I'd like to suggest a change from cheesecake to beefcake for a few years. This would give you guys a chance to experience the Swimsuit Issue as many of your wives might—you'll see what you aren't now and won't ever be.

The sexiest model by far in the latest Swimsuit Issue was Serena Williams—a real woman with a real body. I hope you'll include pictures of more real women in future years.

So Rick Reilly wants a new idea for the Swimsuit Issue (THE LIFE OF REILLY, Winter 2003)? How about an old idea—models with curves? Enough already with the bony Euro-models and dorky-looking waifs.

I have waited all winter for my Swimsuit Issue, and what's the very first thing I do when I take it out of the mailbox? Turn to the back page to read Reilly's column, the same thing I do whenever I get my SPORTS ILLUSTRATED. Am I the most pathetic heterosexual male on the planet or what?
