On Tuesday, the day Cal Ripken tied Lou Gehrig's record at 2130 games, I opened my mail to find the latest copy of Aethlon: The Journal of Sport Literature. On page 55 was a short story titled "Streaks" by David Zang. It is a very funny story of a Baltimore fan who takes it upon himself to end Cal's streak and it involves the O's mascot.
