A few weeks ago, I wrote about how my U11 son\’s soccer team had started a de-cursing ritual in which the Team Dad would de-curse the boys\’ shoes and the goalie\’s gloves before or during each game. And it worked. The boys had not lost a game since the ritual began. In fact, they made it all the way to the NorCal championship game.
The championship game was held this weekend and (cue of the up the Twilight Zone music) the de-cursing ritual seems to be legitimate. Unfortunately, Team Dad, Gene, did not perform his ritual and after a hard-fought game, my son\’s team lost 3-1. Congratulations boys on a great and memorable season.
In the meantime, buoyed by his newfound ability and backed by this latest scientific proof, Gene is now offering his de-cursing services and can be reached at 1-800-De-Curse.
