So definitely before that World Series win and the superstition is creeping in here. Now John’s dilemma is that his wife wants him to paint over it while they’re renovating the house … Would you be the superstitious type to leave it if it wasn’t you up there?

Oh, absolutely. No I’m keeping it. If I was a Dodger fan I would be keeping it in there, absolutely right. Something that’s true about athletes, and not just solely limited to baseball players, but athletes are quite superstitious. Sometimes it’s just a little bit below level and sometimes it’s just a subtext of something else of what they’re doing.
Sometimes it’s pretty subliminal, and sometimes it’s not — it’s pretty audacious. But I don’t think just leaving a mural on the wall is going to be much of a problem at all here.
Youth Darrius Heyward-Bey Jersey With the Dodgers blowing everybody away so far this year — they’re setting 50-game stretch records and their pace is incredible — it looks like they’ll at least have a shot at it all. You were a part of the team that won it last for LA, do you have any thoughts on this year’s team?
One night later, I sat in the same seat for the actual MLB All-Star Game, and the mood felt completely different. There were some empty seats where there hadn’t been on Monday, and fans were more subdued. Sure, they still danced in the stands and did the wave and tried to get on the Jumbotron, as one does. It was lovely, but it wasn’t … electric.
You know what it felt like? Like we’d gotten to the end of a really fabulous meal when the waiter comes over and says, Does anyone want to see a dessert menu? And you all look at each other, and one person starts to say, Nah, the check would be fine, before someone else says, Well, we can just look, and then next thing you know you’re splitting a molten chocolate cake and a lemon mousse even though you’re pretty full and could’ve just gone home.
