Congrats to the Orioles on a terrific season, and boos to the Red Sox, who got a chance to pay us back for losing to us last year ("The suspense comes down to the final day," Oct. 3). Unlike the O's, the Sox couldn't find the pride to field the best team they could. I've seen Little Leaguers play with more heart then the Sox. We gave them the Bambino and this is how they repay us?

BOSTON -- The winner . . . and still the champion curse of the world is . . .The Bambino.Yes, the Cleveland Indians found out Friday night that you don't bring no stinkin', wimpy Curse of Rocky Colavito into Fenway Park in October. Nobody messes with the real curse. Nobody messes with the Curse of the Bambino.That curse belongs to the Boston Red Sox. And they guard it like the family Rottweiler guards the Alpo cabinet.The Red Sox finished off yet another tragic sweeperoo exit from the playoffs Friday night by losing to the Indians, 8-2. So that's three games, three Red Sox losses.

The Orioles organization announced this past week that they are bringing the "cartoon bird" back. In reality, the current state of this club is no laughing matter. Dan Duquette was recently named the executive vice president of the team. There may a change in the front office, but more years of mediocrity lay ahead for the Birds, who struggle mightily each season to achieve a .500 record. Andy MacPhail left a frustrated man, not being able to change the fortunes of the club during his tenure here.

ST. LOUIS -- Somewhere in the great beyond, The Babe was munching on his sixth hot dog and having a belly laugh at Boston's expense. "They think I was holding them back," he said with a chuckle. "Like I really cared enough to go all the way back down there and kick that ball through Buckner's legs. That's rich." Grantland Rice raised an eyebrow. "So you really didn't have anything to do with it?" "Well, I won't say I had absolutely nothing to do with it," the Bambino replied. "I did create the Yankee mystique, which I suppose might have been the Red Sox mystique if they hadn't sold me to build stage props."

QUESTION OF THE DAY Has the curse of the Bambino returned? It is last year's news. The "Curse of the Black Sox," now that's an issue. If the White Sox go all the way, poor "Shoeless" Joe Jackson can rest in peace at last. Joe Roman Baltimore It appears that it has indeed returned. Three strikes and they're out! Zina Makar Reisterstown Last fall, the Red Sox managed to capture the "Ghost of the Bambino." Recently, it was reported that the kidnapped "Ghost" broke free from his captors.

I am having a disturbing recurring thought about the plight of the Baltimore Orioles. If Buck Showalter is not the appointed savior of this franchise, then who is? Orioles fans are preparing for yet another season of mediocrity as the dog days of the season approach. A major achievement for this team would be playing .500 ball. Game attendance is waning as local sports fans anxiously await the beginning of the NFL pre-season. Most Baltimoreans know the history of the Camden Yards area.

Fans of all ages headed to Mercy Medical Center on Sunday for a rare opportunity to hold the bat used by baseball legend and Baltimore native Babe Ruth during his historic season in 1927, when he set the single-season home run record. Partnering with Mercy Medical Center, the Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation and Museum offered fans the opportunity to hold a piece of sports history to commemorate Ruth's Feb. 6 birthday. He would have been 116 years old. In the first public display of the record-setting bat — which has been kept in the private archives of the Babe Ruth museum — baseball fans put on protective gloves and struck their most exemplary batting poses, emulating the cutout of Ruth that served as a backdrop for souvenir photographs that fans could have taken for a $10 donation to Mercy's neonatal intensive care unit.

The Westside Preakness Parade, replete with marching bands and cheerleaders, renewed a venerable tradition yesterday as it streamed along Eutaw Street. But the procession ended at the doorstep of Baltimore's latest sports-culture attraction. The true main event for crowds gathered downtown was the grand opening of Sports Legends at Camden Yards, a museum in the former Baltimore and Ohio Railroad station that showcases Maryland sports and social history. Fifteen years in the making, the attraction is an extension of the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum on Emory Street, near the neighborhood where Ruth spent his youth in an orphanage.

BOSTON - There is a rumor floating around that the Boston Red Sox have become America's Team, as if everybody but a handful of coonskin-capped ticket takers at the Gateway Arch is rooting for them to end the alleged Curse of the Bambino. Nothing could be further from the truth. Real baseball fans - not the whiny, self-hating variety that you see stumbling along "Mass-Ave" in their post-Yankee euphoria - aren't going to relish the thought of a World Series parade through Red Sox Nation, not if they've considered the negative effect a Sox victory over the St. Louis Cardinals would have on baseball as we know it. The Red Sox without "The Curse" wouldn't be the Red Sox, and Red Sox fans without their traditional attack of autumn angst would lose the common bond that has held them together for much of the last century, which could lead to widespread ticket availability.
