I Call JINX!

Oh, boy…I just took a moment to read through the Brewers version of the “Game Preview” for tomorrow night’s game against St. Louis. Keep in mind, the Cardinals are 5 1/2 games behind the Brewers as of today.

Apparently, the Brewers beat writer is more concerned with talking about the promotion night at the ballpark than he is writing about the actual upcoming game between the Cards and Brewers. He describes, at length, how the Brewers will host a special pregame celebration honoring the members from the 1982 World Series Brewers team. The Brewers haven’t made an appearance in the playoffs in the 25 years since that World Series (remember, they were in the American League, then). Clearly the Brewers organization is feeling so thrilled and confident about being in first place this year, they’ve organized the celebration and even scheduled a 45 minute autograph session with former 1982 players such as Paul Molitor and Rollie Fingers.

It’s interesting to point out that the Brewers were actually ahead 3 games to 1 in that World Series before coughing up the lead and ultimately losing to the comeback champions of the 1982 baseball world. Who was that mystery team that came from 2 games down to defeat the Brewers? Well, who else? The 1982 World Series Champions…the St. Louis Cardinals.

Way to go Brew-Crew…don’t you think it’s bad karma to schedule the celebration on the very day you’re playing the team with a very real chance of knocking you out of first place AND who just HAPPENS to be the same team that beat you in that World Series…from behind????
