Naya Rivera :: Getty ImagesThere are a few things that may surprise you about the SI.com office. For example, we talk way more about TV than sports. This was the case late Friday afternoon, when a group of co-workers were discussing the best looking women on Mad Men. (My colleague, and SI.com's NFL editor, Tom Mantzouranis is a big fan of January Jones.) I inserted myself into the conversation and then it became a discussion about the best looking women on TV. I made the statement that Glee's Naya Rivera is the most underrated woman on TV. My colleague, and SI.com's college football editor, Mallory Rubin agreed, which obviously means I was right since Mallory is a female. The point of telling you all this is so that I can link to this gallery of Rivera.
