2. Red Sox Reverse the Curse

Baseball's favorite myth met with history when the Boston Red Sox won the World Series in 2004, something they had not done in the previous 86 years. Not only did the team reverse the "Curse of the Bambino"--a superstition that in 1920 Babe Ruth cursed the club for trading him to the New York Yankees--but they did so in miraculous fashion. Down three games to none against the Yankees in the American League Championship Series, and down 4-3 in the bottom of the 9th inning in Game 4 against the Yankees' best pitcher, the Red Sox climbed back into the series with a walk, a stolen base, an RBI single, and a walk-off homerun. They would go on to win the next three games, then sweep the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series.
