Sports Illustrated's Georgetown Mistake

Camille Powell posted yesterday about the Hoyas' locker room reaction to DaJuan Summers's Sports Illustrated (regional) cover this week, but as the commenters noted, the greatest thing about that cover is that his first name is spelled wrong. As seen here. Does it now become a collector's item? I mean, more of a collector's item than your typical DaJuan Summers (regional) cover?

A handy reminder to national magazine copy editors: "U before A, just about every day, except after P, which works for Gasol, or in 'FAU,' which will probably brawl."

[EDIT: Yeah, I guess I was thinking of FIU. Kind of ironic to make such a mistake in an item making fun of others for making mistakes. Ok, try "U before A, just about every day, except after P, which works for Gasol, or in 'FAU," a state school that's not small."]

The Georgetown message board folk are wondering whether a misspelled name counteracts the SI jinx, but the Hyoas managed to have a pretty good tuorney run after Ryo Hibbert's (regional) cover turn last spring, so I wouldn't [worry] too too much. Meanwhile, let me be the first to nominate Nikita Mescheriakov for next spring's (regional) cover.

Look at the small print towards the bottom.
