    Well, the SI Baseball Preview issue will be able to last a little longer on the newsstands.

    My last issue is due in April. Still hacked they didn't extend the subscriptions when they went monthly - I've contacted them and complained, but the response was pretty lacking. The sad thing is I don't care enough and now - it almost seems a fitting time to just let it go.

    Definitely shouldn't pay more than maybe $10 a year for it. Got it free from kelloggs rewards. last time,
    got a year free from another internet survey site.

    So will the individual Mavens be spared?

    Hell, don't know how you get rid of Ballard, the guy did deep dives on hoops, wrote compelling features on a wide variety of subjects and could handle just about anything. I'd like to say any place would be lucky to have him, but if he doesn't end up at The New Yorker or Vanity Fair - where does he land?

    SCREW 'EM CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION (see above), but if you want to wait a month and throw in the Swimsuit Issue, that's cool. BTW - SI makes more money marketing the hell out of that issue with promotional advertising events, than they do with their Sportsperson of the Year stuff. And with COVID-19, I'm guessing they'll take a bath.
