There’s a story in the Detroit News about the superstitions of the Detroit Tigers. Here’s one of Jose Valverde’s:
“I have a couple of cars, like a Lexus and a Mercedes. If I throw good while I’m driving one car, I stay with that car. I’m driving the Lexus now — and have been since the start of the season. But if I lose two games in a row, I’ll change cars.”
I think that “oh no, I accidentally drove the Mercedes to the ballpark instead of the Lexus” is the quintessential first world problem.
But hey, I’m not hating on Valverde here. As the man said, “If you believe you’re playing well because you’re getting laid, or because you’re not getting laid, or because you wear women’s underwear, or if you’re driving the Japanese luxury car instead of the German luxury car then you ARE! And you should know that!”
