LaVoi blog entry on SI cover image of skier Vonn catching air

Nicole LaVoiNicole LaVoi, Tucker Center Associate Director and Lecturer in the School of Kinesiology, wrote a blog entry on February 2 entitled "Vonn Watch: Sports Illustrated Cover is Predictable" in order to stimulate dialogue on Sports Illustrated's choice of cover image for Lindsey Vonn, US Olympic skier. And LaVoi has succeeded in generating dialogue, monologue and just plain flame, garnering large numbers of hits--40,000 on the site and thousands more on sites citing and critiquing the post--as well as mention in USA Today, Yahoo Sports, Technorati, CoCo Perez and other outlets in the news media and blogosphere.
