You can blame the pitching. You can blame the hitting. You can blame the injuries. You can even blame the coaching managing (hey, I’m still learning, cut me some slack). None of that is the real reason the Tigers are stinking it up the first week of the season. The real reason is because of yours truly.
For some reason I am kryptonite for teams. The last championship I saw was in 2001. I don’t need to talk about the tribulations of the Duke teams since then. And Michigan? Well, I was completely expecting them to be in the MNC race last season and we all know what happened the first two weeks of the season (STILL DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT). So is it really a coincidence that when I finally decide to follow a MLB team they suck for the first six games of the season?
Ok, it probably is. But still, I feel like my bad luck has rubbed off on them. So Tiff, ThistleWarrior, Becky, Yostal, and the rest of the Tigers faithful-I am so sorry. Hey, I’ll become a Royals and White Sox fan. I’m almost certain they’ll start to suck too. Don’t everybody hate the Yankees? I’ll totally root for them now. Because I’m slowly but surely bringing y’all down. And why should you guys suffer for my bad mojo?
