Saints fans are hoping a certain superstition won't keep their squad from a Super Bowl win this weekend.

The "Sports Illustrated cover jinx" is a common held myth that says the individual or team that gets the magazine, also gets bad luck.

Drew Brees is this week's cover boy-- the black and gold faithful are hoping bad luck doesn't follow.

The last time the jinx held true was just last week.
Days after quarterback Brett Favre graced the cover, his Vikings lost to the Saints in the NFC Championship game.

Still, many Saints fans are throwing superstitions aside. They say it's going to take more than a stroke of bad luck to keep their squad down.
