That old Opening Day angst

It was Opening Day in baseball yesterday, which for the Blob meant the ceremonial Donning Of The Roberto Clemente Jersey, and for fans of the Chicago Cubs a moment of wrenching dismay when they realized they weren't going to go 162-0 this year just because of all that ending-the-jinx nonsense.

Final score last night: The Evil St. Louis Cardinals 4, Our Brave Lads 3.

Possible fan reactions: I KNEW it! Last year was just an elaborate setup for THE MOST SOUL-CRUSHING LETDOWN OF THEM ALL!

Also, Kris Bryant went hitless and struck out three times.

Possible fan reaction: I KNEW it! We brought him up too early! He should have STAYED IN THE MINORS FOR MORE SEASONING!

And so on. And so on.
