Sports Illustrated Cover Jinx? We Hope So, For the Yankees

Finally, the Red Sox catch a break.

We hope.

The New York Yankees “Core Four” (Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada and Mariano Rivera), are set to appear on this week’s cover of Sports Illustrated. The SI cover has been known to jinx and bring unfortunate situations to whoever fills it. To some, this idea may seem childish, but to Boston Red Sox fans, people who live off of superstitions, this might be just what they need.

Jeter, Pettitte, Posada, and Rivera have been the core of the Yankees for the past fifteen season and each had a role in the teams’ last five World Championship. If there were ever four people Red Sox Nation wanted to jinx, it was these four.

And what better time for it to happen? Boston has opened the 2010 season struggling their way to a 9-11 record, while the Empire has seen no layoff from last year’s World Series Championship and has jumped out to a 12-6 start. This time though, the Red Sox are not only pursuing the Yankees, as it is the Rays who currently occupy first place in the AL East.

True, we’re only 20 games into the new season and it is not nearly time to start praying for a Red Sox win, but it’s never too early to hope for a Yankees curse.

It may not be the Curse of the Bambino, but it’s a start.
