Being a fan of both blues guitar and sports, I was absolutely thrilled to see one of my alltime favorites, the late, great Stevie Ray Vaughan, on the cover of SI's year-end issue. Say what? That's Tim Lincecum?

I don't understand why SI would have someone on its cover popping a cork and celebrating, then on the cover's border have the names of sports figures who died in 2010. Seems to be in poor taste.

All the White Moves
I wish all NFL veterans would take a cue from former Saints wide receiver Joe Horn and mentor young players like Roddy White (Catch Me Now, Dec. 27). While an exceptional talent, White needed to learn how to behave, prepare and perform like a true professional. Only seasoned players can supply that information, and Horn did. I tip my hat both to Horn for being a great mentor and to White for being a great student.

In reading the article about White I came across the comment "White's body simply exploded," and immediately thought of steroids. How sad. The young man could have worked his butt off or had a growth spurt but my first thought was about performance enhancers. Such is the effect of the steroid age in which we live.
