The curse of the bambi

The Boston Red Sox won the World Series last night. The curse of the Bambino (Babe Ruth) was finally broken. The last time the Red Sox won the world series was in 1918. People believed that the baseball team was cursed ever since Babe Ruth was traded to the New York Yankees in 1920.

Ryan and I had a lightbulb moment that morning when we were watching the sports news. We were trying to figure out what the curse meant. We also learned that bambino is Spanish for baby (Babe Ruth). Ryan said, “That’s why Daddy calls Ryland bambino!” Oh yeah, of course, I thought. Then he shortened it to Bambi. It used to tick me off every time he called Ryland Bambi because that sounded like a girl’s name or Bambi the deer in the Disney movie.

There was a lunar eclipse last night. This was the first time that a lunar eclipse happened during a Baseball World Series. The eclipse wasn’t visible here since it was cloudy. The moon appeared red because of the dust in the air.
