All Good Things...

No, I'm not talking about the last episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation where Picard "finds himself shifting continually into the past, future and present and must use that to discover a threat to humanity's existence." I'm talking about the Nats Blog winning streak, which at one point, Dexy's thought was a statistically significant cause of the Nats' victories in themselves.

The Nats lost with me in attendance on Sunday.

I'm trying to figure out what changes in karma occurred before or during the game to snap the streak. I went to the game with new people, but the new people thing hasn't hurt before. I got my ice cream of the future a bit early this game, in the fourth inning or so....but that wouldn't seem to cause any shift for or against the Nats (they actually scored via the Spivey homer while I was getting the Dippin' Dots). My only conclusion is that it was....

The Chorizo.

Is the Chorizo bad? !No! Es muy muy bueno. Me gusto el chorizo. In fact, the chorizo, which was SuperNoVa's last, best hope for ballpark food, was a godsend...a lightning bolt from above that said "You may eat good food at RFK!" But finding good food at the ballpark also meant suffering a loss. Could it be that we can enjoy a Nats victory and that we can enjoy a good sausage at RFK, but we cannot do both? The horror.

Speaking of streaks ending, Nick Johnson was injured on Sunday scoring a run. His MRIs - yes, he's had two, say he has a deep bone bruise.

Let's face it folks, we all knew Nick Johnson would get injured. We were living on borrowed time. For some reason, "deep bone bruise" and "out 3 to 7 days" sounds to me like "nagging injury" and "will cause him to miss more games."

Oddly enough, an old classmate of mine who is a Yankee fan was at the game on Sunday and he noted how Nick Johnson was injury prone. He even joked that he came down to see Nick Johnson get injured. Turns out he got what he paid for in that department.
