I had seen that mentioned elsewhere, not sure where. As long as nothing else happened of note in the sports world, it was to be a cover story on Votto and the Reds was what I heard/read. Might have been murmued about on the Dan Patrick show.

But what about......the SI cover Jinx (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sports_Illustrated_Cover_Jinx)? Oh no!

well, it was a nice run. a lot of fun, i guess it had to end somehow.

here's hoping they somehow finish above .500, at least. ;)

The Reds have been receiving a lot of media attention lately.It wouldn't surprise me to see a Votto cover or maybe something like Votto vs Pujols.It's only a matter of time before the media portrays the two as mortal enemies.

As a fangirl I would LOVE to see Joey on the cover....but thinking about that SI cover jinx makes me a nervous wreck. :eek: :eek: :eek:

I'm sure the fans in Louisville will be supportive of Joey despite his upcoming struggles.

I hope it's true... Votto deserves it.

Jeff Picoro just confirmed on Reds Live that Joey will be on the SI cover this week (it comes out Thursday) and they even showed the cover which looks pretty cool. Let's hope he beats that curse into the ground especially since he usually hits the ball like a maniac during September and we really need that this year. Go Joey! :D

Griffey in 2004 was the last time a Red made the cover.

My favorite SI cover.

Same here, although Marge Schott's "Red Menace" cover is a close second.

My favorite Reds cover ever was the May 1987 Eric the Red cover.

I'm enjoying the image I have in my head of dopey Cubs' fans frothing at the mouth as they read about "nice guy" Joey Votto. :evil:

Gonna have to get a copy and have Joey sign it when we meet him when they come to Denver!

I know it's not an action shot but this is one of my favorites because to me, George Foster was the epitome of cooool.

The Votto cover replaces my previous favorite, February 2000:

"How the Reds stole Junior"

They predict us to win the WS in that issue I believe.

The last few paragraphs tell the story: we need to lock Votto up for a long time.

What last few paragraphs?

And I agree. I want to see an 6 to 8 year deal this off-season.

Not 4 or even 5. For once in this city give a true long-term deal to one of our home grown.

Hmmm, I just got finished reading the Joey article (Fay has it linked in his blog, here's the direct link (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1173624/1/index.htm), and its a really great story) and then happened to notice an SI cover from just a few weeks ago near the bottom of that same page. Anyone notice the slight resemblances between the cover I linked below and the Joey cover? I wonder if they did that on purpose.
