Some insight as to why the Red Sox have not won a World Series Championship since 2004 from The Onion:

"I just pray that my son can see the Sox win at least one World Series in his lifetime," said Boston resident Sal Fischer of his son Cody, 2.

Classic. And I'm sure that's already been said in real life by the Chowds.

oh it has

"I hope we win the World Series again. I mean, it's been an eternity since we won. I've waited three long years for this. I just hope they lose a couple this weekend in Colorado so we can win it at home. That would be so much more fun."

Peter Gammons, the greatest baseball writer of them all before he became Hardball Guru of ESPN, yesterday said, "Right after the game Thursday, I ran into a guy who said, 'I hope they lose a couple in Denver so they can come home and win it.' Wow. Now it's not just about getting a Mercedes. They want a blue Mercedes."

The "real" fans know better, but I'm betting some of you are hoping they lose a couple so they can finally win it at home.

Careful what you wish for.

If White Sox fans had the mentality of other baseball fans in the city, there might be talk of a Frank Thomas curse, although I think Carl Everett might be a more popular curse source.

There was the Jose Paniagua curse. Since that game happened, we were never in first place by more than 2.5 games until 2005.
