First the Packers appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Then I commit to fly home for the game. And now, in the jinx of all jinxes, ESPN’s expert panel (a misnomer, given that it includes Sean Salisbury) has unanimously picked the Packers to win on Sunday. (Mark Schlereth has not yet registered a pick). So did the experts at HBO’s “Inside the NFL” and the two guys at Yahoo!
I would be more concerned about the jinx factor if they hadn’t also unanimously picked the Patriots.
