For the Guys...

Yes, it's that time of year again. It is always around February 14th that guys are not only looking forward to Valentine's Day but they are also looking forward to the release of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue! This year's cover features model Bar Refaeli!


From MSNBC.com:
"Sports Illustrated is as secretive as it is successful with its blockbuster swimsuit issue, so Bar Refaeli found out she's cover girl of the magazine's 46th annual ode to the barely-there bikini just hours before the magazine hit the newsstands today.

Refaeli is no stranger to Americans — she's been one of the most in-demand models since age 15, and she frequently graces the pages of celebrity magazines by virtue of her three-year relationship with actor Leonardo DiCaprio. But for a model, gracing the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue is truly hitting the career jackpot.

The swimsuit issue is typically seen by 66 million readers — including four in 10 adult men in the U.S., according to Sports Illustrated research — making it the biggest annual event in magazine publishing. Moreover, becoming the S.I. cover girl launched the careers of Tyra Banks, Rebecca Romijn, Cheryl Tiegs, Cindy Crawford and Heidi Klum into the stratosphere."

I changed the post because I had felt uncomfortable with it since its creation. I just kinda felt that I was pushing the educational purpose of this blog too far and after seeing it next to the new post it just looked ridiculous. So, instead of deleting it altogether I left all the text and links and left one image. I think that's fair.
