Wouldn't it be Nice

Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray it might come true
Baby then there wouldn't be a single thing we couldn't do
We could be married
(to the post season)
And then we'd be happy

Wouldn't it be nice

You know it seems the more we talk about it
It only makes it worse to live without it

But let's talk about it

Wouldn't it be nice

Beating up on the hapless A's is one thing. Looking ahead to AL East divisional battles is another, similar thing. I'm going to apply the Uncertainly Principle here and say if this happens, if the Jays can suddenly, miraculously shrug off 4 other teams and somehow wrest control of the wildcard, I'm going remain safely distant. Not because I'm a chicken shit frontrunner, although I just might be. However improbable, mind boggling as it is, it is still possible. I can't allow my game enjoyment be hampered by an ulcerous, life-shorteningly failed stretch run.

I promise not to scoreboard watch ONCE until my birthday, September 14th. I will not direct any (additional) ill-wishes towards the Yankees, Sox or Rays. I am swearing to myself here and now NOT to beg for a Rangers Pythagorean correction.

I sure hope it happens, but in the meantime I have much bigger fish to fry.
