Fox Sports analyst Skip Bayless is 71 years old. It is easy to forget that between his bombastic takes and incessant LeBron James criticism.
But the man is no spring chicken.
That said, despite his advancing age, Bayless has the physique of a man half his life experience.
This week he shared a photo to social media (taken by his doting wife, Ernestine), that showed just how ripped he has gotten as of late.

Reactions to Bayless’ crazy jacked body were largely what one would expect from sports fans.
“Last thing LeBron sees before he sleeps at night,” one fan wrote.
“Chill skip we got people here with joint accounts,” another fan joked.
“Skip mate, my wife’s on this app,” a third person chipped in.
“Chill my grandma is on this app,” a fourth fan wrote.
Bayless has no regard for people’s grandmas, though. The man is too busy being the preeminent authority on all things NBA, NFL, MLB, soccer and combat sports.
It is also why Bayless has made his fair share of enemies over the years. His back-and-forth with Los Angeles Lakers guard Russell Westbrook’s wife, Nina, was especially brutal.

Bayless obviously is unlike any sports personality that has ever come before him. And frankly, it’s hard to see someone similar coming along after him either.
The man is cut from a different cloth.
It is clear that 2022 was a massive year for Bayless and his family. Will 2023 be similarly huge for him? An answer one way or the other will emerge soon enough.
