Tomorrow, The Ford faces a tough decision: Which hat should he wear?

Should he wear his Tigers cap, with the entire season on the line, hoping that a week without it -- its 1-1 record over the weekend earned it a much-needed Verlander-like rest -- will have restored its karmic mightiness?

Or should he wear his Dallas Stars cap, as The Official NHL Team hosts the hometown Red Wings?

Normally, this wouldn't be a debate; it'd be the Olde English D all the way.

But The Ford's noticed that, when he's rooting for two teams in two sports, the one not supported by his clothing tends to win. The one endorsed by his headgear or sweatshirt tends to lose. Thus are the karmic scales balanced, The Ford believes.

Of course, this has really only been tested this year on Saturdays with The Official Alma Mater going head-to-head with The Official Sports Mistress. And in that case, um, one team is, well, good, the other is, well, The Official Alma Mater. Their wins are few and far between anyway. (Editor's note: Not as few as in past years though. Cougs are totally Taguchi. That is to say, SO going to a bowl.)

Obviously, this is quite the dilemma -- one The Ford suspects will not be solved until he wakes up tomorrow and forgets to put on either hat.

consider how much rain is falling right now, do what you need to do for the Stars to win, because the Tigers aren't playing.
