As someone whose previous life was in publishing, I just cannot get my mind around the WHY of mixing two iconic, but very disparate, pop culture icons that's coming together next week.

Sports Illustrated, whether you're a fan or not, has issued sleek, skinny, super models in skimpy swimsuits in the middle of winter much to the delight of men and women for years.

But a Barbie doll on this year's issue? What is SI thinking? This is like mixing ice cream and ketchup.

Separate, they're great! But together? I don't get it.

About the Author

There's a reason why Mac & Gaydos is the number one talk show in the Valley. To someone who has never listened, Mac Watson and Larry Gaydos describe their show as "relatable stories that emotionally connect with our audience... basically, stuff that affects our daily lives here in Arizona."

Mac Watson is a native of Maryland, worked as a music DJ for 10 years before shifting to talk radio that eventually led him to News-Talk 92.3 KTAR-FM in 2007. Mac Watson expresses strong opinions with an equally quick wit that the Valley has come to appreciate.
