Hanson Brothers SI Cover A recent tradition at Sports Illustrated has been an annual 'where are they now' issue. In 2007, SI caught up with the Hanson brothers. The threesome gooned their way to hockey immortality in the hilarious 1977 movie Slap Shot starring Paul Newman.

John McEnroe SI Cover 1981 Petulant tennis champ John McEnroe appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated seven times. This cover from July 1981 was after McEnroe won his first of three Wimbledon singles title by dethroning five-time champion Bjorn Borg who had held the title since 1976.

JFK and Jackie on SI Cover From 1960, president-elect John F. Kennedy and wife Jackie grace the cover of Sports Illustrated. SI used to regularly publish fluff stories about the presidents and their families' involvement in sports. As for me, I subscribe to SI to read about real sports stories...

1965 SI Swimsuit Issue Some months ago I posted the cover of the first-ever Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, from 1964. Here's what the 1965 issue looked like. I suspect Sue Peterson would not have a chance of making the cover today. She'd likely be considered plump.

All-Canadian World Series Threat Oh, no! It's the summer of 1983 and Sports Illustrated presents this horrible scenario: The Montreal Expos might win the National League pennant and the Toronto Blue Jays are threatening to win the American League flag. Brace yourselves. This would mean (gasp!) an all-Canadian World Series! We can't have that! (Luckily for xenophobic American baseball fans, neither the Expos or the Jays won the pennant that year. Whew! That's a relief!)

Jimmy Connors 1991 US Open Considered washed up, 39-year-old tennis great Jimmy Connors surprised everone by reaching the semifinals of the U.S. Open in 1991 and made the cover of Sports Illustrated. Formerly disliked by tennis crowds for his bad behavior on court, Connors became a fan favorite late in his career. The fans went bonkers during Connors' unforeseen run at Flushing Meadow. His round-of-16 match versus Aaron Krickstein on Labor Day was an all-time classic. Said one bemused tour veteran, 'Jimmy has always been an ---hole. Now he's America's favorite ---hole.'

2003 Masters Tournament Protest In 2003, the National Organization of Women, led by Martha Burk (pictured here), staged a protest at the Masters Golf Tournament because the host club, Augusta National Golf Club, only accepts male members. Burk got more than she bargained for. Enterprising vendors began selling golf balls with Burk's face on them above the phrase 'The Burk Stops Here!' Augusta's city council passed a law restricting protesters to a vacant lot about a mile from the golf course. Counter-protests began, and they begot more protests. Jesse Jackson supported Burk, so a group of anti-Jackson protesters picketed him. A chapter of the KKK--which turned out to be a one-man outfit--supported Augusta National. Weirdos and attention-seekers of all types flocked to the protest site. One man wore a tuxedo and carried a sign that said, 'Formal Protest.' Another man with an anti-feminist slant carried a placard saying, 'Make My Dinner.' Another group called People Against Ridiculous Protests picketed everybody. Perhaps the most noteworthy and creative protester was a gentlemen who loudly passed gas from the window of a moving minivan when Burk began to speak. Pun-loving Steve Rushin of Sports Illustrated comically referred to the gesture as a 'drive-by tooting.'
