I have Watched, listened to, or otherwise paid close attention to 7 Nashville Predators games this season. I have missed, sometimes to the point of not even knowing a game was happening, 7 Predators games this season.
The Predators record so far this season. 7 wins, 7 miserable losses. Guess which 7 games were the ones I paid attention to.
In the post from October 30th, I said "I need to miss a few predators games." So I did. I paid absolutely no attention to the sports page for a whole week. In that week, they played (though I was unaware of it at the time) against the Vancouver Canucks, the Edmonton Oilers, and the Chicago Blackhawks.
And the beat them all (each by a 3-point margin!), scoring 3, 4, and 5 points in those games, respectively!
Yes, friends... I am proving I am a true Nashville Predators fan by not watching, listening to, or even checking on the score of, a single one of their games.
That being said, I am going to attempt to watch, or otherwise monitor, the their match against the Detroit Red Wings tomorrow evening. I am not sure if I will be able to watch it or not, but those of you who will be watching that game (both of you) will probably be able to tell if I am.
[Update:] Aha... I just figured out how to get around my jinx! I will be watching the game, but I will be rooting against the Preds! That way I can continue my streak of perpetual disappointment, but Nashville's team won't have to suffer for it.
Not that I'm superstitious or anything, 'cuz that's just silly.
Let's (don't) Go, Predators!
