I think this is insane. At least Venus is in the lower corner.
What did Finch do last week?

I didn't expect Venus to get the cover. Now if she completes the career Grand Slam, then she might.

Nothing against Sharky, but I think if she'd won, they'd have put her on the cover (even if they did last year). Yes, blacks get the cover a lot... in "black" sports, like basketball. Yes, they put Serena in the swimsuit issue last year... but the ethnic mix there is nearly as white as that of the WTA. (Except for mixed race Tyra Banks, who's really light skinned).

not surprising....I think they had her planned for awhile and they didn't expect the Women to steal the show at Wimbledon this year.

btw, the pic is fugly...she's a cute girl but bad pic. :tape:

I'm not so sure about that. She won the Y/E championships and they didn't rush to put her on the cover, but I think she would have goten more consideration than Venus got.

BTW, I didn't know Tyra was of mixed race.

I think Joy (who now posts as joie, used to as bajangurl) said that a year or two ago here re. Tyra. BTW, whatever her parentage, you don't think a dark skinned black woman identical to her in every other respect would get the play she does on SI, do you? (They'd probably give her directions to Jet Magazine's office).

Where were the type of sponsors like camera and cellphone companies for the W/S, even when they were winning most of the Slams a few years ago? (Its biased not to think they have appeal only to blacks. And IC black kids with cellphones all the time, anyway).

Fact is, tennis players very rarely make the SI cover. Even Sampras rarely made it on there, despite all the records he broke. Tennis is a very small deal in the US sports world, unfortunately. :(

You don't think that if a certain skank had won the several Slams that were widely projected for her a decade ago, she'd have been all ova their cover (@ least for Wimby & USO titles) probably every single time?

There's a 50,000 watt radio station in California calling itself "KHTKournikova"
I'd bet Anna would sell more SI's than Finch will.

But Roger & Venus deserve this cover. 3 Wimby's each.

who is Jenny Finch?


Only the best fast-pitch pitcher that plays for the US national & olympic team. She played for Arizona State in her college years. She's amazing - and needless to say - GORGEOUS! :)

2nd best.... Lisa Fernandez. ;)

Well...OK! Followed by Cat Osterman! ;)

i prefer Cat Osterman, she's got crazy movement on her ball. but jenny and lisa are good too. with those three on our national team, nobody can beat us. ive watched us play australia twice this year and we 7 run ruled them both times and they're suppose to be the second best team in the world!!

They were on the SI cover then. So this is twice for Finch.

i agree. and to think maria made the cover last year for winning wimby and roger didn't make the cover after his third slam at the uso. once again SI, ESPN and the like are retarded. :shrug: if roger only was a blonde female who lived in the US :retard:

i don't look at it as an indictment of sharapova. i think her amazing run last year warranted the cover. it's a shame that roger hasn't been featured on the cover, however, and that's my point. it isn't like roger is some demonically ugly man, i'd put him in the top percent of good looking people in sports. ;) anyway, if he wins the us open, his fifth slam and second consecutive us open and second straight domination of wimbledon and us open, something is wrong, seriously wrong.

maria deserved the cover, although i think roger deserved it more. what bothers me is that he hasn't made the cover at all, with everything that he's done. that's really a shame, and yes he is hot so there's a bonus there too.

yes! i like cat osterman! finally someone who likes cat osterman!! my whole softball team doesnt know who's cat osterman. and they think jenny finch is very pretty. but she's more of cute than pretty. lisa's pitching motion too me looks exaggerated, but what the heck it's effective. what about amanda freed? she's not bad right..

She is the cheap looking blonde with the baseball bat.

huh?
Jul 7th, 2005, 01:30 PM
that is a really horrible picture....but I have to say that Lisa Fernandez is prolly the best pitcher I've seen...her change-up? omg...AMAZING!...but Jenny Finch is cool...I like it when she does This Week In Baseball and she pitches against the major leauge boys and can't none of them hit her....:):):) and that's before she starts with the rise ball and junk :) I wish I was Jenny Finch!

I am sorry that Finch is on the cover of SI because one of the reasons SI exists is to exploit women. You don't see the men on the cover in skimpy clothing and in provocative poses, and you certainly don't see them in swimsuits.

The cover story had nothing to do with any recent athletic events - it was just a (bad) fluff piece about which athletes one would invite to a pool party. Wasn't even exploitation - just a waste of time.

Okay, newsflash people, we don't want Venus on the jinky cover of SI. It's bad enough she's in the corner, which is prolly the reason she lost the Fed Cup match to Myskina. :p

Note, Maria hasn't won a slam since she appeared on it. :shrug:

you need to school your softball team on "the cat"! amanda freed is pretty good, but i think cat, jenny and lisa are better. if lisa fernandez was pitching to me i would be very scared!!

That particular issue of SI was probably planned months ago and unfortunately, Venus won Wimbledon probably at the wrong time just because of that.

Now had Lindsay won the event instead, she probably would not have even been given a corner, but she would of cared less.

"A certain skank"?

What in the world has Maria ever done to merit that particular insult?:rolleyes: Not to mention Masha has been on the SI cover ONE time, same as Venus, except Maria had to win a Grand Slam first, while Venus hadn't won a Slam yet.

I think Venus and Roger should have both been on the cover but I don't see why Maria should be insulted because they weren't.
