Welp...that one sucked. Perhaps I should've delayed my Games We Wish We Had Back, as this game would have been an ideal candidate for that list. But, unlike mentioning a perfect game or a no-hitter in baseball, I don't believe that I jinxed us out of the win. If anything jinxed us, as Joe from TheKeyPlay pointed out, Mr. Beamer didn't get the memo about the Maroon Effect game.
But in actuality, it wasn't some weird curse or ritual that lost us this one. In a week where ESPN ran a film about Bill Buckner and a Billy Goat curse for the Red Sox and Cubs, we ran into a buzz-saw. That's about the long and short of it.
