So I was unable to watch the opening series of the season, mainly because I was vacationing in Europe. As everyone knows, they then rattled off a series sweep of the Astros. Then I was back in town, but unable to watch them in the first game against the Braves. Finally, in the second game of the Braves series, I was able to sit down and watch the Giants... And they got smoked.
Sunday I had tickets to the avalanche season finale and was unable to watch them, and then my free preview of Extra innings was up. Of course they won last night.
So the Giants are now 6-0 when I am unable to watch them, and 0-1 in games I've watched. A sample size of 7 is clearly a big enough sample size.
I feel like the character of a modern day Greek tragedy. Watch the Giants, feel the agony of defeat. Don't watch, they win but I am unable to experience the joy that comes with that. At least the Avs in the playoffs will keep me occupied for a couple series.
