Sports Illustrated Cover: Fallen Bill Iffrig from the Boston Marathon Bombings

The cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated is powerful with the famed photo of marathoner Bill Iffrig collapsed on the ground, after the bomb had exploded, with Boston Police officers surrounding him.

As we reported last night, Bill was uninjured and actually got up off the asphalt and walked the remaining 20-feet to the finish line (read more about Bill Iffrig HERE). ┬áBill’s a tough 78-year old grizzled runner.

Two things: 1. Bill never would have believed yesterday morning that he’d be on the cover of Sports Illustrated today and 2. There is no way in hell he would have ever believed the reason for him being on the cover.

The photo is powerful, iconic, and will be the lasting image from a horrible day in marathon and U.S. history.
