Happy National Dog Day

Happy National Dog Day. If anything in the world is worth celebrating, it's our four-legged friends. Who else will take a nap next to you after a long day of work? In celebration of my dog Larry and dogs everywhere, below is a gallery of dogs invading the soccer pitch. 

Come to Coney Island on Sunday

The Sports Illustrated Summer of Swim Fan Festival, a free event where fans can meet models, play carnival games, eat great food and more, takes place Sunday in Coney Island. Afterwards, Action Bronson will perform at the new Coney Island Amphitheater (buy your tickets now!). So if you're in the NYC area and looking for something fun to do on Sunday, come to the festival and say hey. Or at the very least, follow SI Swimsuit on FacebookInstagram and Snapchat for live updates throughout the day.

This Man is Insane

Over the next 18 to 24 months, I intend to move into a new apartment, maybe take a cooking class and write about 300 editions of Hot Clicks. In that same time, 45-year-old Bill Sycalik plans to run 1,545.8 miles across 29 states as part of his National Parks Marathon Project. My plan sounds much easier.

Alexina Graham: P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

Alexina Graham stopped by the office for a 2017 SI Swimsuit Casting and if there's one thing you need on a Friday afternoon, it's a fiery British redhead. She is today's LLOD (click for full-size gallery).
