On August 21st, Astros pitcher Mike Fiers . . . was on fire (am I right?). He . . . “torched” the Los Angeles Dodgers last Friday, striking out 10 and walking 3 on his way to a 134 pitch no hitter.
But this video isn’t about Fiers’ “fiery” performance. It’s about all the people who watched the game and their insane superstitions.
Sorry to drown you in fire references. But over the course of the game, there was an extremely vocal online majority willing to BURN OTHERS AT THE STAKE for pointing out that Fiers was throwing a no hitter!
Why? Because apparently pointing out the obvious IS WITCHCRAFT!
Yet despite the witchcraft, the no hitter still happened. Hmm. Let’s put an end to the notion of jinxes. Now.
