ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – The Sports Illustrated cover jinx apparently can last for more than six months.

Blues player T.J. Oshie and Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright were both featured on the cover of last October’s regional issue to preview the NHL season and upcoming baseball playoffs.

By now we all know it wasn’t a great weekend on the St. Louis sports scene, as both saw their seasons come to an abrupt end. The Blues were eliminated in the first round of the NHL playoffs for the third straight year. And Wainwright suffered a torn Achilles tendon and will miss the rest of the 2015 season.
