If this trifecta is in play, then it must be Sports Ilustrated Swimsuit Issue time.
And this year isn't just any issue. No, this year's version is the 50th anniversary of that most all-American spank bank.
Thankfully only the premise is 50 years old. I don't think any of us want to see any of the original 1964 vintage models in see through thongs.
In the days before the internet, the appearance of a Cheryl Tiegs nipple or a Cindy Crawford butt covered in sand was a much more reliable indicator of the imminent arrival of spring than any Minnesota groundhog.
This year's cover features not one, but three models on a beach in revealing swimwear. Not bad for 50. Not bad at all.
Knowing finding the necessary assets would be easy enough, I picked one of these lovely ladies at random to feature this week.
Please say hello to Chrissy Teigen.
Ms. Teigen was SI's Swimsuit "Rookie of the Year" in 2010. Before that she was a pinch hit model on the still inexplicably popular game show, Deal or No Deal.
When she's not modeling, Ms. Teigen is a foodie and writes about her foodie adventures on her blog.
She's also married to musician John Legend and appeared in the video for his song "All fo Me."
