    Sports Illustrated Curse Rears It's Ugly Head

    If you guys managed to get your hands on one of the Sports Illustrated from last week, you probably know that there were two different covers. One of the Jets, the other of the Vikings.

    Both lost.

    Coincidence? I think not! The way the Vikings lost was so completely heartbreaking that only the SI curse can be responsible for it. Five turnovers and we were in it. A game-winning-drive ended by an interception, but we were still in it. It took the 'Aints a ton of bad calls and a 40-yd field goal in overtime to beat us. The Vikings WERE the better team.

    And then we have the SI cover curse...

    I dunno, but thinking about this made me feel better. Also, watching 3 episodes of House works too

    I now forgive Favre and want him back (still blaming Tahi :P) and am already ordering his jersey.

    SKOL VIKINGS!

    I smiled big when i saw it. Looked awesome! Big and bold. Brett screaming in victory and those beautiful colors...

    Then I said to myself, crap...why on SI.

    Course we have our own curse to get past one of these years.

    In our office, I have the halls lined with every SI cover a Vikings player has been on in nice frames.

    It pains me to add this one to the long list as it will remind me of the game.

    But its going up.

    Man, so do I...for so many reasons, not the least of which is leadership by example. Our guys played harder than I've ever seen them play, and I believe one of the reasons was Favre.

    IMO... this was a bigger curse than that.

    there was also an issue with the Saints and Colts.

    They had regional covers, not one standard cover with only one team/player
