The family was at my son’s home for a holiday dinner. The core family arrived early to watch the Michigan-Loyola basketball playoff game. Everyone was wearing their U of M shirts. We watched the first half and Michigan was losing.
I went into the kitchen to see if I could be of help preparing the meal. It occurred to me that I have often watched a game of one of the teams from Michigan (which I consider home) and it has been pointed out that the teams loose if I watch. It can be noted because I watch few sporting events, even those from Michigan.
I said nothing, but I stayed in the kitchen (or bedroom or bathroom) for the second half.
Michigan won. My contribution.
