I've been M.I.A. lately due to being sickly. I had a pretty bad fever that lasted far longer than I was really comfortable with, amongst other symptoms. Anyway, I'm feeling much better now.
I did not let my illness keep me from watching games though. And actually, feverish delirium only intesifies my insane superstitiousness, apparently. On Saturday the Tampa newspaper endorsed John McCain, and then the Rays lost. I was conviced (still am) that these two events were NOT mere coincidence. Baseball players may be conservative, generally, but I'm pretty sure the Baseball Gods are NOT. So on Sunday, right before the first pitch, I dragged myself to the computer to make another donation to the Obama campaign, but this time, all the while I was filling out the form, I chanted "Go Rays Go...Go Rays Go..."
Then the Rays won.
This has done nothing but encourage my insanity, I'm afraid.
