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.
