Ghosts in the Closet

Boston sports fans have been treated to a week of talk of curses and reminders of past ghosts thanks to the good people of Montreal and FOX Sports. If it’s not the Montreal jumbotron playing clips of “too many men on the ice”, it was the insufferable replays and coverage of past Red Sox frustration by FOX last night. But this week we have seen the Canadien Collision and the great Alex Rodriguez pull of some bonehead baserunning. Keep those ghosts in the closet.
