A's to play game one on my birthday

I've often said that what I really want for a gift is for my team to win on my birthday.  Since it's in mid-October, that hope has always been imbued with extra meaning, and of course, has rarely even been a possibility. This year, thanks to the A's, it's going to happen.  

I was afraid they'd schedule this game for daytime (after calling in with "NineInning-gitis" last week, I was loath to take another day off work), but I saw during the Mets/Dodgers game it would be Tuesday at 5pm.  Hallelujah!

Out of superstition I'd better not tell you what I'll be wishing for but my promise to you all is that I will be sure to blow out ALL forty five of the candles on my birthday cake.
