I think it's not so much the curse, but the weight of the fans' belief of the curse. The Sox have been able to avoid the weight of it, until recently.

Little Leaguers rally in support of maligned Cubs fan
October 18, 2003
NORTHBROOK, Ill. (AP) -- The youth baseball team coached by the Cubs fan who tried to catch a foul ball in Game 6 of the NL championship series rallied in a park near his house Saturday.
Twenty past and present members of the team of 13 and 14-year-olds coached by Steve Bartman, carried signs to express their support.
With the Cubs five outs from their first World Series last Tuesday night, Bartman got in the way of outfielder Moises Alou as he was trying to catch a fly in the stands along the left-field line.
After the near-miss, the Cubs fell apart, blowing a 3-0 lead and losing 8-3. They also lost Game 7 to the Marlins 9-6.
``A lot of the parents and kids wanted to do something so we decided to have a rally,'' said organizer and fellow coach Jeff Siegel.
``Steve's in a lot better spirits and he's grateful for the support,'' said Siegel, who said he talked to Bartman on Saturday but wouldn't reveal his whereabouts. ``He's trying to get his life back together.''
