Hmm…I guess it may be true.

I was under the impression the SI brand sold years ago and it’s not the magazine we all fondly remember.


The end of the most popular (I guess) sports magazine there was.

I remember the days when the swimsuit issue coming out was a really big deal.


Me too.

But it wasn’t allowed in our house anyway…

Had to go to a friends house. :joy::joy:

That’s because all of us are old and remember days before the internet. That SI swimsuit issue was a very big deal to young teenagers everywhere. Lol

Could they at least continue it as a coloring book? I mean, its already been a sports pamphlet for years.

When I was a kid, I loved that section in the back of the magazine that had the “Faces in the Crowd” segment.

That was the one I can never erase from memory. Hid in the living room corner behind the big chair and stared in awe.
