Let this serve as a lesson. Life isn't fair. We're all subject to the manias of quantum chance. Everything that can possibly happen will, or won't. And one day, you'll be called out through no fault of your own.

The Rangers won by four. Remember, boys and girls: stay in school, don't do drugs, and hope your umpires have eyes.
