And so begins the legend of the Rally Masks!
It wasn't a come from behind victory a la the fabled Rally Monkey, but one cannot deny the power of the Rally Masks, which improved to 2-0 after tonight's Halo victory. The luchadore masks wasted little time in demonstrating their power by way of a three-run first inning for the Angels, giving them a lead from which they would never look back.
Call me superstitious if you want, but I truly believe these masks have some magic in them and, so as not to deplete it all, we must come up with some ground rules for mask usage, just like with the Rally Monkey:
- The masks only work if Rojas and Gubi wear them. No exceptions.
- The masks may only be worn in a game that followed a loss. Perhaps we should dub them the Slump Buster Masks?
- Ranchero music must accompany the call to put on the masks until a proper theme song can be chosen. I nominate Enrique Iglesias' "Hero" (since the masks will save the day... and kiss away our pain). Ricky Martin's "La Vida Loca" is strictly forbidden.
My only concern is that the masks' powers might only work against teams with "Sox" in their name. I guess we'll have to try them out again later.
