Sports fans can be a superstitious bunch. We can find trends anywhere.
Over the years, there has been a "jinx" associated with being on the cover of Sports Illustrated
. Well, now it appears the jinx extends not only from the cover but to SI
's web site.
One Georgia fan hypothesized
that one portent of UGA's loss to the mighty Vols Saturday night (still revelling in it...will be for weeks) was that cheerleader Christine Conley
was featured as Cheerleader of the Week on SI's web site earlier in the week. Seems the trend started a few weeks ago when Alabama cheerleader Jody Reeves
was featured before the Tide lost to Arkansas.
So does this make it an official jinx yet or just some type of odd coincidence.
I say SI
should feature a Florida cheerleader this week and see what happens....
