Congratulations to the Boston Red Sox for finally putting the Bambino curse to rest!
Yes, I know, I'm not a big sports fan, but this is an old cause... and an old curse. Babe Ruth cursed the Red Sox when he was traded to New York in 1918, and ever since then they have never won a World Series. As a New Englander, I've always heard about the curse and how the Red Sox will NEVER win a World Series because of it.
Well the curse was broken, and I think it was done right.
First, the BoSox beat the dreaded Yankees with a miracle from-behind win in the playoffs. Oh, just the reaction from the NY fans alone was incredible. And then a solid sweep in the World Series against the Cardinals to bury the curse once and for all.
And I'm glad it turned out this way. Nothing against the Cardinals... they didn't make it easy for the BoSox to win those four games... but the fates in the Universe decided that it was time for the curse to be put to an end.
So as an old-time New Englander, congrats to the Boston Red Sox... 2004 World Champions! You guys earned it.
