Is it a jinx if it's in comic book form?
Either way, Rays fans (if there are some) have to cautiously enjoy this awesome Sports Illustrated cover for the week.
Who would have ever predicted that a) Tampa Bay would grace ANY sports magazine cover b) that it would be a positive reference and c) an intimation of heroism would be made
Yes, that's a muscle bound Carl Crawford hoisting Derek Jeter in front of a bewildered Superman. Shouldn't A-Rod be coming to the rescue?
So in the spirit of hypersensitivity to the SI Cover jinx let us track the Rays from today, May 21st, over at least the next three weeks.
Tampa currently sits in 2nd place, 27-19, one game behind the Boston Red Sox.
Any wagers on the length of Tampa Bay Rays losing streak? I say 15 games.
