Happy Friday. Jimmy is out today but should be back on Monday. Frankly, I don't blame him for staying in today -- it's a blustery 16 degrees in New York City and chilly throughout most of the country. Therefore, we are spending today focused on SI swimsuit models. The 2010 issue comes out in a couple weeks and Yep Yep has odds on who will land the cover (they originally wanted Jimmy, but he decided to pass). It's got Bar Refaeli at 100-1, Daniella Sarahyba at 7-1 and Brooklyn Decker at 3-2. I am going to go against the grain and pick the underrated Lucia Dvorska, mostly based on the picture above. And if there was a lifetime achievement award to be handed out, that would go Christie Brinkley, not only for her appearance in Vacation, but for this awesome photo from the 1976 swimsuit issue.
Play of the DayThis season has been a disaster for the Nets, but it is pretty cool that they let a fan design an inbounds play and actually used it during a game.

Remember the Tebow
Tim Tebow :: Bill Frakes/SIAfter leading Florida to a cinematic four-year-run,The Gatorbites Blog reports that film maker Chase Heavener has been following Tebow around with a camera "literally since the confetti fell on the Louisiana Superdome turf on Jan. 1." It's part of a future Tebow documentary that we imagine will be coming to DVD sooner than later. Now if this Te-doc ever expands into a dramatic film, we imagine a list of Hollywood types lining up to play the quarterback. Wonder if Jim Caviezel is lefthanded?
