This week New England Patriots owner, Robert Kraft, is featured as the cover story for sports illustrated. (Last week Tom Brady, Patriots QB, was on the cover with the headline Rematch.)
Peter King, wrote a great piece about Kraft and his bold leadership, which transformed the Patriots from the laughingstock of the league into a model franchise.
Generally, I’m not superstitious but you can’t deny the fact that after gracing the cover of sports illustrated many athletes and teams have fallen victim to the SI Jinx.
We all know that the Patriots are one of hardest working franchises in the NFL (if not all of professional sports), and they deserve the cover story and all of the accolades that come with it. Here’s hoping that the SI Jinx doesn’t spoil Super Bowl XLVI for the Patriots.
