Would Red Sox fans just shut up?

Here, here and here - the media has decided that one of the main (early) stories of the 2005 World Series is - thank goodness we don't have to put up with those whining Red Sox fans and that Curse nonsense. It really was disgraceful that us Sox fans went around talking about the Curse non-stop... that we whined constantly... no? you neither? This Page 2 story on ESPN has no less than 8 digs at the Red Sox / Yankees in a story that is supposedly a guide to what to watch for in the 2005 Series...

It is one of those things about the media that drives me nuts at times - they write the original story... the Sox are cursed... they write the second, third, four hundredth and five thousandth story to make sure that we know the first story... then the media piles on in a quite unprecedented way with post Curse books celebrating the Sox victory to make sure that they get their share of the pie... and then tell us what a relief it is to not have any whining Red Sox fans at the party this year... incredible!
