So the A’s hate my birthday. It’s official. I think of the Birthday Curse every single year at this time, since every single major milestone birthday ends in tears when the A’s are in the postseason.
Let’s examine the evidence, shall we?
The A’s lost the game and the series that day. I turned sixteen.
The A’s lost the game and would go on to lose the series. I turned twenty-five.
The A’s lost the game and the series. I turned thirty.
Just thought I'd share for anyone still following the playoffs on AN. As much as I wish that the A’s were still playing, I still must admit how much I like the playoffs so far. The Rockies have captivated my attention in a way that no NL team ever has before, and I surprised myself with how hard I cheered for Cleveland during bonus baseball last night. Two extra inning games out of four played so far. We’re getting our money’s worth.
The ALCS picks up again on Monday night in Cleveland, but the NLCS goes to game three tonight in Colorado, where barring a comeback by the Diamondbacks, the Rockies are rolling all the way to the World Series.
Game time is at 5:37pm
