Remember this day, Royals fans.

The Royals are on a regional cover of Sports Illustrated, which can mean many things.

One, they’re jinxed. You’ve heard about the SI jinx, right?

Two, it’s the start of a new chapter in Royals history.

We will let you decide.

We do know this: Billy Butler’s cover presence marks the second time a Kansas City sports figure has been on SI’s cover in the last month. Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles was the other.
