SoSG Readers, on Jinxes

Baseball players have superstitions. Baseball bloggers have superstitions (see our Game Threads). Charley Steiner? Not so much. From Saturday's game thread:

Dusty Baker said...
"Easy play for Manny." -Steiner
Let's not get ahead of ourselves.

quick nobody mention anything about the pen being good.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...
Steiner: You know, Julius Caesar has never been stabbed once in his life? Oh wait, hang on, he's being stabbed 23 times!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...
Steiner: The Hindenburg has never collapsed in its history of flight...wait, it's collapsing right now! Oh, the humanity!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...
Steiner: No president has ever been assassinated in Ford Theater...wait, John Wilksbooth has just killed Lincoln! There goes the Ford Theater's perfect record of living presidents!

Hopefully we get a front page billing for something less infamous next time. I'm still disgusted hours later.

I loved the entire "We've never" schtting schtick MLASF was putting out there.
It eased the pain.

President Kennedy has safely driven in a convertible every day of his presidency so far. And there's a shot from the book depository. . .or was it the grassy knoll? I'm not sure, but the president's streak is over.

You knew it was going to be bad when Charlie started the radio broadcast with, "It's a beautiful day for baseball...

...somewhere. But not here in Pittsburgh."

Josh S. said...

Sorry...Charley. I always forget he spells it that way.

Charley spoiled Chad's no-no the other day, as well...
