Sports Illustrated to Change Name to "Boston Illustrated"

I remember back in the late 80s, when I was in high school, Los Angeles was the place to be and Boston was hated. Oh, so hated. Luckily, we had the Lakers and the Dodgers and it didn't really matter that the Celtics were rivals, since the Lakers usually prevailed.

Now that Boston has had an abundance of sporting riches on its hands, it has turned the last three issues of Sports Illustrated into nothing more than a Boston propaganda machine:

  • November 5, 2007: Red Sox win the World Series. Red Sock Jonathan Papelbon jumps for joy with his hand on his head like he's doing a funky square dance move.
  • October 29, 2007: Celtics lead the NBA preview, with Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen looking smug.
  • October 22, 2007: Tom Brady has the New England Patriots undefeated.

This is not to mention Papelbon kicking off the baseball playoffs with a cover on October 1, 2007. Maybe the New England Revolution will get the November 12 cover, after winning the first round of the MLS playoffs? At least Boston College lost this weekend, I suppose.

Now just watch as "chowdaheadz" takes over the google adsense ads on this page. Is there no end to the madness?

Sorry for yet another photoshop hackjob. Actually, no I'm not.
