Today is Friday the 13th - probably the most Superstitious day of the year.
I'm a very superstitious person - especially when it comes to softball and baseball, specifically the Mets.
I believe in the softball/baseball gods - they exist and should always be respected or suffer the consequences.
The Number One thing the softball gods always punish is people who talk trash.
It's bad karma and luck to talk trash, not to mention classless.
Here are a few examples on how the baseball and softball gods exact revenge :
Jimmy Rollins a stud player on the Phillies talked trash that the Phillies were the team to beat - and guess what happened - he makes a game losing error on opening day against the Mets.
The baseball gods even teased him as he hit 2 homers last night but his team still lost.
The Softball gods are ruthless as well.
One year on opening day I was on a new team in a new league and we were on fire for 6 innings leading the game by a score of 5-2 and then I opened my mouth by saying "We are going to take the league by storm". Next thing you know the other team score 4 runs in the bottom of the seventh and left us on the field. Our team never recovered as we didn't even make the playoffs.
So on Friday the 13th I always take a few moments to remember the consequences of betraying my superstitions. Do the right thing our softball/baseball's version of Jason from the horror movie will make you pay.
Holler Back with any superstitions you might have.
