SI Swimsuit makes history
Since its launch in 1964, the SI Swimsuit issue has featured 835 models (total guess on my part) from around the globe. But there has never been a second generation SI Swimsuit model. Until today, that is. I am proud to announce that Sailor Brinkley-Cook is officially a SI Swimsuit model, following in the footsteps of her mom, Christie. And yes, Sailor did appear in last year's issue with her sister and mom, but that was a special feature and Sailor wasn't an official SI Swimsuit model. But now she is. Congrats!
Patriots apologize for selling fans tap water
With the temperature in the mid-80s at Foxboro last Sunday, bottled water was very much in demand. So much so, in fact, that the stadium ran out and started selling tap water instead. This did not go over well with fans and the team issued a formal apology.
Jon Lester is no fun
Everyone seemed to enjoy the Addison Russell/spilled nachos incident. Except Jon Lester.
Lovely Lady of the Day
As you can tell from today's lead, it's that time of the year again when we cast models for the upcoming SI Swimsuit Issue. First up is Australian model Nathalie Darcas. I am a fan (click for full-size gallery).
