Saints Make the Cover of SI

Did Sports Illustrated just jinx the Saints season? Before there was the Madden Curse, there was the SI cover jinx.

Athletes are very superstitious, and SI just went and did the equivalent of talking to a pitcher in the dugout during a no hitter. The Saints are in the midst of their best season ever and are 6-0 heading into their Monday contest with rival Atlanta. Now SI goes and puts us on the cover. The Saints are the same team that once has a voodoo ceremony done in the Superdome to cleanse that building of its own curses.

Thanks a lot national media for joining the bandwagon; you better not have jinxed our season.
