Sports Illustrated Predicted Astros Winning 2017 World Series… In June of 2014!
Phhttt! What Sports Illustrated cover jinx?
Back on June 30th of 2014, the venerable magazine ran a cover story, featuring All-Star outfielder George Springer, touting the Houston Astros as the 2017 World Series champions.
Last night, it all came true.
Today, the magazine, via it’s Twitter account jokingly bragged that they “called it” and ran an updated version of the cover.
Currently, issues of the magazine are selling for upwards of $350 on Ebay.
