When was the last time you tried to Google something, and the information didn't seem to exist online in any format?
The A's are cursed, and here's the proof: not only are the A's 0-9 in their last nine chances to clinch an ALDS game, they are also 0-9 in their last nine playoff coin flips. Odds against that? 1 in 262,144.
I remember when I was a kid, the Oakland Raiders had a coin-flip specialist, Warren Bankston. He would get visions of the coin flip during the week, and then proceeded to call correctly about 17 coin flips in a row.
Anybody else remember that story? It was a long time ago. I'm not sure if I remembered it correctly, so I tried to Google it. I found nothing, except the fact that Bankston correctly called the coin flip in Super Bowl XI.
Wherever Bankston is, the A's should look him up and hire him. He's gotta be better than whoever it is they have calling their coin flips now.
Then again, if they're cursed, I guess it doesn't matter.
