The Omen II
Having driven down a particular street for years without ever noticing its name, on the day of Game 6 against the Kansas City Royals, he looked up to see the name of the street was "Carlton."
That night Lefty, Steve Carlton, won 4 to 1, with a little help from Tug McGraw.
Today, my old man lives in New York City, and amazingly last Sunday something very similar happened.
He was walking home from a nearby convenience store and took a the back alley shortcut to his condo.
He looked up and saw the name of the street, a name he'd never noticed before.
The name of the street? Mets Blow 7-Game Lead With 17 to Play Avenue.
Is that a coincidence or what?
