Were you enraptured while reading E.M. Swift's SI profile of Erik
Weihenmayer, the first blind man to reach the summit of Everest?
Did your jaw drop at the photograph by Heinz Kluetmeier of Kenyan
marathoner Julius Bitok training with giraffes? If you're an SI
subscriber and you're scratching your head in confusion, it's
probably because you've been missing out on some of the most
provocative writing and pictures SI offers.
Many subscribers--even cover-to-cover loyalists--have yet to
sign up for either SI ADVENTURE or GOLF PLUS, two additional
sections of sports coverage that are available, at no extra
charge, within the weekly magazine. Four hundred thousand of you
already receive the three-month-old SI ADVENTURE, which packs
pieces on everything from catching waves to catching big air,
from buildering to bouldering. In this, its inaugural year, SI
Adventure will appear in 10 issues of SI. Along with its
seven-year-old brother, GOLF PLUS, an almost weekly supplement
that annually provides some 300 pages of golf news and features
to 475,000 readers, SI ADVENTURE is available to subscribers
There's one hitch: For now, subscribers can receive one section
or the other--not both. Depending on whether 15-foot swells or a
tee time at Pebble Beach would be more likely to rouse you at 6
a.m., you can order SI ADVENTURE or GOLF PLUS to go with all our
other sports coverage to which you are accustomed. Just dial
1-800-205-0314 or visit www.sicustomerservice.com and state your
preference, and our customer service staff will take it from
It's SI's equivalent of a cherry on top.
Did we mention that it's free?
