SI stopped fucking around with gimmicky cover models and went back to the real deal by putting Marisa Miller on the cover of this year's Swimsuit Issue.  This year's edition apparently has, um, NFL cheerleaders making their swimsuit debut, all new bodypainting masterpieces, and players' wives showing it off — although what "it" is, I'm not sure.  You can see the full cover here, and's swimsuit home is here.

With Leather will have more coverage on this in just a bit, but before I move forward, I need to address this Michael David Smith post over at FanHaus.

The cover model is Marisa Miller… whom I had never heard of until I learned that she was the cover model, but who I can now tell you is a 29-year-old from Santa Cruz, California. Is it just me or does she look a lot older than 29?

So that seals it, right?  Should we hold a funeral for FanHaus, or just turn around and walk away from the smoking wreckage?
