saying IT without saying IT...

We have a family tradition...

 

 

It's a family superstition...

And this tradition...

And this superstition...

Happen a few times a year...

During baseball season...

The most recent rendition of IT was the other day...

Something special was happening...

And I needed to call my son...

Not there...

Had to leave a voice mail...

And tell him about IT...

But I couldn't exactly say what IT was...

But he knew what I meant...

Then my brother Chris texts me...

And tells me about IT...

Without saying IT...

Now I call my brother Scott...

But first of all...

I wouldn't say we are a real superstitious family...

But I would say we are superstitious about IT...

Because when you get a call...

Or you get a text...

And the person calling...

Or the person texting...

Is saying IT without saying IT...

You know exactly what he means...

So I call Scott...

Scott answers...

On this particular day Scott is working on the Amtrak...

But he fields my call...

And he's glad he did....

"Hi, Scoot..."

(That's his nickname...)

"Guess what I'm doing..."

"I'm watching the Angels game..."

"Oh, really," he replies...

"And IT is a really, really good game..."

(He is starting to get my drift...)

"What inning???" asks Scott...

"IT is in the eighth inning," I say...

"Who's pitching?" he asks...

"Santana," says dvt...

"I think you really, really need to check IT out.."

"Will, do," he responds and the call is complete...

The communication is complete...

I said IT without saying IT...

I just had to say IT the way I said IT...

Or else IT wouldn't have happened...

IT doesn't always happen when we make the call...

Or the text...

Because maybe someone else in the world blew IT...

By saying IT...

Dummy...

But not on this day...

We dared not mention IT...

Because IT will definitely NOT happen if we say what IT is...

IT is our superstition...

IT is our tradition...

IT is our condition...

Did IT happen???

You bet IT did...

For the ninth time in Angels' history...

Ervin did IT...

All because we said IT without saying IT...

So the next time IT is underway...

You can call me...

Or you can text me...

Or you can facebook me...

But don't you dare say IT...

No matter who the pitcher is...

Or IT will go away...

Much to our chagrin...

Because IT is our tradition...

And our superstition...

And I thank you for your cooperation...

IT means a lot to me and my family...
