Somebody on here had a pet peeve about misuse of the word “streak”. Where does this one qualify?

At least it’s successive. Easterbrook used to say things like Team XYZ is on an 8-1 streak or Player XYZ has a streak of rushing for 100 yards in 5 of his last 6 games.

Easterbrook – There’s a name I’m glad I haven’t heard in a while. Unfortunately, it wasn’t used in this sentence “Easterbrook found dead at midget sex party.”
