The Curse explained.

Back at the All-Star break, I bemoaned the appearance of five Mets on the cover of Sports Illustrated, predicting "dire consequences." My prediction has, so far, been off the mark, much to my delight. Now, with typical acuity, Tim Marchman explains the SI cover curse, in a way that makes me say "D'oh!"

This leads to another question: are the Mets, as the saying goes, the exception that proves the rule? I've never understood that one. How can an exception "prove" a rule?
