Not Just Another Yankee Fan

Nice piece by Larry Miller on the playoffs, and baseball as Americana. Here's a taste:

Then last week I began to love the terrific young Marlins and their great manager. But I kept thinking, it's the Cubs and Sox, stupid. Every time they missed a chance, or began to slip and lose focus, my heart went out to them. Every time something went against them, or their opponents began to rally, my wife and I would look at each other and shake our heads muttering, "We don't believe in curses, do we?"
