Somebody at SI is a Miracle Worker

Danica Patrick doesn't look horrible.

Patrick recently shed her racing suit for a bathing suit for the annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. And surprisingly, it's not as horrible as you would think.

Patrick has traditionally looked about as sexy as a quarter of Quaker State in some of her famous photo shoots. Go Daddy and even Playboy couldn't get rid of that vapid stare that she normally has in her "sexy" photos. Patrick typically looks about as uncomfortable as Matt Leinart in a father-of-the-year contest in most photos. But photographer Ben Watts actually put some life into Danica's eyes and that is not an easy thing to do.

Now, you tend to get a lot of people bashing the SI issue because other magazines such as Stuff and Maxim publish this monthly. But those rags look like the underwear section of the Montgomery Ward catalog compared to what SI normally puts out. Even Playboy's recent photography can't seem to match what SI is putting out with the swimsuit edition.

Sports Illustrated is still the best at this sort of thing and almost makes up for the fact they still keep Peter King employed.

I'm surprised they didn't have Peter King's face on a little sidebar on the top of the cover advertising an article on why Brett Favre will win it all next year....

I'm still waiting for my issue to arrive - is Clemens' wife featured again?

She's a man. A man with small, pathetic breasts. The kind that, when seen naked, you know that they are about as much fun to play with as a deflated basketball. The kind that flop around like the loose under-arm skin of old women. The kind that look like a ziplock bag half filled with depressing curdled milk and bugs.

You know, it's been bugging me all day. Something was wrong with that picture (aside from the fact that Ms. Patrick is extremely mannish) but I couldn't quite put my finger on it until it just now. Danica has an ass like Station from Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey.

I'm with you guys normally. And maybe it's lowered expectations when it comes to Danica. But she's not horrible in those pics, and I'll stand by it.

And Diane, Mrs. Clemens was not in the magazine because she tested positive for HGH.
