3/31/11-Opening Day-Curse of 42
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I thought this day would never come. Baseball is finally back!!!!
I realize that there has been Spring Training games going on for the past month and a half, but as I stated in a previous entry, it’s not my thing.
As I was sitting on the couch today watching the first game of the season(Yankees Vs. Tigers), I couldn’t help but think of the number 42. Why? Well, I don’t know if you have noticed, but it involves Mariano Rivera more than just his number. Not only is he number 42, but he currently need 42 saves to pass Trevor Hoffman. He turns 42 this year. And the temperature at the start of today’s game was…..you guessed it; 42 degrees.
It is unreal how many times the number 42 is coming up. Coincidence? You tell me…….
OTHER 42′s- NOT YANKEE RELATED
Today the game time temperature in Cincinnati was 42 degrees.
The Brewers’ first two batters hit home runs to start off the season for the first time in 42 years.
I also just realized that I published this entry at 9:”42″. I SWEAR I didn’t do that on purpose. Something is going on with number 42.
-UPDATE # 2-
I just found out that Mariano has 42 career postseason saves.
