Stephen Whyno wrote a little jinxy article about how the Flyers have not been cut off at the knees by injuries this season. (Knock on Wood…) They haven’t been mercilessly culled by the fates the way the Pens have been, or the Red Wings, or the Sharks goalie string. Whyno said he couldn’t find a suitable pic of a black cat in a Flyers jersey, though he thought about using one for his article.
I’ve tried to buy dog jerseys and never could find a good one. I can’t imagine what you would have to do to get a cat into a jersey.
So I decided to see what my cat thought about orange and black, and jerseys in general:
I am fairly certain that black cats are actually good luck. The Ancient Egyptians thought all cats were good luck, or maybe they chased away evil spirits. Maybe they just guarded the gates of the underworld. Oh well, it all sounds like good stuff to do.
So here’s to the health of the Flyers. They already gave at the office anyway.
