Adam Jones and the Orioles on the Sports Illustrated cover

2

If you're a believer in the Sports Illustrated jinx, you might be a little nervous by the fact that Adam Jones has appeared on the cover this week. It's the first time an Oriole has been on the cover all season. On the other hand, it's only a regional cover. Does the jinx still apply to those? Also, we can take delight in the fact that it is Jones paired with Alex Ovechkin of the Capitals (whose season is getting underway), rather than a player from the DC baseball team? Yes, I think we can. Just what's up with the home white saying Baltimore?
