It’s a sad day across Streak-land, as our fearless leader, “bretzky26”, saw his/her run come to an end at 37 games after Juan Pierre’s 0-for-4 effort vs. the Tigers yesterday.
It was a formidable run for “bretzky26”, who started to make us all believe that the elusive dream could indeed become a reality.
We enjoyed the ride, “bretzky26”. There’s always next year.
