Ahh, memories. Foggy, crusty, old memories.
I’m not a particularly superstitious person. In fact, if you’ve read this site for any length of time you probably could guess what I think of most– if not all– superstitions. When the Jays opened the season, for the Game Threat, I Photoshopped an image of Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion onto the heads of Joe Carter and Rickey Henderson lifting the World Series trophy in 1993. When a Facebook user wrote, “bad omen idiots,” I snarkily responded, “Oh yes, my magical powers of deciding baseball championships through shitty Photoshops has destroyed the Jays.”
Now, obviously I’m right about that. Obviously. I don’t have magical powers of deciding baseball championships through shitty Photoshops.
However, there was something else that I did in that post– that I did a few times during the spring, in fact. And that I did knowing– and intentionally spitting in the face of– the rummy coincidence it was connected to from back in the early days of the blog.
I wrote about it the first time back on May 11th, 2007, following the Jays’ having fallen to a ninth straight loss the night before.
