“You’re right!  We’re going to kick their butts today!”

Very superstitious - writing's on the wall
Very superstitious - ladder’s ‘bout to fall

A li’l boost for the underdogs out Milwaukee way today.

Very superstitious - nothin' more to say
Very superstitious - the devil's on his way
Thirteen month old baby broke the lookin' glass
Seven years of bad luck, good things in your past

Well Stephen, neither of us gets to see our team in the Series.

The Phillies and D-Backs will belly up to the bar next to the Yankees and watch the pennant race on TV!

Yep. It was sad to see such a remarkable D'Backs season come to an end.

And not that I'm superstitious or anything, but something told me I should have used the studio recording of Stevie's "Superstition" in this blog bit instead. Uhp! I'm an idiot!

Oh well, we'll get 'em next time.
"Wait 'til next year!"

You know, that's the first time I have seen the Gibson home run.Nonetheless, I won a hundred dollars on that hit as well as a lifetime of notariety.

I hope they make lots of touchdowns!

Well, you were blessed in having been allowed "a different perspective on it".

While I do appreciate the good wish, I'm afraid it comes a bit late: they lost by two field goals and a basket at the buzzer.
