Our curse is more powerful than YOUR curse

Photo reveals double curse in ’86

That’s right: What Hintz spotted — and what Uni Watch and countless other researchers had missed over the years — was that Bill Buckner was wearing a Chicago Cubs batting glove under his first baseman’s mitt. (And no, that’s not a Photoshop job — it’s the real deal.)

The poor Red Sox. It’s bad enough they were saddled with one curse; they didn’t know they were actually fighting two of them. No wonder Buckner missed that ball. He never had a chance.

I’ll be honest. I’m not that kind of Cubs fan who believes in curses, or at least, believes in blaming shoddy team performance on curses. But this makes me shake my head a little.

  1. I don’t believe in curses or put much in the secondary psychological effects. But, I love stories and connections – the Cubbie spin (the title) on this one takes the cake.

  2. No one will ever believe me now but I noticed that on this particular photo more than 15 years ago.
