I Made It Snow
Every sports fan or gambler knows that you don’t celebrate an outcome until the game has gone final. Well, based on that theory, last night, I made it snow.
I believe in jinxes. If I have the under in a football game, and it’s 7-7 in the 3rd quarter, I know that you don’t celebrate before the final whistle, because inevitably both teams will score 3 times in the 2nd half, pushing the game way over. If the Mets are up 4 in the 9th, I don’t celebrate until the final out is made, especially since K-Rod sucks in non-save situations.
As many of you know, I am a golf fanatic. The worst part of the winter for me is not the driving or shoveling, it’s the lack of playable golf in the Capital Region. Yesterday at 4:15pm EST, it was pouring rain outside and the snow was melting faster than I could belive. I was getting excited. I sent a text message to my roommate (another golf enthusiast) who was home on Long Island for the weekend. The text read:
“It’s raining and the snow is melting faaast. If we could get a week of sunshine we’d be damn close to golfing.”
I wasn’t thinking, people. Within the next hour, the rain turned to ice falling from the sky, covering everything, including my dreams of teeing them high and letting them fly. For my indiscretions, I apologize, and will suffer with the rest of you until we can golf in late April.
