UPDATE: Sorry to all, but mostly to myself, but Sports Illustrated has decided they no longer wish to share these beautiful photographs of beautiful models so they had to be removed. Please forgive the wet floors, that's from my tears of sorrow.

The day hath arrived. Word to the wise, it may be a very short day, but, you know, it hath arrived.
The 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition is out and, yep, it's always worth the wait. Swimsuit and bikini madness plus sextastic celebrity models of the highest order equals epic photo-set madness. It's really unmatched each year in hype and intensity in terms of magazine swimsuit collections.
While not the entire array of hotties, my favorites in the early going here are Irina Shayk, uber-sexy model who dons the cover of the magazine this year, Brooklyn Decker, perhaps the youngest ever to enter my personal Hall of Hotness, Cintia Dicker, readhead Brazilian wonder-muffin, Esti Ginzburg, the Israeli hardbodied model, and Izabel Goulart, who we just saw lovely and topless last week. Quite an ensemble. Stay dry. Enjoy.
