A lot of people don't know this, but there is good voodoo, too - it's not all just sticking pins in a doll to curse someone. Now, this being the Church of Baseball and all, which, by the way, is non-denominational, and voodoo being another religion, I thought I would try positive voodoo today.
These dolls are "handmade and blessed by our wonderful group of local New Orleans Voodoo Practitioners. In New Orleans, we use dolls like these as focusing tools - they help us to enrich our lives with Love, Prosperity, Good Health, and many other positive influences." Oh yeah, and I've added a little touch of mascot with love and care and the irrational, illogical, delusory hope that the stars will align and things will go our way.
So we have to depend on fate or destiny or god or gods or God or coincindence or the stars or something to pull this out, but who knows? Maybe he or she or it or they or He or She or It or They will take a break from the horrors of the world and give us this day our daily win and forgive us our tresspasses.
It's tough to root for the hated Braves, but this weekend I am Braves fan number one. As for the Sausages, go Bill Hall!
