Well, I guess since they won the WS last year, you can't say they are cursed (curse of Curt Flood?). With former Sox farm hand dying in a car crash on top of the Kile tragedy a few years back, it reminds us it is just a game. And the strange thing about this one is that just like with Kile they were playing Chicago.
On a lighter note, the Pats trade for Randy Moss? It could be great for Brady. But it also could be a disaster. Hopefully he is done with his immature phase like Dillon and now wants to actually win.
