So much for my perfect square theory.
Back on May 30, I made the bold prediction that the Mets no hitters curse would be broken in the team’s 7,396th game. Why? Because the number 7,396 is a perfect square of 86 (in other words 86 x 86 = 7,396), and clearly ’86 was the luckiest year in team history.
But in the first inning of game 7,396, Jose Lopez singled to center off Oliver Perez to extend the streak of the New York Mets never accomplishing a no hitter at least one more game.
And then, the Mets lose 11-0.
I’ll refrain from any further predictions.
