• The Curse of “Paint It Black”

    Posted by on August 29th, 2005 · Comments (5)

    OK, I’m calling it.

    The Boston Red Sox allow the Rolling Stones to destroy their turf – enough so that the Fenway ground crew had to get 40,000 square feet of sod from a farm in southeastern New Jersey to replace the grass on their field.

    New Jersey?

    The birthplace of Derek Jeter!

    If that’s not begging for a new curse, nothin’ is. Look for the Red Sox to now lose 17 of their remaining 33 home games this season – starting tonight.

    UPDATE, Aug. 30th: That should have been “12 of their remaining 22 home games this season – starting tonight.”

    I think I need an eye-exam!

      I’d agree, if the original turf didn’t come from the same farm.

      ha! Geez, Brad, get a funny bone.

      Here’s one Jersey girl wishing it would be true. 😉

      Well, then, the curse will be for double dipping! {wink}
