Picture_403Why is there a giant blue diaphragm traipsing around RFK Stadium? And why does it have a face and a bow-tie? Let’s chalk it up to things that make you go "Hmmmm…"

Evil_eye_3Ok, if you’ve been reading this here blog for a while, you know I’ve got one deep-seeded cultural superstition: The Evil Eye. Well, the old EE reared its ugly head in our final game against Pittsburgh. Gary and Keith were discussing the on-field action as if a win were an inevitability. Five runs ahead! Against the *******’ Pirates! How could we lose? Yeah, that’s when the Eye’s going to come in and start some mischief.

So when the series against the last-place Nationals came along next, I knew I’d only be satisfied with a sweep. And then, when it started to happen, I got happy. Forgetting, of course, that the Evil Eye has our number this season. So he went and took away Damion Easley. Man, that’s annoying. Not only a bad sprain, but ligament damage too.

Let’s just say I don’t dare look too forward to Endy Chavez’s imminent return.

So, do you think this dude had a date that night with the Fifty Foot Woman?

Picture_404_1 On a completely different note, my former favorte Met Cliff Floyd’s father passed away this weekend, and I just want to say I’m so sorry, Cliffy. I bet many, many Mets fans send out their condolences and keep you in their hearts during this tough time.

    Great call! How could I have missed that? I must have stepped out of the room. Did you happen to hear Keith’s rant about the bathroom? I don’t remember what night it was–maybe the final game against Pittsburgh? “I’m so out of breath. The bathroom is so far from the booth” (or something to that effect). Another Hernandez classic.
