Michael Strahan might be known as one of the busiest working men on television these days but you can now add sexiest (in some quarters) to that list too. The former New York Giants defensive end has been showing a lot of his metro side since getting the co-hosting gig on "Live with Kelly and Michael" but yesterday he revealed a lot more when he stripped down to nothing but a velvet curtain and construction boots for this week's "Sexiest Man Alive" issue of People magazine. Actor Channing Tatum was crowned this year's sexiest man for his role as a male stripper in the film, "Magic Mike" but in the magazine centerfold it will be Strahan doing all of the grinding. In keeping with the theme of the film, a video of the photo shoot  —where Strahan is transformed "from a co-host to a male stripper" dressed as a construction worker — was shown on his morning talk show.  The gap-toothed "NFL on FOX" host looked pretty comfortable stripping down for the female crowd.  Co-host Kelly Ripa sure seemed overly titillated when she expressed her excitement (even for her) to see what was behind the curtain. The issue will be on newsstands Friday Nov. 16. Some other tidbits that the Giants all-time sack leader will share with readers had to do with his personal hygiene. "I get manicures, pedicures, facials, massages.  I do it all.  No shame in my game," he said.  "But I won't get waxed — that looks like it hurts."
