Going into tonight's game, I figured the odds were in our favor. I mean, seriously, what are the mathematical chances someone throws 2 perfect games in a row?
But I will admit, I ALMOST started getting a little nervous there for awhile.
I had faith though. I never really even doubted we would would win.
Because I had a secret weapon. Not being willing to completely trust the odds that Buehrle couldn't toss 2 perfectos in a row, I brought out the big guns.
That's right. Buehrle, you might be nearly perfect, but even YOU cannot withstand the awesome magical power that is artificially flavored frozen Cotton Candy confections.
I downed a cup of Cotton Candy Itti Bitz in a fog of superstition-fueled desperation, and finished it off just before 1st pitch, as tradition dictates.
And lo, the legend of fake frozen Cotton Candy goodness lives on.
In order to keep the magic fresh and reliable, I have to save it for very special situations. I am terrified of wearing the magic out with overuse. I'm very glad I picked this game though. Otherwise things could have gotten embarrassing.
You're welcome, Twins.
What sort of magical frozen treat do you think one might use to ward off a trade with evil ugly Oakland?
