Remember this post? How I was worried about my alma mater, the Number One Fucking Team in the Land, succumbing to the dreaded "SI Cover Jinx?"
Well, I got to the mailbox today, eagerly anticipating seeing my beloved Dawgs on the cover, and what do I find but this:
Ohio State? Perennial victims of violent SEC date rape in BCS games? When UGA is number one? I understand that fantasy mags and CF preseason rags alter their covers to sell in the local markets, but you're kidding me, right? I'm only about 12 hours north the motherland, and I get subjected to this?
On the upside, I can now easily talk myself into the theory that this acts as an "Ennervate." (Also known as a counter-spell to "Stupefy" -- possibly comparable to the SI Jinx -- in Harry Potter lingo).
