The comments at the bottom of the article or whatever are hilarious.

I agree.

Wow, now there's a guy who has to be right all the time...

How do you effectively argue with someone like that? Obviously logic wouldn't work. I'm guessing just repeating "it's baseball etiquette" over and over isn't the solution though. ;-7

So was he calling the game last night? ;-7

Btw, everyone on ESPN was commenting on the no-hit bid, and were playing highlights of his perfect game when it was still in the 7th, before it was over.

Also, MLB.com always puts up "So and so perfect through 6" or something if anyone is making a bid.

Postby He who did Wright » Thu Aug 10, 2006 9:11 am

On the Yankees White Sox game Kay was telling a nice story.

During a (very rare) tough stretch for the Yankees, Paul O'Neill said to him something like, "Interview me. Maybe that'll change our luck." After that, O'Neill did every pregame interview the rest of the way, culminating in the Yankees sweeping the Padres in the World Series.

Kay then uttered the following: "You know what the crazy thing is? Paul still didn't want to do the interview, even though he knew it was good luck."

As it should be. ESPN isn't in the business of upholding ridiculous baseball traditions, it's in the business of reporting sports news to its viewers.

I agree...whether or not the guy says he has a perfect game/no hitter doesn't effect anyone on the field. Neither does anyone posting at the Cafe that a guy has a perfect game.

I was watchng the whole game on Yes and I didnt even realize he had a no hittter until the end of the 6th. Kay was definitely low key about it, constantly hinting at it but never really going in depth about it.

Kay was kind of dancing around it, but mentioned it a few times.

I agree with comments in the thread and don't believe in the jinx crap. I just thought it was ridiculous since baseball etiquitte has zero relation, even metaphorically, to slaves and the holocaust.

Until anyone can show me that saying nothing gets a no-no or a perfect game 100% of the time and saying something always jinxes it, I see nothing wrong with an announcer, channel, news outlet mentioining it.
