What a difference 20 years makes

The July 1987 Sports Illustrated cover, above, went a long way toward creating the negative stereotype the pit bull has lived under for the past two decades.

This month’s cover, below, and the story that goes along with it, goes a long way toward showing how wrong that stereotype is.

It took 21 years, but I guess we can¬†consider their mistake — blaming the breed, as opposed to what humans have done to it — corrected.
