The Lyrics

How do you break a curse for this year? Start by blowing up a foul ball outside of a resteraunt to cable TV.
One game 5 foul ball sent the Cubs' to a farewell
Steve Bartman caught the ball, and sent the team to hell
Now that foul ball's not gotta toss it in the sea
But I saw something I wanna see, right on Cable TV

And I think it's gonna be alright
Yeah, the worst is over now
Pyrotechnics are blowin' up that Steve Bartman Ball

I saw it at a Chi-town resteraunt outside
It's something that'll make the fans cheer with pride
One big burst, will end their, 90+ years to live
When that's done and the season begins, a title ring they'll give

(repeat chorus)

The story's on the internet as if you might recall
'Cause that will has to be a sign of the Cubs winning it all
In 7 months, we'll finally see a streak to put on end
I got some season ticket passes that i'm going to spend

(repeat chorus 2x)

(sfx: explosion)

We are now two of three people that have done this song. You are writing about what I thought was the stupidest sports story I ever heard.

Arcade, Yeah, you know - Cubbies & fans need to stop whining. After the foul ball you still have an opportunity to get the batter out, and the next batter, etc., so only so much can be laid on one play. And from what little I recall the ball was over the stands, so the fan has a right to try and catch it (although if it were I, I would refrain) - one of my first memories of going to a ball game was at Yankee Stadium when I was 5, there was a foul ball hit to our area (but about 20 yards away) and some jerk trampled my little ass trying to go after it. He didn't get it, I got a charlie horse and a couple other bruises and I think maybe an ice cream cone after the game for my "pain & suffering".

So was that interfering Yankees fan that caught Derek Jeter's "home run" ball ot the '96 playoffs that the Orioles still had a chance to get a curse on the O's or a Yankee conspiracy? I guess we'll never know. :(

OK, one more time, people: Tony Tarasco was NOT going to catch the Jeffrey Maier ball! Check the tape: His glove was not lined up right! The ball was up and to the left. Look at the tape again: Up and to the left, up and to the left, up and to the left... Besides, the Orioles played three home games in that ALCS and lost them all. If you can't defend your home field in the Playoffs, you don't deserve to win the Pennant. Sorry, Jeff Reuben, but it had to be said. There are many myths involving the Yankees, but that one had to be debunked.
