I take full responsibility for tonight’s loss to the Minnesota Twins. Not only did I blog earlier today about how good the Red Sox are, but then I had the audacity to show my face at Fenway Park tonight after I’d already jinxed the team. This one’s on me. I shouldn’t have been so brash. I shouldn’t have been so selfish.
During Big Papi’s at bat in the 9th inning, I was fully expecting that he was about to hit a walk off grand slam. I should know better than to demand anything from the baseball gods. It’s just not my place.
The Twins have no right to beat the Red Sox, but I have even less of a right to jinx them. I am solely responsible for this one.
My only solace in this is that at least I am not Brian Dozier.
