Jinxed! S.I. puts Eli Manning on cover







Sports Illustrated is single-handedly trying to sabotage the underdog New York Giants' chances of winning the Super Bowl by putting Eli Manning on the cover.


"Eli's The Manning," the headline reads on the latest edition, which hits newsstands Wednesday.


Don't think there's a jinx?


Last week's cover boy was Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre. And we all know how well that turned out for the yellow and green cheesehead team.


Why anger the football Gods when the Giants are already 12 point underdogs against a New England Patriots team that has yet to lose this season?


SI spokeswoman Karen Dmochowsky laughed off any talk of the curse and said readers will find inside that senior writer Paul "Dr. Z" Zimmerman is picking the Giants to win.


But, she added ominously: "I was at the game and I'm a Packer fan."


Still don't think there's a jinx? Consider this:


Amani Toomer and the Giants made the cover in January 2001 after routing the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC title game. The Baltimore Ravens returned the favor by trouncing the Giants in the Super Bowl.
