Cover Jinx Grips Hub

The Muddy Chicken better be on the lookout for Colonel Sanders and Frank Perdue. When the Laser Show ignites, he'd better have a Underwriters Laboratory safety rating in place.

Don't look now, Nation, but 'Captain In Waiting' Dustin Pedroia appears on this week's cover of Sports Illustrated. You know, the one with the jinx attached. Remember Nomar and his shirtless pose—before multiple injuries derailed his Hall Of Fame express train? How about Brady's smiling face on the 2008 NFL preview—just before he blew out his knee?

But, still, no need to be superstitious on Pedey, right? Right.
