Bruins-Flyers Rivalry The 1970s provided excellent hockey for NHL fans. One of the best rivalries was the Boston Bruins versus the Philadelphia Flyers. The two teams met in the playoffs four times in five seasons. In 1974, the upstart Flyers surprised the favored Bruins in six games to win the Stanley Cup. Two years later, in 1976, Philadelphia beat the Bruins in five games in a semifinal series. A year later Boston avenged the earlier defeats with a four-game sweep in the semis. (The victory was so decisive it got Boston's Brad Park and Gerry Cheevers on the cover of Sports Illustrated on May 9, 1977.) The following year, 1978, Boston again convincingly beat Philadelphia in five games in a semifinal. The 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs featured these two teams meeting in the postseason, a conference semifinal, for the first time since 1978. The Flyers won in seven games after losing the first three.

SI Cover 1980 American Olympic Hockey Team What do you notice about this cover of Sports Illustrated that is highly unusual? It has no caption! Excellent decision by SI's editors. The dramatic story and sheer joy of the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team spoke volumes.

Gibson Girl This is what the ideal of female beauty was from about 1895 to 1915. It was the Gibson Girl look--named after artist Charles Dana Gibson. His drawings often illustrated magazine stories of the era. They were likely the first type of mass media to influence the perception of what feminine beauty is. The stereotypical Gibson Girl was tall, had an extreme hourglass figure, with her hair (preferably curly) piled atop her head in a bouffant, pompadour, or chignon style. This photo is of stage actress Camille Clifford who epitomized the Gibson Girl look.

Mickey Mantle SI Cover This magazine cover looks like it should date from the early 1950s. It's actually a Sports Illustrated cover from August 1995 featuring the recently deceased Mickey Mantle.

George Foreman SI Cover Heavyweight champion George Foreman has been featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated seven times. This was his first time, June 18, 1973, when he was a surly fearsome fighter--not the warm and cuddly George he was during his remarkable comeback years.

Roger Bannister Great Britain's Roger Bannister was the cover subject of this issue of Sports Illustrated. Bannister was being honored as SI's first-ever Sportsman of the Year for famously shattering the four-minute mile in May 1954 with a time of 3:59.4. People tend to forget that Bannister only held the world record for a few weeks. Australia's John Landy whittled the record down to 3:58 flat in June 1954.

Danny Lopez SI Cover 1979 One of my favorite boxers, exciting world featherweight champion Danny (Little Red) Lopez, was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated on February 12, 1979--29 years ago today. In today's repressive, politically correct society, there's no way SI would run that photo and use that caption. It generated no complaints in 1979, though.

Sports Illustrated Cover Jinx Origin Popular folklore says that if an athlete or team appears on the cover of Sports Illustrated, something negative often happens to the subject shortly thereafter. The alleged SI 'cover jinx' began with this November 18, 1957 issue. It proclaimed the University of Oklahoma's football team--a squad that was riding a fantastic 47-game winning streak--was unbeatable. Guess what happened in their next game? Notre Dame scored a late touchdown to upset Oklahoma 28-21.
