Over the past few weeks, I have been noting a number of statistical oddities and events that are pushing me closer to believing that thee end of the world is truly upon us. A few weeks ago, Ron Artest won the NBA's Sportsmanship Award and the Cleveland Indians have put some voodoo curse on the AL Central to suddenly become a halfway legitimate franchise. Last night, something happened in the American League that hasn't happened in 55 years (aka since 1955): All seven games featured a team that scored the exact same number of runs (5). Four of the teams came out winners while the other three were el stinkos. By no coincidence what so ever, a pentagon has five sides. The Pentagon is the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense. I am not trying to connect the dots or anything, but clearly there is a conspiracy for the US government to infiltrate the professional sporting world in order to prevent the apocalpyse.....or something like that.
