That's a significant run of luck considering the Red Sox hadn't won a World Series in the 86 years before they "broke the curse" in 2004.
What brought about a culture of winning to Boston's teams -- boosting the sense of pride for New England and its die-hard fans?
Ordinarily modesty would oblige me to not toot my own horn. But this is my blog, and no one else has editorial rights to the page so it is left to me to answer.
Until the prior decade, I lived in New York City. Then my wife and I moved to the Boston area, and well, I think the record shows for itself. New York teams -- even the Yankees -- have been in something of a slump (I'm sure there's a better word to describe the Mets and the Knicks) while Boston's teams have done exceptionally well, almost all of them consistently making it to the playoffs.
No doubt there are other factors, but my move to Boston is certainly one of them.
Same for my lucky Red Sox shirt, which I discovered accidentally. You can check out my article on GlossyNews.com.
