Today's Beat the Streak portion of Streaking in Public is sponsored by the letter P. After my pack of Phillies petered out, I putter to the port side of Pennsylvania. I propose that a pair of Pirates pick my pathetic streak up against a putrid pitcher. My prominent pick was a popular prognostication in the present mvP, Andrew McCutchen. I progress to my proceeding pick whose performance this period has been prodigious. I pontificate plainly about Josh Harrison. The peas in a pod will pummel Brandon Workman who possesses a petrifying 5.27 ERA. Post haste, I will procure some pickled peppers and possibly paint a picture from the portfolio of Pablo Picasso poorly or play the piccolo. PARTY!!!
Boy did I need a win yesterday. My BTS Brocation edition was a bust and the boys in blue were bludgeoned. Sorry, I was just on a bit of an alliteration kick from above. Brandon McCarthy and the Yankees proved to be just the tonic I needed yesterday to turn my red blood green. If Evan Longoria didn't play, his seven innings would have looked even better. Dellin Betances and David Robertson slammed the door on the Rays and I come into today on a W1. I am hoping that I will AT LEAST be at a W4 tonight. I am filling my plate like an obese person at Ponderosa today with a minimum of three SFTC selections. My first pick is going against the general public at 1:00. I feel my Bhoys, Scottish Champions Celtic FC, can at least eke out a draw against the Austrian champions in a Europa League tussle of Champions League castoffs. My second pick is another one going against the popular opinion. I am going with 14 or more goals to be score in the first halves of the twelve 3:05 Europa League games. There are several games that I feel multiple goals will be scored in, offsetting any potential 0-0 halves. My last choice for the day comes from the abomination that is Thursday Night Football. I believe that Tampa is ripe to get whooped on and that Atlanta will easily put up ten unanswered points at one point in the second half. That or it will go the total other way and I still win, what a life! HAPPY STREAKING EVERYBODY!!
