Follow Jimmy and Me
When I'm not filling in for Jimmy, I run SI's Vault, which has every story SI has written in the magazine's 55-year history. I also have a Twitter account where I like to post old and embarrassing photos of athletes. Among today's gems are Andre the Giant and Elle Macpherson wearing the same outfit, Jaromir Jagr's increcible mullet and Mike Ditka surrounded by rubber duckies. If you still need your Jimmy Traina fix this week, follow him on Twitter here.
