In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Dear Blowhards, especially Francis,

You too can watch the breaking of the Bambino's Curse, up close and personal, in Fenway itself, right by the dugout, the Sox dugout even, in the seventh game, if it gets that far. You can't get closer to history than this.

Just click here, and you'll find two tickets for sale. A little over fifty thou will get you there with a friend.

If you consider the accruals building up from 1918-2004, not such a bad deal, actually.

I think people who talk publicly about breaking the bambino's curse are tempting fate. I can only hope so, as a Saint Louis fan...

If it was a sky box....maybe.

The shocking thing is that if it were the Cubs I might actually consider it. The Red Sox, much as I like them, I am content to watch on TV.

Thanks for the info, Fenster.

The girlfriend and I considered driving to St. Louis and back for Game 3, after coming by two tickets. Just too damn long...

Another great Ebay opportunity missed.

What would happen to the Bambino Curse if St.Louis came back to win 4 games straight?

Just mentioning the unmentionable.

Fifty for the pair?
Now if they were shoes...

How much have they dropped with it 3-0 and two to go?
