The Red Sox are in the playoffs again. And Red Sox nation is once again disclaiming any belief at all in the supposed Curse of the Bambino.
Incidentally, the illuminated "Citgo" sign which is visible from inside Fenway Park is undergoing maintenance. But the people doing the work have been quick to reassure baseball fans that the side of the sign facing the ballpark will be untouched and lit throughout the playoffs. When it was out of order last year at about this time, it seems some took that as a jinx.
