My day has started out really well, and there’s no reason to expect that anything bad will happen. I may have just jinxed myself by saying that, or at least that’s what some folks believe. Like the old baseball superstition that says, if your pitcher is throwing a no-hitter, you don’t point it out to him, or he’ll blow it. In the late innings of such a game, everyone avoids him, nobody says anything to him, lest anyone say something about the game he’s pitching.
A few years back, Randy Johnson was pitching against the Braves and he threw a perfect game: he faced 27 batters and got all of them out, with no on getting on base. It was quite a sight to see, even if it was against my team. You could tell that the fans that were there were really getting into it. Sometimes you just have to tip your cap to them when they beat you like that.
Well, that’s where my stream of consciousness took me. What about yours?
