I finally figured it out.
No, really. I had been wondering if, perhaps, the curse is broken, if the Sox can take the Series this year. After all, I had surmised a while ago that if we can't win, in a strictly technical sense, with this team, we probably can't ever win. What's to stop us?
But Saturday I figured it out. This stupid playground little-kid bullshit that destroys the focus on the game, that's how the Sox could let us down this year. Mark my words.
