Seattle Seahawks Coach Mike Holmgren decided to play reigning NFL MVP runningback Shaun Alexander deep into the fourth quarter in a blowout against the New York Giants, and now his team has paid the ultimate price. Alexander shattered his foot, and preliminary estimates have him out at least a month. That, and he'll be gimpy for the rest of his life. For more on this, I'd direct you to Wikipedia for a complete recap of the history of the curse.
I would also like to offer the following open letter to the NFL record-holder for most consecutive passes completed in a single game:
Dear Mark Brunell,
When EA Sports calls you up days after you set an NFL-record 4 touchdown passes this Superbowl, resist all temptations to cash in on this extremely lucrative opportunity. That is all.
