The Worse Curse

Being a Chicago Cubs fan, I have a problem with Red Sox fans who claim that the "Curse of the Bambino" is a more powerful curse than the Cubs Billy Goat Curse.

My biggest argument for the Billy goat curse is this: The Cubs have consistently sucked since the beginning of the curse. They haven't been to the World Series since 1945 (when the curse was established by Bill "Billy Goat" Sianis [original owner of the yummy Billy Goat Taverns in Chicago]), and they haven't won a World Series since 1908 (that's right, four more years and it will be a century of baseball futility in Chicago). The Red Sox, while not winning the World Series since Babe Ruth left the Red Sox, have still been there 3 times (4 counting this year).

But, after tonight's Red Sox victory to go up 3-0 over the Cardinals... I can say without equivocation that if the Sox blow this Series, I will have no doubt that the Curse of the Bambino is by far the more powerful curse. Imagine it. The Red Sox doing something that has never been done in the history of baseball (coming back from being down 3-0 against the Yankees), only to lose in the same spectacular fashion as the Yankees... in the same year! That would be one *spectacular* curse!

Talk about a f**k you from the Bambino to Boston!
