Superstitions

May 13, 2010

I’ve had a busy week and haven’t been able to watch the Reds since last Friday’s drubbing against the Cubs.  I sat down to watch the Reds highlights on the news tonight (I knew they won and wanted to see why), Senora Smoke and I began talking about our day…you know the typical married couple stuff.  We watched the highlights and I wondered aloud if the replay would be on tonight.

Then my world came crashing in.

The Senora reminded me I hadn’t watched the Reds since last Friday.  You know the Homer Bailey drubbing.  The last time the Reds lost.

“You wouldn’t want to be responsible for the end of the winning streak would you?” she coyly remarks (she doesn’t like watching the Reds every night by the way…I can’t figure out why.)

Doggone it! She struck the one cord that will keep me from watching at least a portion of an Reds game….Superstition!

[Stevie Wonder immediately starts running through my head…]

So as a dedicated Reds fan, I declare here tonight, I will not watch the Reds again until they lose!  I must do it for my team!  I will do it for my team!

Bring on the Cardinals and rip ’em apart Reds!  I’ll be watching…uhh, listening!
