Curses foiled again

Belated congratulations to the Chicago White Sox for winning the 2005 World Series. I picked against them, but rooted for them. Yesterday morning, Phil Bayly, the morning anchor on the local NBC affiliate in Albany, was playing the White Sox fight song. I didn’t know they even HAD one. I’m happy for you, JB.

Who woulda thunk that the year after the BoSox defeated the Curse of the Bambino (1918-2004) that the ChiSox would end the Curse of the Black Sox that started the year before (1917-2005)? Arithmetically speaking, bet the house on the Chicago Cubs, who last won a World Series nine years earlier than the White Sox, in 1908, to oust whatever Curse is holding them, in a 4-game sweep…in 2014.
