Gratuitous Pat Robertson-esque Analysis (Or: For Those Who Don’t Like Sport, We Have Sport)

From the Denver Post:

Rockies first baseman Todd Helton celebrates the Game 4 win in the National League Championship Series at Coors Field on Monday night. “ROCKIES WIN THE PENNANT – NL champion Colorado, on 21-1 roll, dashes toward first Series”

So, what does this have to do with ENDA?

Well…

Earlier this year, Colorado enacted a trans-inclusive civil rights law. Now: Its heretofore-joke-of-a-baseball-team makes it to the World Series.

2005: Washington enacts a trans-inclusive civil rights law; the Seattle Seahawks make it to the Super Bowl for the first time (they don’t do so well there, but follow me on this)

2005: Illinois passes a trans-inclusive civil rights law (which takes effect in Jan. 2006); the Chicago White Sox win the World Series for the first time in my lifetime (beating the team from the purported home state of the sitting Bigoted-Nutcase-in-Chief)

Now, if I was Crazy Uncle Chuckles, I would neglect to mention that Iowa enacted a trans-inclusive civil rights law this year – and the Iowa Hawkeyes aren’t doing all that well (though they did beat Illinois last weekend.) Hurricanes, shmurricanes. Baaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!

Still – I’m just sayin’…..

    Ouch…
    Hey…I’m an Astros fan.

    So am I, Monica of the Air. I sat out in the outfield cheap seats during the 1970s – when you could have loooooooooong, uninterrupted conversations with the Astros outfielders.

    However, there was a reason their new stadium was initially called ‘Enron Field’.

    Well, I’m still smarting over the fact that my beloved New York Mets folded late in the stretch and didn’t make the playoffs this year.

    I dunno, the Nats have always been such a pushover for the Mets (most of the season anyway)…if winning a trans-inclusive ENDA meant they’d actually start playing decent baseball I might have to think that one over… 😛

    Becky, you do realize that the other two people (I assume I can speak for Monica on this) who have posted on this thread thus far have not-so-fond memories of the Mets from 1986? 🙂

  5. Rebecca Juro says:

    Oh then you’re really going to love me now. Thanks to a connected uncle, my brothers and I were in the front row at Shea along the third base line for the 7th game of the ’86 series. My Dad got to see the 6th game and the famous Mookie Wilson single through Buckner’s legs from the same seats. That game is probably the single fondest baseball memory of my life.

    Nooooo not sports! *hides*

    “That game is probably the single fondest baseball memory of my life.”

    Other than sneaking into old Arlington Stadium (Texas Rangers) and going out onto the field to take some photos (all of this having taken place, I feel the need to point out, NOT during a game – but during Dubya’s ‘ownership’ of the team), mine is predicting a grand slam when I took my niece to see a Royals game at KC this summer.

    So I guess I shouldn’t mention I was an All-Star catcher in high school?
