    I'm really not sure what the big deal here is. Look, like it or not, we are all struggling for attention and to stay relevant and a magazine like the sporting news is still in the entertainment business as well as the sports business, so having fun is not really out of bounds.

    I figured NYT style would be N.A.S.C.A.R.

    Why the double cover? If its worthy of a cover, just do it that way and don't try to save face by having a second cover with actual sports.

    That said, I don't think the comedy Talladega Nights is worthy of a sports magazine cover. Maye if it were an article on Glory Road or some other sports movie that had some bigger message than just a comedy. One of my favorite movies ever and most underrated in my mind -- oh yeah, it was better than Bull Durham -- was Major League. But it never deserved a cover of a national sports magazine.

    Articles inside are the limit for a movie like this, in my opinion.

    NYT style on acronyms is periods between capital letters unless it's spoken as a word. Then it's capitalized first letter, rest lower, no periods.
