SI.com Vault

SI.com unveiled a new section of their website today called The Vault. It has every issue of Sports Illustrated ever published and is costs nothing. I just finished browsing through an issue featuring Alan Trammell on the cover and profiling the 84 Tigers amazing season. I've never wanted to smoke Lucky Strikes, buy The Empire Strikes Back on VHS or sit in Tiger Stadium as badly as I wanted to after reading that issue. I can't recommend this website strongly enough, so stop reading this and go check it out right now. For those that are interested in what I writing I am putting together my Tigers season preview and its going to be epic. 3,000 words and counting.......

I bet you $50 there is no way on god's green earth that you pull yourself away from snorting crushed up nicotine patches off the ass cracks of meth addled hookers long enough to post your season preview before the season actually begins.

that site is pretty awesome. I was checking out the issue from 2000 after Michigan State won the national title.

If you want to read something real depressing, search for the Scott Mitchell article about his free agent deal w/ the Lions. He was thiiiiiissssssss clllllooooooossssseeeee to being the Vikings headache. The Lions should have rolled w/ Kramer.

Thanks for the heads-up. It was great to go back and read about John Salley's "digs" from an issue in 1988.

Andy, this is your sister. I had no idea you were without a toaster, that is terrible. For like 12 dollars we can get you one at Target. Let me know and I can pick one up for you.
