And the streak ends






One of these things is not like the others.

6 is the current streak of consecutive national football championships for the SEC. 56 is the record for the longest MLB hitting streak, held by  Joe DiMaggio. 297 is the longest streak of consecutive NFL games started, held by Brett Favre. 8,243? Similar - Cal Ripken, Jr.'s record streak of consecutive MLB games played in.

How about the last number?

19,182 was the number of days I went without breaking a bone. This streak ended last Friday night. It was a great run.

Fortunately it was a fairly small break, just above the ankle. I just need to keep the ankle stable with a boot until it resetting required, thank God.

But it is a broken bone. And the streak is over.

So, one of these things is not like the others. Which one? The first, because the SEC is at six and counting.

And the "road to 15" begins for the Tide in 215 days. Seven, anyone?
