Elster's World

Responding To An Absurd Charge

In his latest Anti-Elster rant, Joe (http://jschick.blogspot.com/) has attacked some of my recent positive sports posts. He claims that immediately after I write my good vibe works, the wheels come flying right off the team in question. He then goes on to imply that I am somehow responsible for the annual demise of our beloved Jets, Mets and Rangers. To which I reply: Bah!!

Poor Joe - he is the typical New York (non Yankees) sports fan. So many years of rooting for losing franchises has left him so bitter and distraught, that he actually believes that an expression of optimistic have can actually wreck the direction of his sports team. How utterly insane and deluded.

Did my Rangers post http://elstersworld.blogspot.com/2006/03/picking-up-where-they-left-off.html cause the disastrous downhill slide, or was it the push they needed to qualify for the playoffs for the first time in 1,739 years? Did http://elstersworld.blogspot.com/2006/03/jets-update.html make the Jets lose John Runyan to Philly, or did it keep them from overpaying for a 32 year old injury-prone tackle and, therefore, allow them to sign D'brickashaw Ferguson in the draft this year?

I like to think that my positive Karma is bringing a breath of clean air to the smog spewed out by the cold, hard fact - jaded fans such as Joe. So yes, I will take his abuse. I shall martyr myself for the cause. But when the Mets are jumping all over themselves because they just defeated the White Sox in game seven of the World Series, who will be lining up to apologize at my feet? Exactly, no one.

Hey, it's a tough job but someone needs to do it.

  • Elster writes that Jon Runyan is "injury-prone."

    Runyan has made 144 consecutive starts - each and every game since 1997.

    Elster calls me "deluded." Clearly, the opposite is the case.

  • I hope you know, Elster, that Bellanny is not amongst our people, so be careful around her. She appears to be a Devils fan and a Yankees fan.

  • We don't bite. What's sports without the rivalry. I may be guilty as charged, but it doesn't mean I don't enjoy following good teams (like this year's Mets team).
