God himself comes down to pinch-hit, breaks up Schilling’s ‘no-no

God (above center) points his way to Oakland.

(HERNIA HEADQUARTERS) — The SportsCenter-media blitz-assman parade wasn’t to be this afternoon as a shocking base hit by God with two outs in the 9th spoiled a no hit bid for Curt Schilling.

According to reports, God, who was in the Sudan at a children’s hospital, immediately pulled a batting helmet from under his robe and bolted for McAfee Coliseum as soon as he got the news.

"I couldn’t let it happen," said God in a statement issued to the press by Blaine Bishop. "I mean, c’mon…"

    A coworker brought to my attention the time when Schilling had a no-hit bid broken up on a bunt single by Ben Davis. He and manager Bob Brenly were livid.

    I know this is off topic, but who the heck cares how you break up a no-hitter? There aren’t any unwritten rules as to how you start a rally, so why would it be any different when the pitcher has a no-hitter going?

    Baseball can be such a funny game sometimes.

    Thank you! Sometimes these freakin traditions and all that crap really get to me. Who does care how you break up a no-no? I heard that Mac, Jirco and Harry (yes, real names), the local ESPN guys in chicago, were talking about the game the entire time to try to break it up. Telling listeners to put their hands on their radios to stop this no-hitter. I mean, who is narcissistic enough to think that whatever they do at home will break up a no-hitter for someone 500 miles away?! In the words of the immortal BBW, get f*cked.
