It Worked for Curt Schilling

Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer cut his finger on the propeller of a drone he was working on and needed 10 stitches in his pinky finger.
The stitches didn't hold and he was bleeding like a stuck pig, blood literally dripping off his hand during Game 3 of the ALDS. He didn't even survive an inning before the gaping wound forced him out of the game.

The Indians held on in that game and the Series and will now seek to win their first World Series in 68 years, and to deny the Cubs their first in 108.

By the way, the Red Sox streak was exactly 68 years in 1986. And it took them another 18 to finally get there, ending their streak at 86.

Bauer says his finger is patched up and ready to go for the World Series. So we won't see anymore items joining Curt Schilling's sock and OJ Simpson's glove and the most famous blood-soaked items in sports.

Song of the Week

"Unwritten" - Natasha Bedingfield

2006 wasn't a good year for music, if you're an old grump. The pop music was just some of the worst there could be. "Buttons" by the Pussycat Dolls being one example. But this song is good, and has a nice message. There is only one you in the world, so be yourself and make the most of your brief chance to exist on this giant rock hurtling through space. At least that's my interpretation.
