I want to hear the words - "no hitter".

Jinx people are fine with euphemisms, but I don't want no euphemism - I want hard hitting journalism!


The jinx only applies if the team, their broadcasters, or their fans doing it says it aloud.

Oh good, Solis is warming up. I was afraid this game might actually be competitive in the next couple innings

Don't worry, Kelley is coming back soon. He gave up a homer in his rehab start tonight so he's ready.

So if you're watching your team being no hit do you've ever root for the other pitcher just to see a no hitter?

What happens if one of the opposing pitchers steps on the foul line walking off the field?  Does this offset the "no hitter" utterance? 

Somebody needs to document the hierarchy of jinx dominance so we know what takes precedence.

Correct answer. I root against them to the very last out.

No, I call for the bunt for hit.

Wow, that was a nice night for his first time back.

I'm betting Dusty throws him two more innings, just to make sure his arm is injured again.

Lose your bat like that and you should spend the rest of the AB without it.

:shock:


:spit:

I never understood the logic of why my team should selectively remove offensive tools from its arsenal because the other guy is dominating us.  To the contrary, we should be pulling every trick I've got to make something happen.

Baltimore trash rolled through and put out the fire that was starting.
