Superstitious Sports Stats

The guys in the booth announcing college and pro football games (maybe it's baseball too, but I don't watch) are getting really weird with their obscure "what if" and "did you know" scenarios.

  • "Brett Favre is 21 and 4 in home games after losing a previous game that fell on one of his relatives birthdays."
  • "The Gators are 12 and 2 against Georgia when the Gators have had a bye week prior to the classic match-up, provided the temperature was above 72 degrees."
  • "LaDainian Tomlinson averages 4.5 yards per carry in games that follow an evening of mild passion. With the way he's running today, Bill, it looks like he may have been involved in an orgy last night. Heh, heh."

  • Then there’s the jinx stat:

    “You know John, (insert running back here) has gone (x) games without a fumble.”

    Oh, why did he have to go and say that.

  • "(insert goalie here) is just (insert time) minutes away from his (1st,2nd,3rd,xth) shutout of the year".....doh!

    What's worse,though, is that unbelievably informative tart on the sidelines that tells me at the beginning of the 3rd quarter in football that the coach of the team that is losing told her (in that oh-so exclusive fashion) that "we need to adjust our defense" and "convert our posssessions to points on the board".....I miss Cosell. Say what you will about him...the man was entertaining.

    "look at that little monkey go!"
