It was a great closing for the traders on Wall Street today–thanks to a bevy of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue models who stopped by the New York Stock Exhange to ring the closing bell.

This sporty special guest appearance wasn’t a surprise to whoever followed the NYSE press releases. However, the actual gals in attendance are a little baffling.

We were also thinking that SI rookie Emily Ratajowski had a good shot at being the cover girl. We don’t see how Emily can make it to Los Angeles in time for Kimmel’s show, though. They wouldn’t have let her linger in NYC with our current snowstorms.
