    Sasha Cohen not on cover of Sport's Illustrated

    I was hoping she would get the cover since she won Silver. She did make the inside of the magazine, though.

    People actually won gold medals so of course Sasha isn't on the cover. Any way I wouldn't want her on the cover this close to worlds

    The "jinx" of being on the Sports Illustrated cover is rather infamous. MK was on the cover (I think) before Nagano, and she was lucky -- she only lost. Athletes have been on the cover and either the athlete or a family member has gotten sick or seriously hurt.

    I would've like it had Shiz made the cover, but since she is non-American I wasn't counting on it. SI tnds to focus on American sportsmen.

    yeah...couldn't it only be a good thing she's not on the cover? Besides, she doesn't deserve to be on the cover, anyway. It's only for OGM winners.

    It's an American magazine, so makes sense, no?

    Sports Illustrated is only for Olympic gold medallists???

    So who is on the cover, the North Carolina men's basketball team that just knocked off the number one Duke Blue Devils?

    ah, you know what I mean. As far as OLYMPIC SPORTS go, only OGMs go on the cover, ok?

    Will she make the Bathing Suit issue? That's the biggie for models.

    SI used to cover a large variety of sports on a regular basis, including figure skating. Now they focus mainly on baseball, basketball and football.

    They used to have a large supplemental Olympic issue but they don't do that anymore.

    They should put Shizuka on the cover. Most SI readers would think it was Michelle Kwan.
