Deep CoverageAfter spending some time with your survey of 2,548 SPORTS ILLUSTRATED covers (The Covers, Nov. 10), I have only one question: You've published a swimsuit issue for 40 years? I first subscribed to SI when I was a teenager back in the '70s. During that time I can't recall ever seeing a single beautiful, bikini-clad babe. Thanks a lot, Mom.KIP MEINHARDTIlwaco, Wash.

Queer Eye for the Sports Guy was the first time in a long time that I have not finished a Reilly column.
TOM FENDER, Fort Collins, Colo.

This week's Sign of the Apocalypse: Seeing Rick Reilly in that outfit.
NADER AL HAKIM, West Bloomfield, Mich.

I'm an avid athlete and sports junkie. Gay men play sports for the same reasons as anyone else: the competition, the camaraderie and to push our physical limits. We do not watch sports to see men with their shirts off, nor do we play sports so we can go shopping afterward. Name the sport, and I'll whip you at it, Reilly—and fishing is not a sport. Why the depiction of all gays as campy queens? Gay-bashing is not a sport. I'd love to get you in a boxing ring, Reilly. Now that would be sport.
LANCE FRANCIS, Tucson

It's a sign of progress that gay sports are mentioned in SI and also that straight and gay people can share humor about issues of sexual orientation.
RICHARD A. BANYARD, Wayne, Pa.

Rick Reilly is now my alltime favorite metrosexual.

What in the hell does exfoliate mean?
