Petshark: Talking Stick
Entries with the tag: penance
Yesterday I explained why I expected the Sharks to lose in Dallas, including a preposterous theory that every season they will lose six in a row with the last loss being to the Oilers. And still the Sharks lost. What happened to me being usually wrong?
How am I supposed to do this if they change the rules and don’t tell me? It isn’t that I imagine I cause an outcome by speaking of it. I don’t take jinxes that seriously. No, I’ve just always felt like a terrible meteorologist, believing fair weather is coming when really there a big dumping rain storm on the way and vice versa.
I wasn’t heartbroken about last night’s game. My Twitter feed felt differently:
Jon D. Allred @Jon_Allred: “#SJSharks had several chances to win this game. But when they can’t hold a lead or score on a 4-on-3 pp in OT, they didn’t deserve a win.”
