By now, you may know that Sports Illustrated is publishing a series of commemorative covers (suitable for framing) featuring all 23 members of the World Cup championship team, plus coach Jill Ellis.

Here’s a slideshow from SI of the ‘outtakes,’ the shots that didn’t make the cover.

Hat’s off to the SI photo editors for not running the one of Abby Wambach in rose-colored jeans (or are they jorts?)

While you’re on the SI site, check out these great World Cup slideshows as well. One is from the final against Japan, and one is from the ticker tape parade in New York City.
