I just got my Sports Illustrated in the mail, and it's the first football cover of the year.

To be exact, it's a Fantasy Football preview, which is just a whole other conversation. Who would have thought, a couple years ago, that Sports Illustrated would be doing an entire separate preview issue for a cottage industry of bar-buddies and cubicle neighbors playing fake football with fake teams without ever leaving their Internet connections? Of course, the dreams and the money are very real.

America's a wondrous place, I tell ya.

But the point is that Reggie Bush showed up in my mailbox and this pleases me immensely.

Yeeeee haw, y'all! It has begun.
