Cause and Effect, and Football

Here’s another example of how you mean something, but a day later, you realize it means something else.

And it comes from me.

My high school reunion was last weekend (it’s been 30 years since I graduated). Beside the main dinner on Saturday, there was a bar crawl, golf tournament and football game in the days leading to it. Being the sports guy I am (and because my volleyball game I was supposed to officiate got canceled), I attended the football game.

The day before, I wrote on Facebook: “Looking forward to seeing many of you at tomorrow’s football game. Go Bulldogs! They’re currently 0-2 unfortunately, but that changes tomorrow!”

Originally, I optimistically meant that the team will get its first victory, but later I realized that, duh, of course that changes tomorrow. It’ll either win or lose (no tie because of overtime).

The team lost 35-0, falling to 0-3.

It’s here! My début book, “If You Experience Death, Please Call: And Other Fatal Mistakes We Make With Language” is available on Amazon for only $14.95.  Order here.
