Why you didn't do well at this year's Nationals

I got this item today from some wag... No not knocking their faith but it's very odd that you can influence items in this manner. I suspect that some are probably seriously considering doing the same next year.

In my younger days, I was a fencer and the claim was made that the reason Ontario didn't do well in a particular year was theat they couldn't find a virgin...

I make it a habit to sacrifice as many of these as I can before a contest ... ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Canadian sacrificial goat.
