In this god-forsaken time we call the "off-season", we can talk about signings, piss and moan about people we're not signing, and fight with fellow bloggers over atheism and the needless celebrations it excludes.
OR we can do something REALLY productive!!
As some of you know, I am a fan of the show "The Ghost Whisperer", or as I like to refer to it - "My Boobs See Dead People". (By the by, the episode tonight is about a posessed baseball pitcher)
In between my readings of David Herbert Donald and Fabio illustrations, I was perusing a blog by famed medium and co-executive producer of The Ghost Whisperer, James Van Praagh, in which he spoke on the validity of curses. He writes:Many people ask me what a curse is and if it is indeed a reality. My answer is a resounding "Yes!" A curse is a thought, a creation of energy with an intention behind it. The intention is of a lower level, usually of revenge or of blockage: keeping something from someone or creating something that will happen to someone. A curse can become magnified as more people give it energy. For instance, we often hear in folklore about the existence of various curses: the more you believe it, the more you give it life.
So we've been stepping in goat poop on Sheffield Ave all these years for nothing?!?!? What the crap? (pun intended)
For the half a century following Sianis' tirade, we've tried bringing goats in, bringing them to Houston and getting refused in hopes of transferring the curse - all the while, we could have just stopped believing in it? I don't buy it.
So just to get an idea, how many of you strongly believe in the curse? (Screw what Van Braaaaaagh says, I wanna know)
What was the most clear sign of The Goat? Bartman? Santo and the black cat?
And stopping short of any kind of black magic or voodoo (I don't need that kind of guilt on my conscience, and I really don't like eating chicken heads) what are some ideas of breaking the curse this off-season?
1st prize goes to the most creative response.
Do you believe in the curse of the billy goat?
