    We have to hand it to Sports Illustrated. They really know how to find beautiful women.

    SI''s HotClicks has named Raquel Alessi as the "Lovely Lady of the Day," and we can see why.

    Raquel is an actress and model, and you might recognize her from FOX's Standoff and the movie Ghost Rider staring Nicholas Cage.
