Causation? Correlation? Coincidence? You decide.
On 10/01/04, I had surgery on my left shoulder for a rotator cuff injury. Shortly thereafter, the Red Sox went on their legendary postseason tear, culminating in their frist World Series victory in 86 years.
On 03/02/07 (today), I had surgery on my left foot for tarsal tunnel syndrome. And Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched his first preseason game for the Red Sox as the buzz on the 2007 Red Sox season commences.
Ergo, the Red Sox will win the World Series this year. You’re welcome.
