BUT ... I'm not a life-long Cubs fan because they're the winningest or anything ... they're the hometown team. They're my Cubs. The Cubs are just something special. It'd be like rooting against your kid's high school team because another school has a better record. :) I'll be a Cubs fan 'til I die, WS win or not.

Our Cubs will never win the WS because it's been so long that when they get even close, the pressure is too much to bare and they choke.

I think they should've just given the 2008 WS to us for the 100 year anniversary, for pity, and to manually break the curse. ;)

There were a lot of deaths surrounding the hope diamond. You can read about them HERE

"Technically, Patch, everything you see, you are looking at it's reflection."

I'm not sure I get what you mean. Sure, you are seeing reflected light, but that's not a reflection of the item itself. An item's reflection is when the light bounces off the item and hits a reflective surface before finally hitting your eye.

Anyway, with the Hope Diamond, they store it way down in a lower room, then use a series of mirrors to reflect the image up to the viewing window where you can see it. Given it's value, you can't blame them.

The Madden curse is attributed to the statistical phenomena "regression toward the mean". If any athlete has a good year it is very hard for them to sustain that to the next. If you consider who makes it on the cover (players who had a good year) you understand why they usually have a less than good the next.

I've seen the Hope Diamond. Very cool but you are only looking at it's reflection.

It's funny how the human brain will find patterns and try to rationalize them, in this case, as superstition. What would be odd is if we didn't have coincidence. That would be a statistical anomaly worthy of investigating.
