Weak call, Sports Illustrated. Totally weak call

Charlie Dawg just, as she always does, alerted me to the mailman's arrival. He came bearing gifts today, too: The Sports Illustrated "Phillies Win! (But it was cold, wet and late. They deserved better.)" cover. Here's the picture I just took of it.

Bad quality, right? Right. Well, what do you want me to do? Because, when I went on, the cover that they're shilling to the rest of the country is actually a photo of friggin' Albert Haynesworth, lineman for the Tennessee Titans.

This time they've gone too far. I get the whole different covers by way of geography theory. It's pretty smart. But this is the World Friggin' Series we're talking about. Granted, we didn't care that it was cold, wet and late. But show some respect, y'all. Even if people across the country weren't wrapped up in the Series, you can do an NFL Midseason Report every year. America, it seems, can only see a Phillies Win! cover every four scores. (If a score is seven years, like I think it is but am too lazy to open another window to google it to fruition.)

On account of the Thursday night Broncos/Browns game, the football picks are up here a day early. May they bring you much amusement-only, well, amusement.

A score is twenty years, hence the "four score and seven years ago" = 87 years...1863-87=1776

Nice, so then the correct line would have been, "America, it seems, can only see a Phillies Win! cover every 1.4 scores."
Hope Australia's treating you well, mathlete.
