Nah, this aint the end of the Opie curse. The Jets still suck, the Mets are gonna suck next year, the Knicks havealways sucked since Patrick Ewing left, and I don't really watch hockey, so I can't say the Islanders suck, but I'll go check the standings right now...................
(insert Jeopardy music here)
.................................and I'm back. At first I didn't understand the standings cause it has games played there, but then I realized that was games played. It looked like the Devils and Rangers were 10-3 and the Islanders were 9-5, and the Islanders were over the Devils and the Rangers, so I was all confused. Actually, the Islanders are 5-4, and they have a winning record.
Boston just got lucky. They played against a team that had too much rest. Fuck the Red Sox, and fuck Boston.
Ask the Islanders about that curse...Brindy smacked a hat trick on their ass Saturday night...while the Canes will be eating barbecue from the Cup for the second time in three years this June, the Gorton's Fishermen will just be trying to get another teetime.
Here's my theory:
The Curse of the Bambino was 86 years old, the Sox broke that curse in 04, therefore they are immune from any curse younger than 86 years old. Seeing as Opie just got out of college, his curse was null and void.
I think the curse is still in effect. Opie rooting for the Sox was a goof. he also rooterd for 3-4 other teams and only one can win so I don't think the curse should be applied to this. if he had called the sox before the season or maybe even the playoffs I would consider the possibility of the curse being lifted. next season why doesn't he just pick the whole National League to win the World Series so he has a better chance of winning. Curse ON!
And the Islanders haven't won a playoff series since 93. They've also suffered two huge blowouts in the past 4 games (8-2 and 8-3). The curse does seem to center on the Isles since Op has been a season ticket holder. It doesn't necessarily explain why the Rangers have sucked so bad...he's probably been rooting for them too.
