Baseball is pretty boring until October, so if it’s boring to you now, the Chicago Cubs are one game away from playing the Cleveland Indians for the World Series title if they can beat Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday. As you can see, I didn’t mention the San Francisco Giants. That’s because of Taylor Swift. Sports are weird.
Taylor Swift released albums in 2010, ’12 and ’14. The Giants won the World Series in 2010, ’12, ’14. But 2016? Neither happened. A conspiracy theory of sorts circulated Twitter this week that the Giants’ playoff magic had more to do with Swift’s musical endeavors than whether it is an even year.
The REAL Reason The Giants Lost? TAYLOR SWIFT.

I really can’t get behind a conspiracy theory that is predicated on Taylor Swift not releasing a new album as a bad thing, so whatever. At least Giants players can afford a studio apartment in San Francisco. Shut the hell up.
