For writers covering teams out of playoff contention, it can be difficult to find interesting stories late in the season. But Anthony DiComo, the Mets' beat writer for, found a cool nugget, wrote a quick story on it and shared the link in the fifth inning of Thursday's game.

And then, miraculously, this happened:

Note the time stamps. Mets pitcher Dillon Gee balked a mere two minutes after DiComo's initial tweet. 

DiComo figured it was worth a shot to try jinxing some other things.

Nice try, Anthony.
