
Over the years, some of MLS's most prolific goalscoring stars — we're looking to you, Taylor Twellman and Dom Dwyer — opted to drop a size (or three, in your case, Taylor) down in jersey size, in order to further strut their stuff.
Over the weekend, though, there was one man in MLS bold enough to go where no man has gone before. Forget the tight jersey; Benny Feilhaber was rocking the shortest shorts in league history, an unofficial record, of course.
Is there even a game going on tonight? Benny Feilhaber's shorts are stealing the show. #SKCvDC— Reporting KC (@ReportingKC) August 24, 2014
So are we just not going to talk about Feilhaber's shorts? #SKCvDC— Bonnie (@theglibginger) August 24, 2014

Let's hope someone fixes Benny Feilhaber's shorts at the half. #SKCvDC— Sean McPherson (@MrSeanMcP) August 24, 2014
So what's the real story behind Feilhaber's short shorts? Apparently, they're an adidas prototype, and he was guinea pig No. 1:

Maybe that's true. Or, maybe they were simply tucked inside his slider compression shorts. Either way, they showed off a lot of finely toned man leg.
But if you just want to see the shorts — I mean, Feilhaber— in super slow-mo action, then the below GIF was created with you in mind.
