WHY DID HE HAVE TO WRITE THIS?!?!?!?!?

http://insider.espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/ ... ayoffs-mlb

For those who are not ESPN Insiders, here's the title of the article:

Bucs a near playoff lock
The Pirates' strong start all but guarantees them a spot in October

I don't hate him because I didn't know who he was until now.

Also, while the Vader 'Nooooo!' is classic, nothing beats:

I keep hoping no one on Sports Reporters mentions their good season. That has been the kiss of death as well.

2009, Bob Ryan mentioned them when they were 11-7 to start the season.

2011, someone mentioned them in the cold opening.

2012, Jemelle Hill talked them up sometime in July.

Yup. Because sports fandom and posting on a message board as a supercharged ape is nothing if not "rational."

So you're saying nothing ever posted on a message board is rational? We did this a few years back on the steelers board, when someone wrote about the steelers being guaranteed a win over San Diego. And then they beat San Diego. I don't care if Writer A pens an article mapping out the parade route, it means nothing.

No. I'm saying superstition, while irrational, is not exactly a far cry in that department from sports fandom, which involves forging an emotional connection to a group of people you don't know who play a game, or posting anonymously on a message board concerning same. That's all.

Yeah but then they actually play the games. I think jinxes are indeed a far cry from that.

FINE. Let's just say I'm both rationally AND irrationally concerned about the possibility of Epic Collapse III and articles like this make me nervous. Good enough?
