President Donald Trump has hinted that the recent good fortune of the Boston Red Sox is due to a recent visit to the White House, which he hailed as “the opposite of being on the cover of Sports Illustrated”.

Last Thursday, Trump welcomed the team to the White House to mark their 2018 World Series Championship. Since the meeting, the Red Sox have gone on to win three in a row against the Seattle Mariners.

Trump tweeted Monday:

“Has anyone noticed that all the Boston @RedSox have done is WIN since coming to the White House! Others also have done very well. The White House visit is becoming the opposite of being on the cover of Sports Illustrated! By the way, the Boston players were GREAT guys!”

Urban legend says that any successful team or athlete to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated will subsequently be jinxed.

Good thing there’s nothing else for Trump to worry about.
