One of the latest ad campaigns by Sports Illustrated consists of these hilarious print ads that claim, "There’s more to the story than just the game."

The three different advertisements depict the American dollar bill with the caption, "Hansie Cronje’s greatest challenge wasn’t with a bat or ball," Uncle Sam with the caption, "In 1971 Cassius Clay went 12 rounds in the supreme court with uncle Sam’s conscription policy. He won that bout too," and lastly, Hitler with the caption, "Jesse Owen’s greatest opposition didn’t run the 100m."
