I remain consistently impressed by Sports Illustrated being able to churn out their high quality annual swimsuit magazine and get people to pay for it when alternatives like Busted Coverage and free porn are much more readily available that deliver similar services for free. Maybe old media isn’t dead and gone after all.
What Sports Illustrated does have what I don’t is that can tweet at Gigi Hadid to appear at an event at a moment’s notice and my DMs at Genevieve Morton to ask what she had to eat at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner still haven’t been responded to three month later. SI trotted out a handful of their most promising young guns to throw out the first pitch for the Brooklyn Cyclones.
The dabbled with some in-between innings shenanigans because that’s what minor league baseball can afford.
They sealed the event by hazing Jessi Perez and Ariel Meredith with an ice bucket challenge.
(Review pending when the full video is released. Holler at your boy SI when that video pops)
I guess they have Heather the night off since she’s already been immortalized in GIF form getting suds spraying in her face. An alternative option would have been dousing Lily Aldridge since she better known as a Victoria’s Secret angel than a SI model.
It would be payback to VS for saying all those nasty things about Kate Upton a few years back. It’s not as well known as more publicized rivalries, but the rivalry between SI models and VS angels is more vicious than Tide/Tigers. And the models smell better too.
At least, the fans in attendance were treated to a bevy of swim models splash water at each other. Mediocre baseball in summer 2014 in Gotham trickled down to the minor league affiliate as the game ended in tie.
