Why Sports Illustrated, WHY?! The Tigers Will Officially NOT make the Playoffs.

Had to post this. From the Detroit News Online site, Detroit, specifically Comerica Park will be featured on the cover of the Sports Illustrated hitting shelves tomorrow.

Here is the article:

Here is some info about the SI cover jinx: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/features/cover/2002/jinx/main/

And I guess not surprisingly, there is a wikipedia article on this as well: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sports_Illustrated_Cover_Jinx

Surely they will lose 8 of their final 13 games and STILL only miss the division title by 1 game to the Twins (at least they are now beating the Indians 1-0 off a Raburn homer despite Jackson's awful start, again). I know this not only because of the SI jinx, but also because I already bought Tigers playoff tickets (but no flight to Detroit yet so there's the measure of confidence). I guess I can still hope for the Braves to go on another big win streak and steal the wild card, with 9 games left against the Nats and Mets anything can happen.
