Jim Dilling: An SI "Face in the Crowd"

When you operate a blog, you get pretty familiar with the photos you have at your disposal. Heck, readers of DtB themselves have probably gotten pretty familiar with some of our recurring head-shots -- Katelin Rains, Liz Alabi, Garrett Heath.

So it was an odd kind of familiarity I felt last night leafing through my new issue of Sports Illustrated -- the one without the swimsuits -- when I saw Jim Dilling's face smiling back at me from the "Faces in the Crowd" section -- the same exact shot, it turns out, that has often graced our pages, including this one.

SI highlighted Dilling for the same reason's we've been doing so -- he's one of the best jumpers in the nation, bar none!

Added Mankato Bonus: There's a really honest, introspective interview with former Mankato State steeplechase national champion and long-time road warrior Joey Keillor on the Running Minnesota web-site.
