I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.
Yeah, let THAT be the reason.
Weaver's back! Unfortunately...
Superstition. The implication that the universe is run by an omnipotent agent who metes out punishment and rewards.
These are the hallmarks of the religious mind.
That's okay, son! You can do it - ON THE BOAT!
Hmmm. I do not support the Mariners. They do not support my community so why should I support them?
@5 - Gee!
Is that a definition or a point of view?
Can I come up with one too?
I'm with #1. What?
to Mr Poe
Honey, isn't our son swell?
Darling, isn't LIFE swell?
I apparently don't watch enough tv or baseball to get this post.
I must say, I do so love how superstitious sports fans and athletes are. It tempts me to put my two black kitties on leashes and walk them back and forth under ladders in front of Safeco Field.
I hear ya, Dan. Though it's nice to see the extra hub bub. Mariner's Monday didn't mean shit besides a flat shutout, and Tuesday's Mojo wasn't much more than a boner that quickly chubbed.
My thing though: Sure, come down and check out an important series during the beginning of the stretch - it's fun, yell "Throw it back!" (and fucking throw it back, ya shit-for-fuck), but for chrissakes, they're called RUNS not POINTS.
Dan, you obviously follow baseball and local TV much more than we do.
Talking about bad luck is bad luck.
Superstition is part of baseball. The folks in my section often ban articles of clothing...and sometimes people...that bring bad luck to the team. I have several hats that are no longer allowed.
Dan, did you get the bill for playoff tickets? Playoff tickets for our four seats would be 1500 more than our four seats cost for half season tickets ( we have the weekend package). And they included a one game "tie breaker"...as they have in the past but that's a lot of money for a game that is not likely to be played (the mariners have had one tie breaker game in their history). Do the math. It's a million bucks in ticket sales for a ghost game.
@11 - Could you describe the ruckus, sir?
Check your quotes.
I was just in my office and I heard a ruckus!
Don't mess with the bull young man, you'll get the horns!
I have to grab a conf call.
No more TBC quotes for me.
P.S. I understand this post now, Dan. But it's missing some serious random TBC quotes. For shame!
the second base umpire rubbed my foot in the stalls near section 186 before the game.
@21 That was no umpire. That was a Senator in baseball drag. Umpires would not be caught dead in the bleachers
Mr. Poe sneaks in a Breakfast Club reference. Good job.
SMOKE UP JOHNNY!
I'm annoyed at the fact that I've been going to games this whole season and where I've been parking is now full by people who have just decided to support the team.
Don't get me wrong I'm happy we're rallying behind the boys, but damn, where were you at the beginning of the season?
Uh... Is this the one with the puck, or the one with the goal posts? Are there cheerleaders? I forget.
the funny thing is "mojo rising", sodo mojo, etc are all allusions to an erection. stupid sports marketing agencies! jim morrison made the phrase popular in the doors song "l.a. woman".
Neither. It just is.
Yeah, what you said, only back to you.
How nice for you. How nice for her. How nice for everybody!
What the hell is that from?
Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night!
Is that you, Bette Davis?! I thought your tits got the best of you!
I agree, Dan. All the rah rah shit had bad vibes written all over it the second it started, and go figure the team started shitting the bed right afterward.
