Really solid job. I would suggest accepting Kersee for Jackie Joyner-Kersee.

Why was Celine Dion on Sports Illustrated?

If only I could spell Lambeer, Lambere, Lambeir ... oh never mind ...

Has anyone else been loving these quizzes and saying to themselves, "Man, remember when SI was GOOD?" I miss those days.

Ok, this is not racist, but that picture of Troy Aikman looks like he's black. I entered every cowboy that was black from the 90's until I looked at his number.
Jun 20th, 2012 at 21:18 GMT
Wait...so you're aware of the Cowboys and Troy Aikman...yet when you see a player wearing number 8 in a Cowboy uniform, your first thought wasn't "AIKMAN!"
Jun 21st, 2012 at 23:38 GMT
I've been getting SI since 1997, and Brandi Chastain's cover is still my favorite. Perfect photo, perfect caption.

Blew through all of these, and spent the remaining five minutes trying to overcome the mental block this lifelong Patriots fan apparently self imposed on Howard.
Jul 15th, 2012 at 19:39 GMT
I really don't think it's racist to think somebody looks black in a picture, you probably could have done without that disclaimer. Now the handle "NeverTrustWhitey" is a different story.

Wow, not only did I not recognize the player, but I didn't even recognize the 49ers uniform!
May 24th, 2013 at 21:22 GMT
Some great covers. Chastain is classic.
May 24th, 2013 at 21:41 GMT
Consider accepting "Jimmy V" for Valvano. After all, that's what the foundation that bears his name uses.
May 24th, 2013 at 22:19 GMT
Why shouldn't "OJ" and "Tiger" ™be acceptable?
May 24th, 2013 at 22:26 GMT
Just look in awe at Joe and his rings
May 24th, 2013 at 22:35 GMT
Nice move putting Chastain next to Garnett. They were in a pretty funny commercial together.

McGwire and Clemmens were on steroids. Valvano ran a sleazy program. Capriatti and Daly have had drug problems. Simpson is in prison and Tyson did time for rape. Woods had multiple affairs and Holyfield owes a ton of child support.

What a great and diverse collection. "Don't give up, don't ever give up" - Jimmy V
May 25th, 2013 at 01:18 GMT
Not sure why "Jackie Joyner-Kersee" didn't work.
May 25th, 2013 at 01:48 GMT
I love the Chastain cover, but you're missing arguably the best of the 90's: Kurt Warner's "Who IS this guy??"
May 25th, 2013 at 02:50 GMT
@Delt46 Neither am I, I believe I had that as an acceptable answer though it's been a while since I put this together. I reported the issue to Sporcle.
May 25th, 2013 at 03:06 GMT
Any SI cover that refers to *anyone* other than Gordie Howe as "Mr. Hockey" should be burned, pure and simple. Other than that, great quiz.
May 25th, 2013 at 03:48 GMT
@cocky: yeah? what's your point? i don't watch sports for moral guidance. i suggest you don't, either.
May 25th, 2013 at 08:21 GMT
Full disclosure: I only got Reggie Lewis by incorrectly guessing Lennox Lewis as the boxer.
May 25th, 2013 at 11:43 GMT
smh i knew laettner, lemieux, and clemens but i spelled them all wrong
May 25th, 2013 at 15:44 GMT
Sad that only 35% remember Reggie Lewis - seems like only yesterday. Great talent.
May 25th, 2013 at 18:01 GMT
May 25th, 2013 at 19:00 GMT
@deugea...My point was these are some slimy people. And if I want your suggestions, I'll ask for them.
May 25th, 2013 at 21:17 GMT
I also got Reggie Lewis by incorrectly guessing Lenox Lewis, and agree that only Gordie Howe is Mr. Hockey. I can never remember Brandi Chastain's name even though that is such an epic picture. Did anyone else try seven different spellings of "Michelle Kwan" for Kristi Yamaguchi?
