I'm very superstitious when it comes to baseball. For the last 6 years, whenever the Yankees have needed a rally, I've gone to the bathroom - and every time I've gone, the Yankees have successfully rallied. I'm not bullshitting here - I have witnesses. But I needed to change it up this year.
For this year's postseason, I've developed a little mojo-building ritual, wherein, instead of watching the game on TV, I listen to the game on the radio while playing Xbox games. When I do that, the Yankees are 4-0. I missed Game 1 of the Twins series because of rehearsal (loss) and I missed Game 1 of the Sox series because of Eddie Izzard (loss, although Eddie was great).
So it turns out that tomorrow, during Game 3, Rocket v. Pedro, I'm gonna be on a friggin' BUS on the way to my mom's house.
I'm broke as hell, but I might just have to buy a Gameboy to go along with my walkman.
