Tonight, after resolving not to watch the A's, I ended up watching a Nova documentary on supervolcanos instead.
And so it was...the Angels lost to Texas, and the A's beat the Seattle Mariners, and clinched the AL West, avoiding the massive choke I feared.
The last time the A's beat their jinxes and won the World Series, there was a massive earthquake in the Bay Area.
Obviously, then, there is a connection between natural disasters and jinxbusting.
So I guess I'll need to make a list like this one of shows to watch during the playoffs.
Anyone think Harden should pitch game one? I guess I should say anyone besides me.
so, for at least a couple more days, my dream of an A's-dodgers world series is still alive!
though, even if it were to happen, i would be unable to fulfill my promise to myself and attend one of the games in person. but i can live with that, i suppose.
anyway, i can't wait for the playoffs now. i wish they were today. i'm actually feeling kind of giddy.
