a typical example of non-rigorous thinking is a generalization made from a single event.
with augie ojeda on first, paul bako hit a slow roller that bounced off of second base. ojeda made third.
then chip caray said: "this could be the cubs year, folks. everything seems to be breaking their way in these important mid-august games."
first a funny bounce became "everything breaking their way." then one game became many. then, the cubs became important.
all in chip caray's mind.
