    Does anyone know how SI selects its faces for the Faces in the Crowd section?

    Yep ... they have link on their website. I sent one in a few years ago after covering a pitcher who threw a perfect game and a no-hitter (one hit batsman away from another perfecto) back-to-back in the same week. It's still one of the coolest things I've ever covered. He deservedly made it in.

    I've nominated two in my life. Both made it in. ;)

    Their criteria for inclusion seems to have slipped dramatically in recent years.

    No, you're thinking of Sportsman of the Year.

    Didn't they pay for contributions at one point?

    Yes, they did. Many moons ago, I sent in one about a 70-year-old who had two holes-in-one in one round, with a head shot of the guy, and they paid $75.

    I guess this means they don't pay now? What a ripoff!

    I should clarify: They paid $75 for the Faces item and $75 for the photo, as I recall.

    Ever notice that they have, at minimum, one hot high school or college chick? Always.

    You mean .... faces in the crowd, one of Rick Reilly's favorite column topics?

    Though, he did write one - I think in the past year - that brought tears to my eyes. The dad whose son died, and he had always wanted to submit his son's accomplishments to FintheC. Touchy story, no doubt.
