Post-Game 77 Thread: Bad Girlfriend


Look, I know that this girl that I'm dating isn't exactly a perfect match. We've gone on 39 dates now. We've taken weekend trips up to the Bay Area and even ventured behind the Orange Curtain. And tonight, I even took her back home.

But the truth is, she only put out on one of those 39 dates. I mean, it took 33 straight dates before I even had a CHANCE of scoring with her.

But that one time: man, it was awesome, almost euphoric. I remember it well. First I got to second base. After that, I got to third base. I crossed home plate--if you know what I mean (wink wink!)--two times that evening. I know, right? Crazy. Man, that was a beautiful moment in time.

But sure, it got pretty dark right after that. In fact, if I think about the rest of the time in its entirety, it was a pretty dry spell. Actually, REALLY dry. For 38 of those 39 dates.

But really, it's going to turn around soon. I know I'm going to get lucky again soon. I'm a winner, right? I mean, maybe not a first-place winner, but even second place gets some scoring once in a while, right?

I'm going Saturday.

And we're winning, dammit.

Well at least I got to see the last time the Dodgers will be In first place in person.

@NicJ: I wouldn't be so sure about that... I'm betting we will be back in first by season's end

NicJ said...

Really? I can't really see it. I think AZ will end up winning the division unless we get some sort of outside help.

We might win the wild card though.

Well, at least we get to make fun of a guy named Dickey tomorrow. I don't care if he does shut us out, his name's still Dickey.

Add my loss to the sidebar, please.

String of losses piling up, eerily paralleling the Dodgers on-field performance.

Our team is in the shitter, but at least xkcd remains amusing.

Let's play expectation limbo!
