The "cursed" team is ahead by 3 runs in the 8th inning with 1 out. They are 5 outs away from the World Series. The manager's judgement is clouded with confidence in his tiring ace. He leaves him in and the unthinkable happens. His team loses.

Sound familiar?

In the movie Contact, Jodie Foster's character discovers an encoded transmission from outer space. The decrypted message contains the blueprints for building a mysterious machine.

I think we may want to investigate the possibility that "1 out in the 8th inning ahead by 3 runs" may have some sort of cosmic significance. Because the coincidence is too fantastic for me to believe.

Absolutely.

Oh, there's clearly a curse. However, I WOULD point out that the cosmic moment in NYC involved an unparalleled display of managerial stupidity and five solid Yankee hits rather than A Fan for the Ages and a muff at shortstop. It's no wonder Red Sox fans are more bitter than Cub fans...
