Magazine Cover Jinx

Many of us have heard of the Sports Illustrated cover jinx - that athletes who appear on the cover of that magazine meet unfortunate events soon after (the most recent incident appears to be skier Lindsey Vonn, who was on the cover of the Winter Olympics Preview issue and who just announced she is battling a deep bruise on her shin).

But what about the Time Magazine cover jinx? Could there be a similar superstition linked to those individuals who are selected as the "Person of the Year"? This article takes a closer look at these questions.
