The Curse, in Survivor?

Postby slomo007 » Mon May 17, 2004 12:05 am

I don't know how many of you were fans, but read this, even if you weren't:

Boston Rob

The best player on Survivor All-Stars fell one vote short of winning $1 million, finishing second to his new fiancée Am-buh on Sunday night. Despite the fact that he donned a Red Sox cap the entire season, I admit I was pulling for Boston Rob simply because he deserved to win more than any other player in the game (outside of Rupert, of course).

So I started thinking, maybe the whole Curse thing also applies to Survivor. Maybe if Rob had worn a Yankees hat the entire season things would have been different. Think about if for a second (if you don't watch Survivor, you should have skipped to the next section by now)...

Rob lost 4 votes to 3. The Red Sox have lost their last five World Series 4 games to 3, and last year's ALCS 4 games to 3. Rob lost to someone with the initials A.B., the Sox lost because of a home run by someone with the same initials. The deciding vote came from Shii Ann, who resides in New York City. Rob's last name is Mariano - who won Game 7, and is from Panama, where Survivor just took place. If you pull some of the letters out of Amber Brkich's name - you can spell Babe R (a bit of a stretch, but you get the point). Plus, Boston Rob threw out the first pitch at the Yanks-Red Sox game last Labor Day Weekend, and the Sox lost 8-4 - putting them 5½ games back.

Interesting find ;-D . Must admit that I'm not a fan of survivor though. I do like The Mole. Not sure if it will have another season or not.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

The real "Survivor" Boston curse:

1. Rob is forced to marry Sue Hawk
2. He must pay $1,000,000 in penalties to a NY charity
3. Forced to play blind mans bluff in a dark room with Richard.

Agreed with DHC. As far as curses go, this one seems pretty mild... :-D
