  • It also lists winning the world series (not since 1918) as the evidence of the curse, mentioning that they've gotten to the series final 4 times and lost each in the 7'th game. (So, this is not the first time that they gotten past the [damn] Yankees although perhaps the other 4 times they didn't have to defeat the Yankees explicitly themselves to win the pennant.)

    I too had always heard of the curse as their not being able to win the World Series, but then I too am not a Boston fan or even not especially much of a baseball fan except through my father-in-law from whom I heard of the curse last year, when both Boston and Chicago were in danger of lifting their respective curses - but both failed to do so. (If he were still alive, I'd have asked him about this now.)

    • I must say, though, that coming back to win after losing the first 3 games is extremely impressive. Most teams would have blinked.
      • No question that the Sox earned it. They were great games to watch. I was especially pulling for Schilling and boy did he deliver!

        The other thing I was amazed at was how both catchers were still able to play after so many consecutive games. Amazing!
