Last night I made a great sacrifice to the Baseball Gods by burning my sealed 1990 AND 1991 Donruss factory sets (with the puzzle pieces!) and using them as firewood as I danced and hollered around the flames while on peyote, dressed as an Indian with tomahawk in hand. Had I not been on peyote I would have realized just how racist I appeared and that's my excuse if someone happened to be filming me on their iphone without my knowledge.
But anyway, the immense value of those factory sets should be a well enough sacrifice to FINALLY get the Braves past the NLDS and then face off with the Dodgers/Nats in the NLCS. I will have to make an even bigger sacrifice to the Gods right before that series, possibly my 1990 Fleer factory set which currently sells for over $100 grand!
On a more serious note, my uncle died on Sunday so I haven't been on here much and with the funeral coming this weekend, a Braves victory would certainly lift my mood.
Having said that, let's get this show on the road! Just a couple more hours to game 1...
