My Stream Is Yours #socs

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?

  1. I like your graphic art. I watched a no hitter and told my husband ‘that was so boring,’ because there was no action. Ha,ha. I know it was exciting for the baseball fans.


    1. I found the graphics on Pixabay, where I get all my pictures and graphics (for the most part).

      Do you remember ballgames in the ’60’s, where scores of 1-0 and 2-1 were a pretty regular thing? Pitchers dominated the game so much that they lowered the mound, hoping for more offense. I remember Carl Yastrzemski winning the AL batting title with a .301 average. He was the only person in the league with a batting average over .300…

  2. Yep. My guys are facing yours. Of course I’m hoping for my Giants but yesterday went to yours! Both good teams this year. I’ll never forget the time Randy Johnson was playing for Arizona and they were playing against the Giants when there was a “bench clearing brawl” and caps went flying. Randy Johnson put a Giants cap on his head!

    1. Randy Johnson was one of those guys who just looked like trouble. I remember he scared the hell out of John Kruk, and a year later did the same to Larry Walker. He wasn’t throwing at them, but seeing the ball come at you that fast would put the fear of God into you… He was a tremendous pitcher, and it looks like he ended his career with the Giants. Maybe it was prophetic….
