I was going to write a quick blog post to say “HEY! SOX FANS! JON LESTER IS THROWING A PERFECT GAME!”
I had no thoughts about me spoiling it because… well… I don’t believe that I affect the game being played in Seattle while sitting in my kitchen in South Pasadena, California.
Just as I was typing, center fielder Eric Patterson dropped a fly ball to spoil the perfect game.
Then Michael Saunders hit a 2 run homer to spoil the no hitter, the shutout AND the lead.
Maybe I do have some effect.
I apologize to Jon and his family.
