Photo: Reds fan places 'miracle pancake' on eBay, claims it's divine sign Reds will win World Series

The Reds Miracle Pancake. Reds WS Champs in '13. Put butter on it.

The Reds are heavily favored to win the National League Central Division in 2013. If they are successful, it would mark the third division crown in four seasons for Dusty Baker's team. 

But the franchise has set the bar even higher this time around. Many believe, myself included, that Cincinnati has all the pieces to contend for a World Series title. They boast one of the game's elite hitters in Joey Votto, a formidable starting rotation and defense, and the league's most dominating bullpen, especially now that Aroldis Chapman appears to be heading back to the closer role.

However, the greatest sign that 2013 may be Cincinnati's year to bring home the hardware stems from divine intervention while Reds fan Joel Knueven was whipping up breakfast last Sunday.

Our friends over at OMGReds have the scoop:
While making chocolate chip pancakes with his son the morning of Sunday, March 24, Knueven flipped one over and right in the middle of the flap jack was a wishbone “C”. 
“The Lord works in mysterious ways, I’m just glad that my pancake batter ladle was chosen as the conduit through which this covenant was made with Reds faithful” said Knueven. 
“This was NOT planned, nor did I use some template to try to create it–it looks so dead on that people have asked me that question.”
Is this a sign of good things to come for the Redlegs? I hope so. They have had some tough luck in their past two trip to the postseason in 2010 and 2012. The Reds were ousted in the NLDS both times.

So, whatever became of the heavenly pancake? Well, Knueven has decided to capitalize on his supernatural memento by placing it up for sale on eBay. The starting bid begins around $50 and all proceeds will go to benefit Reds Community Fund. 

Here is the description Knueven used to describe the pancake in the listing:
The Cincinnati Reds wishbone "C" miraculously appeared on this amazing pancake. It is believed to be a divine prophecy that the Cincinnati Reds will be World Champions in 2013. 
Here is your chance to own a supernatural memento of what is certain to be a historic Cincinnati Reds season. This carefully preserved chocolate chip pancake has been frozen and placed within an air tight container to insure that it's message of hope can be seen by the world.

Shipment costs may be higher due to the fact that climate controlled transport should be secured to maintain the integrity of this priceless artifact.
Put your bid in now before it's too late!
