Harry Frazee, the owner of the Red Sox needed money fast so he sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees. This began the "Curse of the Bambino".
In 1916, Harry Frazee purchased the Red Sox, on credit, for $500,000. Despite Ruth's success with the Red Sox, owner and Broadway producer Frazee lost his patience with Ruth, who had threatened to hold out in lieu of a larger contract and become a distraction. After the Red Sox finished sixth in the American League in 1919, Frazee, needing money to finance a Broadway musical, No, No Nanette, sold pitcher-turned-outfielder Babe Ruth to the Yankees. Frazee received $125,000 and a loan of $300,000—secured on Fenway Park, the Red Sox' home stadium—for Ruth, despite Ruth having set the record for home runs with 29 in 1919.This began a series of deals with the Yankees that resulted in a long period of mediocrity for the Red Sox while the Yankees began their dynasty3 AnswersBaseball8 years ago

Being a Boston Celtics fan I loved the NBA finals in 1986!
The Boston Celtics beat the Houston rockets in 6 games in the finals.
The MVP of the series was Larry Bird of the Boston Celtics.
The Television announcers in game 6 were Dick Stockton and Tom Heinsohn
Tommy Heinsohn LOVED IT because the Lakers were SWEPT out of the playoffs by the Houston Rockets that year.4 AnswersBasketball8 years ago
As a testament to his all-around ability, Cowens is one of only four players (Scottie Pippen, Kevin Garnett and LeBron James are the others) to lead his team in all five major statistical categories for a season: points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals. He accomplished the feat in the 1977-78 season.
Personality..From time to time, Cowens exhibited a few unconventional traits:
In 1974, after the Celtics won the NBA championship over Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and the Milwaukee Bucks, he slept on a park bench on Boston Common, purportedly after wandering throughout the neighborhoods adjacent to downtown Boston to celebrate the victory with Celtics fans and an entourage of admirers and devotees.
During the early part of the 1977 season, Cowens took a leave of absence from the Celtics and worked as a cab driver for one night. He explained that he just needed "to clear his head" and that he was "suffering from burnout"3 AnswersBasketball8 years ago
