On SI cover jinxes

We’re about, oh, two years late on this, but noticed this while scanning the many SI covers that litter the walls of our penthouse apartment: Albert Pujols was on the Baseball Preview issue in 2006. The 2006 World Champs? The St. Louis Cardinals. Well how about that?

The SI vault, which is perhaps the best thing on the Net short of porn, also shows that Pujols graced the cover of the May 22, 2006 issue.

Though the notorious cover jinx seems to be going strong, if you’re the type to believe in jinxes, curses and vampires. After the Cubs’ Kosuke Fukudome was highlighted on the cover last week with the headline, “It’s Gonna Happen,” the North Siders have gone 3-5 and lost control of first place in the NL Central — to the St. Louis Cardinals.

Full circle, bitches. Full circle.
