The dreaded Sports Illustrated cover jinx. For those who don’t know, there is an urban legend about making the cover of the famous magazine. If someone or a team is on the cover of Sports Illustrated prior to an event or season, that athlete or teams performs poorly right thereafter. Which is precisely what happened to the Cleveland Indians in 1987.
