So in perhaps the second most exciting "sporting" event of February (after pitchers and catchers reporting because I don't really believe that the Super Bowl actually takes place in February), the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue has hit the newsstand. And what model graces this years' cover? None other than, would you believe, Beyonce. It is really sad that SI now needs someone famous for something other than looking really good in a swimsuit to sell this issue. I hate to talk about integrity when it comes to the swimsuit issue, but this is just wrong. I could live with having celebrities in the issue, but there was something sacred about this cover. Alas, no more. (I have previously bemoaned SI's use of multiple covers to cater to the different markets. Just another sign of the end of the world as we knew it.)
