Thanks, Sports Illustrated

…she says sarcastically.

Popped over to the Zo Zone earlier today, and saw that Sports Illustrated has seen fit to curse honor Roy Halladay on the cover of the Baseball Preview issue.

Need I remind you all of Cole Hamels’ season last year, after his cover appearance in February 2009?

I know, I know, there’s no such thing as curses. Despite Hamels’ subpar 2009, the Phils did still make it to the WS. Nonetheless, couldn’t they have put, oh, Hanley Ramirez on the cover, or Johan Santana, or the Atlanta Braves team? I’d rather play it safe with this curse thing, you know?
