I like what SI has done with Fannation & all, but why do they not have more categories? Where is anything on F1, MMA, boxing etc? I realize baseball, football, basketball, golf, NASCAR are huge sports, but didn't SI have boxing (admittedly a dying sport) and MMA on two of their covers the last month? Ditto ESPN the Mag. I can see shortchanging F1, since 99% of other sports sites and magazines do anyhow, but why MMA? One of the few things I can find on UFC on si.com has Paris Hilton in it. This tells me SI's view on the sport is, "we'll cover it but we need a hook to make it cool." Two points -- 1) MMA & UFC can stand on their own, thanks, and 2) Paris Hilton is not cool. It's not like there's a lack of Dana White photos anyhow.

So with that I'll add my own thoughts on MMA -- did anybody else catch Johnnie Morton getting KNOCKED OUT on Saturday at that K1 PPV? The show was blah, but seeing a former WR get clocked doesn't happen everyday. Plus Brock Lesnar looked decent, though I'm still not 100% sure he can draw since the last time anybody remembers him from was WWE 3-4 years ago. Dude has a look and the wrestling pedigree though and I'd like to see him in their with Cro Cop, Sylvia or Couture. I'd also like to see Kurt Angle get in a (real) ring or octagon. Put him in with Tito Ortiz so he can either prove the naysayers wrong or get shut up once & for all.

And for an F1 note -- Lewis Hamilton is the most devastating rookie in at least 30-40 years. Incredible stuff so far. A win is coming soon for him, but Fernando Alonso will win the World Championship for the third straight year. Hamilton will end that run next year. Either way McLaren wins.
