The Daily Show- Red Sox Kid
I don't know very much about sports, but I happend to catch something about Boston a week or two ago on the Daily Show.
Did anyone see the segment about a kid who ended the curse because he got hit in the face with a ball? He seemed pretty sure that the curse was over, and Walla...the Sox win?
That is no less than creepy. Does anyone else know about this kid?
Here's the story on that kid. He lives in the house that Babe Ruth used to own in Massachusetts. Manny Ramirez of the Red Sox hit a foul ball that hit him in the mouth and knocked out a tooth. This also happened on the same night that the Yankees suffered the worst lost in franchise history 22-0 to the Cleveland Indians.
Supposedly all these were sure signs the "curse" was over. Then the Sox go and win it all. Go figure.
That is funny you mention that -- I have thought about that kid all the way through the games with the Yankees and then the WS. Weird.
