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."

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.
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.
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.
