Just a few weeks after Ken Griffey, Jr. was traded away from Cincinnati, tonight he stands at the precipice of the post season. If the White Sox can beat the Twins tonight, it’ll be his first trip to October ball since 1997.
And since I don’t have the good luck of following a decent team, tonight I’m saying a little prayer for Griff:
Oh baseball gods, who art in Cooperstown,
Hear my significantly less sarcastic than usual plea.
Bless Junior Griffey and the titanium screws that hold him together,
And deliver him this day into the ALDS.
