Sports Illustrated Gets More Awesome by the Week

Are you kidding me? Last week, it was a Favre-free issue, and now this week Aaron Rodgers is on the cover. It's the first time that a Packer has been on the cover since the famous Favre Sportsman of the Year edition, although I've probably seen that issue in purple more than I have in green and gold throughout the past year. Still, I will gladly give SI free publicity if they continue to please me so.

Now of course, when you see an SI cover, you think SI cover jinx. But who cares about that crap at this point. I mean, Aaron Rodgers being on the cover of Sports Illustrated is awesome. Clearly the nation is recognizing that even though the Packers had a 6-10 season last year, they are not to be taken lightly in 2009.

Seriously, have you looked at Yahoo!,,, or in the last couple of days. From Rodgers, to Grant, to Finley, Packers are popping up everywhere both online and on the shelves. I really think that this is going to be a special year, and I can honestly say I've never been more excited for a season to begin. So far, we're off to a good start.

Packers play tonight against the Titans at 7pm in the final preseason game. One goal: NO INJURIES.

It is one of four covers (Matt Ryan, Tony Romo, Ben Roethlisberger).

Yeah, I kind of figured after I wrote this. I hate SI and their regional covers. I understand why they do it, but it cheapens the whole thing.
