Sports Illustrated is out with its annual swimsuit issue, which I call the most boring sports issue of the year for a gay sports fan.
As counter-programming, we present our version, complete with real athletes and not models. The criteria is that the athletes have to be in a swimsuit, shorts or something like that. This rules out pretty much any athlete from a mainstream team sport, but if you happen to see J.J. Watt, Reggie Bush or anyone similar in a swimsuit, let us know ASAP.
