Public Service Announcement

It's only April 10 so I don't expect any of us to be in mid-season form here, but I feel like something needs to be said regarding the jinxing of a no-no.

Dudes, two Tiger pitchers have already had the beginnings of no-hitters going in this young 2010 season, which is pretty awesome. Max Scherzer took one into the 6th the other day, and today Bondo had one into the 4th. Both times someone brought them up in the GameThread, and shortly thereafter, they gave up their first hits of the game.

Don't do it! Don't be THAT PERSON. I know it's exciting when one of the boys is having a great day out there on the mound. But don't say anything about a no-hitter when a guy hasn't allowed any hits, no matter what inning it is. DON'T BE A JINX. Or risk people - and me - blaming you and giving you hell. :)

Thanks, and go Tigers.

If you can't tell I'm approaching this in a lighthearted manner, be assured that I am. I just want to make sure people know these things!
