Curse of the Bambino

  1. Dec 8, 2004 #1
    If you look hard enough you can find numbers to fit whatever you need

    Babe Ruth's year of birth: 1948
    Age when Ruth died: 53
    Jersey number: 3

    1948 + 53 + 3 = 2004 = year Boston Red Sox won world series ending the "Curse of the Bambino" :biggrin:

    I give up. Why? Were you going to baseball games during the years he was playing? Babe Ruth stopped playing baseball in 1935. Were you going to baseball games before 1935?

    Yes, it was.
