That's pretty naive - there are millions of people who follow baseball but don't post in the Cafe. To say that when someone posts in the Cafe, the streak ends, is just ridiculous. There is always someone who mentions something about a no-hitter in a game before you do, and before anything gets posted in the Cafe.
Atmosphere: This is not a flame, it's more of a "see the big picture" post. I have to tell myself this too sometimes, when a friend says something about a shutout when watching a hockey game, and then a goal is scored. It wasn't his call, since someone else somewhere else mentioned it first.
