I finally found a copy of The New York Times' Play Magazine, of which I was a location scout for the cover shoot of Chad 'Ocho Cinco' Johnson of the Cincinnati Bengals this summer. This edition ran on 9/14/08.
Play Magazine is a quarterly publication of The New York Times; "A magazine that simultaneuosly celebrates how sports are played today while presenting the big, rich human stories that emerge from the world of sports..." - The New York Times' self description.
More information about the publication is at http://www.nytimes.com/sports/play/index.htm
