Did Obama Jinx The Tigers?

This was just brought to my attention:

Obama Says He Kinda Hopes the Tigers Win the World Series

President Obama appeared on the Tonight Show last night where he admitted that he’s leaning toward rooting for the Detroit Tigers in the World Series. And what a real slap in the face this is to San Francisco, which has practically bankrolled his 2012 presidential campaign.

His words exactly:

“I will say, I’ve spent a lot of time in Detroit lately, and I didn’t want to let Detroit go bankrupt. So in this particular World Series, I might be a little partial,” Obama said in comments taped before the Tigers lost the opening game of the series to the San Francisco Giants.

The Obama Touch strikes again. The SF Giants crushed the Detroit Tigers hopes and dreams again last night, taking a 3-0 game lead in the best-of-seven series. Game Four is tonight at 5:00 pm, with Matt “Big Sugar” Cain taking the mound for the Giants. If the Giants win any one of the next four games they win the World Series – the Tigers gotta win all four.

Sorry, Detroit, better luck next year.

  6. yttik says:

    Well Obama certainly jinxed it for me! I didn’t even care about the world series, but since Obama said he was rooting for Detroit, I’ve been watching and rooting for SF.

    Are the Tiger fans waving the white flag?

    • ME says:

      I was in HS when this came out and I had his CD. I loved his Born Free song even before it was a Romney campaign song. Now I guess you can assume how old I am. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Dayum — the Obama campaign is going even more badly than we know — all the rats are jumping off the ship.

    When you’ve lost UT San Diego . . .

    Good Judge Jeanine rant…..

    • DandyTiger says:

      Love a good rant.

    • leslie says:

      Either comcast was ht by Sandy – of they didn’t like this rant. I have had difficulty playing anything remotely critical of Obama online tonight. (I know, I’m probably being paranoid. But it doesn’t eliminate the possiblity that comcast is watching.)

      • leslie says:

        okay, after 3 tries, I finally made it past the 1:05 pont to hear the rest of the video. Good for Judge Jeanine. I wonder if those gentlemen she named also vote.

    Clearly, Ann is trying to undo the Obama Hex….

  22. DM says:

    When the Giants come to town, it’s bye, bye, baby!

  23. DM says:

    Wrong team with the bye, bye.

  24. Glennmcgahee says:

    checking in to see if the clown’s ok. Need hats DM.

  25. threewickets says:

    Looks like Sandy’s might break up some before it gets worse. It’ll dump a lot of rain for sure, but don’t know about these storm surge warnings for the coast. Better to be safe I guess.

    Robert Samuelson over at WaPo has a good write-up refuting the NYT editorial.

  27. myiq2xu says:

    These Air Force people sing like shit!

  28. Simofish says:

    Who picked that group? Did they not listen to them?

    I can’t sing either !

  29. myiq2xu says:

    Maybe I wasn’t clear – I can’t take another night of this shit!!!

  30. myiq2xu says:

    My sanity is already hanging on a very fragile thread.

  31. I just don’t think you should have to wear fur and gloves at a Baseball game

  32. Simofish says:

    DM – you live in SF? Wanna go to a game next year with us?

  33. DM says:

    3 outs away.

  34. Simofish says:

    Well, let me know. I don’t care what team anyone plays for…..

  35. Simofish says:

    …..I play for the SF Giants !!!

  36. DandyTiger says:

    Holding my breath

  37. DM says:

    Giants win it!!!

  38. myiq2xu says:

    Tough call but Sergio Romo deserves the MVP

  39. DM says:

    SF sounds as if it’s the 4th of July

  40. Erica says:

    Yeah SF. Civic center is going crazy! (so you don’t have to, MyIQ)

  41. DM says:

    This World Series makes up for the other losses the SF Giants had so many times in the past.

    • DM says:

      The Giants dominated with that sweep. The 2010 win was fantastic. For some reason I find this one absolutely stunning.

  42. DM says:

    Sandoval is MVP — Congratulations to the Kung Fu Panda!

  43. piper says:

    Congrats to the Giants on their winning the world series.

  44. Simofish says:

    Ok, I think we should have a team building. DM, Erica – who else lives in the Bay Area ? We could meet up for a game next year, Myiq2xu – I know your shy – still invited…… You’re getting my dodger tickets – pick your game.

  45. DM says:

    My cap superstition may not be true, but it felt good to think it was true!

  46. 49erDweet says:

    Any of you that fealt that little tremor awhile ago it was just a couple of Tiger fans campimg in the Pinnacles committing suicide.

  47. myiq2xu says:

    I just woke up (came to) and “The Good Wife ” was on my television. I never saw anything so stupid.

    Some lawyer calls a blogger and warns him about posting defamatory stuff – how did the lawyer know what this guy was gonna post?

    I’m a blogger and I don’t know ahead of time what I’m gonna post!

  48. trist says:

    Ahhh, I see the one hasn’t lost his “touch”!

    Congrats to the Giants! Although, I was more of an A’s fan myself, so it would have been nice if they could have gotten in this year too.

  49. tommy says:

    All quiet on the TCH front. Myiq must have passed out after celebrating the big win.

  50. tommy says:

    The rumour is that a new Battleground/GWU/Politico poll is coming up with R leading by 5 points.
