Superstition? You bet

Man, I really need to share this story with you guys. The last game of this series against Orioles started at 3am in the morning on Monday in Sydney. I really can't watch this game live if I want to have enough energy for work at Monday. And then I woke up around 6am for some reasons and decided to turn on my computer in order to check Yankees' score before I headed back to my bed for more sleep.

Guess what? When I turned on my computer, the score was 7-5 which Yankees had a lead and Robertson just got a huge second out of that inning to save a run. At that moment, I told to myself, "See. There is no way I bring bad luck to Yankees every time out, right? Robertson just save a run before my eyes". I decided to stay a little bit longer. As you guys know what happened next, Edwar came in the game and gave up that 2-runs home run to tie the game.

I can't believe my eyes and turned off my computer immediately. I said to myself, "I better not to watch the rest of game in order to give Yankees a chance to win". Guess what? I went to bed and found out Yankees won the game when Cano hit a home run before I left home.

My family just went to Europe for a trip. There is no way my sister is able to watch Yankees game and bring more good luck to balance my bad luck. What do you guys think? Can I watch Yankees' next series against Red Sox? I really want to watch. How about watching ball game, but rooting for Red Sox? I don't know.

Jessica,

You should watch!

This season, nothing has gone according to plan...not even the superstitions! I heard one announcer say "maybe the Yankee ghosts have already moved to the new stadium". Don't worry, the ghosts won't miss the Red Sox series, and neither should you!

I know I don't have too much luck, but I will be there and root for Yankees because it's hard for me not to watch the game as long as I am able to.
