Curse of Col. Sanders

Postby Amazinz » Thu Mar 12, 2009 6:38 pm

Just more evidence life is stranger than fiction...

Why does Japan have a statue of Col. Sanders? Got me. But they dumped it into a river 24 years ago when the Tigers won their first championship in two decades. Now two decades plus later they blame the new drought on the Curse of Col. Sanders. They managed to retrieve the statue from the water and are apparently going to repair it and then put it back up. :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

The Cubs should try to find that Hello Kitty statue that they threw into the lake.

I saw the article myself. Quite funny that they had the statue as well.

It`s hilarious that cities will go at these lengths to stop a "championship curse." But hey, it worked for us in Philly when we placed a Billy Penn mini-statue on top of our tallest building....If only there was some kinda quick fix for those sorry Mets Amazinz :-b

But the colonel may not be ready just yet to lift his curse. After all, he's still missing two feet, a left hand and his trademark glasses, the newspaper says.

Man, and I thought the Cubs "curse of the goat" was weird.
