The “Core Four” of the Yankees, Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada, and Andy Pettitte (as if I needed to tell you) got on the cover of Sports Illustrated and let me be the first to say, that is a sweet ass cover.
That being said, I don’t have much else to say about the cover. Sure it’s cool, but after about 30 seconds I’ve moved on.
Here is what others are saying about the cover:
Mark Feinsand of the NY Daily News: “You may never see a group this successful together for this length of time in sports again in your lifetime. Enjoy them while you can.”
Lisa Swan of Subway Squawkers: “Because as a firm believer in the SI Cover Jinx, I feel like this cover story about the Core Four is just asking for trouble – times four. It’s why I was happy that Sports Illustrated picked the Phillies, and not the Yankees, to win the World Series. That jinx is powerful stuff – look what happened to the Mets’ 2009 season after SI picked them to win the World Series!”
Lisa goes on to make a good point about the Core Four, what more can be said about them? But I think Feinsand is right on the money, enjoy them while you can.
