First Win

Yay! We Tivo’d the game and so got to see some of the excitement of the Mariners’ first win of the season. I was starting to worry that the name “Basementball” was having some kind of negative effect on the team. Actually, I blame the revival of the upside down trident vintage M’s logos of the 1970’s and 1980’s. According to the Seattle Post-Inelligencer, a former team owner changed that logo (scroll down to list #15 “M’s Oddities”, item #2) because he thought it was bad luck. The players aren’t wearing it, but plenty of fans are, for some reason.
