Sports Writer Unaware of Sports Fans

I need to get off the internet.

I can't, of course, because doing so might force me to directly interact with other human beings. But if I could, I might have a better chance at avoiding articles like the most recent one from "NBC contributor" Tony DeMarco wherein the author critically wounds the Boston Red Sox's chances of winning the World Series this year by brazenly asserting that the Boston Red Sox will win the World Series this year.

Way to know your readers, DeJinxo. Sports fans are by nature superstitious; Red Sox fans are by nurture quite unhealthily superstitious; ergo, you are a big jerk with a stupid mustache.

Unless, of course, your prediction turns out to be accurate (knock on wood) which case you will be a great guy with a stupid mustache.

Speaking of jinxes, I was recently at Citi Field for a Mets/Yankees game (pulling for the Mets, naturally). Burnett was carrying a no-hitter into the 7th inning, and the crowd was getting excitedly hushed. Suddenly the Yankee fan next to me looked at the scoreboard, sat up and said "Holy shit, Burnett's working a no-hitter!". CRACK! David Wright hits a single at that very moment and spoils it. I laughed my ass off, and the dude got booed by everyone in proximity.
