Yes… I got to be at the Giants game yesterday to watch Timmy pitch a No Hitter! I think it was around the 6th inning when Char leaned over and nervously told me that this was a possibility. Why nervously? Superstition of course. When a pitcher is on the verge of pitching a No Hitter or a Perfect Game… YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT IT because you don’t want to jinx it. If you were listening to the game on the radio or watching it on TV, I’m sure the announcers did not mention it until it actually happened.
So after we knew we might be seeing something great, we held our breath on every pitch… which made that final out so much more exciting.
I went with Terri, Char and Allison from work. The tickets were Secretaries Day/Retirement gift from Terri. Allison had never been to a Giants game, and really never watches baseball. I think she just might have been the good luck charm!
Thank you Terri (and Timmy) for a great day!!
Right after the game I got a text from Bryan and Dave on how exciting the game must have been for me. They too did not want to text earlier in fear of jinxing it. I texted back, “Why… what happened? We left in the seventh inning to beat the commuter traffic.”
I immediately got a call from Bryan, “You better be shitting me that you left early!!”
Yes, of course I was just yanking their chain!
