Once upon a time, the Boston Red Sox sold Babe Ruth, aka “The Bambino,” to the New York Yankees. What followed was an 86-year period during which the (previously super successful) Sox didn’t win a single World Series title — something that was blamed on the “Curse of the Bambino.”
Earlier this week, Kanye West demurely (it wasn’t demure) proposed to Kim Kardashian in the middle of AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants. And now pissed-off Giants fans are terrified the act may have cursed the beloved ballpark, leaving the team with the “Curse of the Famewhore-o.” (Shut up. I like symmetry.)
SF Giants fans. Your stadium has been defiled. What a waste of a beautiful ball park.

AT&T Park needs to be cleansed by a priest so the demons of Kanye and Kim aren't left to curse the Giants.

If the giants don't make it to the World Series in 2014 we can blame it on the curse of Kim and Kanye

Curse of the Great Proposal = Curse of the Great Bambino. Ohhhhh just watch. Kanye did it to y'all.

You couldn’t sully Dodger Stadium, Kanye? You live in Los Angeles. Keep that shit at home.
Next thing you know, you’ll be wearing Van Halen t-shirts and breaking up the band.
