An OP jinx?

Much has been made over the years about a jinx to those who appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated, but sadly, Kosmo is noticing there might be a jinx for getting some good publicity from the Oakland Press as well.
Kosmo will start with the fact that the boys soccer teams at Troy Athens and the football team at Birmingham Brother Rice, the No. 1-ranked team in the preseason previews for those sports, are struggling right now.
Athens is just above .500 despite having 10 starters back, although the good news for the legendary coach Tim Storch and his crew is that the real season doesn't begin until next month when the state playoffs arrive. There's plenty of time to fix things.
The same can't be said for Brother Rice, which is 2-3 and needs to beat both unbeaten Orchard Lake St. Mary's and Novi Detroit Catholic Central in the next two weeks to avoid a fourth loss.
Not only that, but Kosmo noticed that a day after a feature story ran on Rochester senior volleyball player Erin Leppek, the Falcons were swept in a match by Farmington.
The good news is that being on the front page of the OP sports section didn't bother the football team at Rochester, since the Falcons continued their good play with a 35-14 win at Troy Athens.
— Kosmo was sad to see Ortonville Brandon suffered an overtime loss to Fenton, the first loss of the sesaon for the Blackhawks. Kosmo has a feeling Brandon was looking ahead to this week's showdown with unbeaten Lapeer East. The only way for Brandon to make up for what happened this past Friday is to play a great game at East.
