Today’s top sports stories: the cause of the Super Bowl blackout, King Felix’s deal on hold, this year’s Sports Illustrated cover girl and more.

Apparently it was a failing electronic device that led to that whole blackout thing at the Super Bowl. Even better: this particular device was specifically designed to prevent blackouts. [Fox Sports]

Yesterday we all thought that Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners had agreed on a $175 million dollar seven-year contract. Today, though, the Mariners are saying that there actually is no such deal. [MLB]

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was lost for the season with a torn ACL, but it turns out he might be back a bit sooner than expected. It was first thought he had a full tear, but it may be just a partial tear. [L.A. Times]

The Pebble Beach National Pro-Am kicked off this week, and one of the biggest names there is former National Security Adviser and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Rice also became one of the first women admitted as a member of Augusta National. The woman likes her golf. [N.Y. Times]

Care to find out who’s on the cover of this year’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue? Hint: it’s the same woman as last year. [GuySpeed]
