No jinx here

I knew it was going to happen.

My latest Union Observer column was about a nice young man named Dan Brooks, a wide receiver for the Wingate University football team.

It’s an example of a gamble lost. The column, written on Wednesday night last week for publication on Sunday, described how Brooks, an all-conference receiver who entered the season with 16 career touchdown receptions for the Bulldogs, hadn’t caught a single touchdown pass in the first four Wingate games.

So it came as no shock to me on Saturday afternoon when Brooks broke into the open and caught an 84-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Anthony Metzelaars on Wingate’ s second offensive play of the game. He caught a 35-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter. He had three receptions in the game for a single game career-high 138 yards.

I’m happy to be the SI Cover Jinx in reverse.
