So it’s August, and there is absolutely nothing to talk about. I haven’t posted as often as I’d like to be, but I’m in a bit of a “life transition” right now and working a lot.
One good thing about working a lot is all that extra money, and I’ve decided to put some of it to good use. Rich mentioned to me a few days ago that he wanted to buy a Sports Illustrated cover, and after looking at their archives I picked a few out that I’d consider buying myself.
That’s where you come in.
I’m going to show you the ones I like, and let you decide which one I’m going to get. If you want to take a look for yourself and suggest one, by all means. Sometime later today I’ll put up a poll, and whichever one gets the most votes gets put on my credit card.
Here are my picks:
Big Bad Bills, 1991- What a photo that is. I gave my father this one last year, but I wouldn’t mind having one for myself.
Miracle on Ice, 1980- Almost a must have for some. Great picture.
MLB Postseason, 2007- Great photo. This is the last SI I’ve bought, if only for that face.
World Series Red Sox, 2007- I didn’t buy this one, but probably should have. Papelbon leaping in the air was on my desktop for a good six months.
Super Bills- Thurman deserves a spot on my wall somewhere.
Why Hockey is Hot, 1994- Just for the sake of irony, really. It’s just amazing to think of the complete reversal in less than a decade.
So what do you think? I’m well aware that this is a waste of money, so why not influence my waste of money?
