Speculation had been swirling for the past week or so about the identity of this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model, and all signs justifiably pointed to our favorite 19-year old supermodel Knicks fan, Kate Upton, earning the honor. After all, she was mentioned no less than 764,872,358,725,361 times on this website in 2011, and I'm pretty sure that's the top priority that SI uses when choosing each cover model. Also, it didn't hurt that multiple online gossip sites had leaked the Upton news days ago, but we're going to pretend like we didn't know so we don't look like morons wearing only these party hats over our crotches.

As for Upton, she couldn't be happier, and I'm not basing that on her smile, because my binoculars broke yesterday. Instead, I'm just going by this quote from People Magazine:

"In the beginning you're pretty relaxed, you're not thinking of new poses and it just feels really natural at that point," she says. "At Sports Illustrated everyone's so nice and it’s like a family, you don't really think too much into it. I just have a lot of fun and be myself. It just comes so naturally."

Upton's cover was officially revealed on the Late Show with David Letterman last night, but it was reported that a shipment of the magazines was delivered to a gas station in Michigan early. That gas station? Shangri-La.

The makers of MLB 2K12 also wisely jumped on the Upton train, as they have the superduperduperSUPERDUPERmodel in their latest commercial. I haven't purchased a video game system, let alone a game, since the original PlayStation, but for some reason I am suddenly inclined to buy every gaming console available.
