  • Forget The SI Cover Jinx!

    Being a centrefold isn't all that it's cracked up to be. Just look at what having TFN staple your bellybutton does for you:

    August--Tyree Washington a slam dunk to win Paris gold, doesn't.

    May--Deena Drossin has to have skin-cancer surgery

    April--Justin Gatlin goes from world indoor 60 champ to not making outdoor team

    March--Stacy Dragila goes from 'history's highest vaulter' to losing that title to noheighting at the world indor and not medaling outdoors

    February--Mo Greene's bid to become 4-time world champ sees him not making the final

    January--Jorge Torres picked for NCAA cross title but can't win a track title indoors or out

    I rest my case! (conveniently ignoring Allen Johnson in June, but I'm sure a meteor is crashing through the roof of his house even as we speak)

    Didn't seem to hurt King Carl or Edwin Moses or MJ (either one) too much. I seem to recall their visages a lot.

      Uh, the subject here was the TFN centrefolds, which only started earlier this year.

        "Alan Webb - Training Like a Pro" - there's a cover. A cover that became a jinx.

            He was one of the few American's to make the finals in Paris. He was a bright spot in a horrid showing by US distance runners in this year's world championships. I think he may have 13:10 5000meter potential. He is not the typical US 13:30 guy that is only interested in winning domestic races.

                We're talking about centerfolds, not covers.
