My World Series Premonition: Joe Nathan vs Kosuke Fukudome

Ravuth ThorngCorrespondent ISeptember 28, 2008

With the American League Central race being tighter than Nastia Liukin's leotards, and having to go past the last day of the regular season, I was hesitant to share this, being afraid of jinxing my beloved Twins. But, I have to get this off of my chest, so I thought I might as well share my extremely vivid dream. And no, it is not confessing my undying love for Nastia, but close.

Anyway, you know how most people dream about things that are symbolic or metaphorical, with deeper subliminal meanings, rather than superficial messages? Well, for some reason, my dreams are very straight forward, and get right to the point, in color to boot.

So, I had this dream before the All-Star break and instead of dreaming about women like normal college guys, except for my former pilot roommate who dreamt about planes, I dreamt about baseball. The main thing that I remember from this particular dream was Joe Nathan of the Minnesota Twins pitching to the Cubs' Kosuke Fukudome. Nathan in Twins pinstripes, and Fukudome in their alternate home blue jerseys.

Now, since the Twins did not play the Cubs in interleague this season, the match-up did not come to fruition, the only other times that these two could possibly face each other is during the All-Star game, or the World Series.

Both were All-Stars this season, but they did not face each other. Even so, since it was in New York, technically, the AL players were considered home.

Me being the delusional pimp that I am, a lot of my dreams have come true, except for the whole Liukin thing, but I'm working on that. But, anyway, the only other possible scenario is for these two teams to square off is in the World Series.

Then to break down the scenario even further, the jerseys obviously refer to the game being at Wrigley Field. In that case, The only reason that Joe Nathan would pitch would be in a save situation, implying that the Twins have the lead.

Therefore, with all the factors in check, and the Twins having had the best interleague record for two seasons in a row, my premonition shows the Twins winning it all.

Now I know this may seem far-fetched, but most did not expect the Twins to be where they are right now anyway, so anything can happen. I am not saying that this will happen, but my dream was frighteningly vivid. Plus, there's no harm in trying.

Hopefully, me telling the whole world, well at least the Twins community about my dream does not jinx the Twins chances for the playoffs, but I just thought it was a very strange subject to dream about.
