Red Sox fans are superstitious people. Only superstitious people could have such a thing as the Curse of the Bambino haunting us since 1918 the last time the Sox won the World Series. With that being said, I want to thank Meg Mallon personally for screwing up the Red Sox chances of winning a World Series this year. How could she do this you ask? Let me tell you what she did.
After winning the US Women's Open on Sunday Meg said "I figure if I can win the US Open, then the Red Sox can win the World Series." My jaw hit the floor when she said this. This quote has JINX written all over it. I know Meg meant no harm by this and she is a big Sox fan, but some things are better left unsaid.
To all golfers out there: talk golf & golf only, do not talk baseball, and never under any circumstances reference the Red Sox.
