Congratulations on one of your finest issues (Jan. 16). Sooper Dooper was one of the best football articles I have ever read and made me glad to be a baseball fan. Joe Marshall's Super Bowl preview (The Orange Is Doomed To Be Crushed) was thoroughly enlightening and, being a fan of Atlanta teams. I felt right at home with Princeton's 1-22 hockey team (Practice Didn't Make Perfect). To top it off. you gave us bathing suits—and girls ( Brazil Is Really Perking). Bravo!

Who says Friday the 13th is unlucky? That's the day we received your annual swim-suit issue. It's the best thing that's happened since night baseball. The mailman was surrounded by admirers of Cheryl Tiegs and Christie Brinkley. anxious for a glimpse of this year's beauties. The pictures were a welcome diversion for a houseful of guys trapped at school during semester break.

The temperature was minus 14�F., but in the mail came the Jan. 16 issue of SI and the Gurney spring seed catalog. I knew right then that I would make it through another Minnesota winter.
Thank you for making a cold Wisconsin winter "bareable."
Allow us to be among the first to vole for Sportswoman of the Year 1978: intrepid Cheryl Tiegs. Amen! And awoman!
The Brazilians are coming! The Brazilians are coming!
In addition to the beautiful women there was some excellent photography by Walter Iooss Jr.
My God, are you in trouble! Your swim-suit issue was never barer or better. I can hardly wait for the letters.
After perusing the annual swimsuit issue, especially the cover, I wonder how soon the models will wear nothing at all.
