The local Barnes & Noble cafe hasa "Question of the Day." If you get the answer right, you get a free tall coffee. Yesterday's question was "what is the story behind the 'Curse of the Bambino'?" I managed to stammer out that the Red Sox couldn't win a World Series since trading Babe Ruth to the Yankees.
Little did I know that shortly after I answered that question (about 6:30 EST), the Sox would shove the Curse farther into its grave by winning ANOTHER World Series.
