Praeteritio: Cubs No-Hitter?

2015-07-18 21.45.52

The relevant context here is that it is baseball superstition not to talk about an impending no hitter, so Sports Illustrated then comes up with kind of a cool visual praeteritio to report the impending no hitter without talking about it, pretty much the definition of a praeteritio. (And the 0s in the bottom row indicate the lack of hits; the full graphic, that includes all of the 0s, didn’t, however, include the tweet-line, which is the praeteritio.)
