  • The Curse: Alive and Well

    Have you begun to suspect what you are up against? Have you given up yet? Will you prolong your agony by continuing to imagine that there is hope?

    Yes, I admit it...you are right. h

    The Dodgers will never win a championship in Los Angeles... after moving from Brooklyn, some in NY said the Dodgers will be cursed from the year 1958 onward and never even win a pennant, and I didn't want to believe it...but now...after 47 long, agonizing years without a World Championship...yes, I beleive it.... You Brooklyners were right after all...the Dodgers will never win in LalA land h

    Oh, wait... Never mind.

      Nobody ever said that the LA team would be cursed from 1958 on. When I formulated my Curse, I had to do extensive research to make sure that I was not duplicating someone else's curse. Curses get ornery when they discover they are redundant. Only Brooklynites (there is no such thing as a Brooklyner) would have had a reason to curse the LA team, but all Brooklynites were too stunned to act.

      My Curse was made retroactive to 1989. That was as far back as I could go without disrupting the space-time continuum. It will suffice. You are doomed for at least the next century. Get used to it. I suggest you pass the time during the baseball season by devoting yourself to word puzzles, preferably double acrostics. Occasionally, you will come across one whose answer will tell you how to lift the Curse. But the instructions will be cryptic, and the solution will not be easy. On second thought, you would be better off giving yourself up to despair.

          Or next. Or the one after that. My calculations indicate that your window of opportunity may open on August 31, 2103.

            Then baseball will be all high-tech with more highly safisticated equipment.

              One could also conclude that "The Curse of Brooklyn" brought McCourt, and his band of baseball incompetents, in for the sole purpose of running this group (team?) into the ground?

              What do you think, Professor?

                The Curse was programmed to find an owner for the LA team who came as close as possible to the Montgomery-Giles consortium that has been running the Phillies into the ground for the past quarter of a century. Finding McCourt was an absolutely brilliant touch. The next owner will be even worse. (And the example of the Phillies proves that in McCourt, the LA team has not reached bottom.)

                    Wait, do witch doctors have sleeves?

                      The next owner will be in the mold of William F. Baker, owner of the Phillies from 1913-1930. Baker was the owner who singlehandedly led the Phillies into a period of darkness never before or since seen in pro or college sports. It is said that the Phillies have yet to recover from Baker's reign of terror and evidence today supports this fact, i.e. Giles and Montgomery, Ed Wade.

                      After this terrible era in Dodgers history,an era where superstars and HOF's will be traded or sold to rivals, a new owner will rise from the ashes, an owner even worse than Baker. This man will be in the mold of one Gerry Nugent, famous for naming his wife GM of the Phillies in the late 1930's and early 1940's. With no players to sell or trade, this owner, along with his GM wife, will have to sell the furniture in the Dodger's office to make ends meet.

                      A terrible time awaits Dodgers fans.The Dodgers will enter darkness only charted by the Phillies. But the curse will end in 2104.

                        Come on guys.

                        I am not the biggest LA Dodgers fan myself. I also think the Dodgers belong to Brooklyn.

                        But what sense does it make to stir the pot around here?

                        The only things you will get in this way are fights. And isn't that something we DON'T want in our little community?

                          It's okay, YR. I don't think you'll find too many Dodger fans in LA that are optimistic about the team's direction in leadership and level of play. So naturally, their disdain of the front office is shared by the Brooklynites.

                            I bet many Dodger fans were not real happy with the Fox ownership, especially after the O'Malleys.

                              Actually, "The Brooklyn Curse" was working very well, even then, by laying the ground work, in allowing the team to be sold to Murdoch/Fox, for the future sale to the band of total incompetents that was to come after them......the McCourts!
