Need your help here, SoSG readership, pronto.
For NLDS Game 3, I wore this shirt to the game. It's a great shirt; worn enough over the years so that it's soft and comfortable (tagless back also helps), simple and traditional design in the front; and the gray and blue colors go with anything. I love this shirt, so much so that even a small hole near the front right hasn't caused me to pitch it into the rag pile just yet. I've worn this t-shirt all over the world to proclaim my Dodgers love.
Anyway, as you know from the scorecards (if not from the post-game wrap-up that I have not yet published, nor written), we won Game 3 in a big way. That game was awesome, a true drubbing.
So I came home Sunday night, and I didn't wash the shirt; I didn't want to lose any of the shirt's mojo. I instead set this shirt aside on a chair to rest. And then I wore that shirt again to NLDS Game 4, and of course, I was there to see this amazing game and we won Game 4 in dramatic fashion.
Game 4 was magical. This shirt, potentially, is magical.
So I took off the shirt after I got home from Game 4 and put it aside to rest again.
Now, on the eve of NLCS Game 1, the shirt is now beckoning. It is getting a little stinky, having been worn two days in a row and having sat through almost eight hours of game time; nine large beers, one pizza, and two Dodger Dogs across two games; and countless points of elation and despair followed by more elation.
Here's my question. Should I:
- a) wear the unwashed shirt to watch NLCS Game 1 at home tonight;
- b) wear the shirt, but first wash the shirt, to get rid of the NLDS mojo and move to new NLCS mojo, and then watch NLCS Game 1 at home tonight;
- c) don't wear the shirt, washed or unwashed.
What say you, true believers? Decide this shirt's evening fate!
