Foiled again

The TTABlog mourns the sporting demise of the Chicago Cubs’ season, alluding to the “curse of the Billy Goat”:

Now, I’m not sure I follow exactly — John Welch (left) being a proper Bostonian and all — but I have Marty Schwimmer (center) figured for a Mets fan (if anything)… and that’s harsh enough. And me, well, I am a Yankees fan, son of a Yankees fan. Even the billy goat beard (long gone) didn’t prevent the bad baseball demons of subterranean Chicago from attaching themselves to me for deposit in the Big Apple.

So far so good for Welch, then; not so good for us New Yorkers. Whatever bad mazal we brought from Chicago, well, somehow, so far, it hasn’t followed John.

    Ron: I’m actually on the right in the photo. And I’m actually a Chicago native and a White Sox fan, though I reside in Boston. Otherwise, I agree with whatever you said.

    Wait, the one with the mustache is you and the one with the beard is me, right?
