Boston Battles Red Sox Curse With Bagels

BOSTON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A bagel a day may keep the Boston Red Sox curse away.

Today (Oct. 24) and tomorrow (Oct. 25), in honor of the Red Sox vs. Colorado Rockies 2007 World Series, 21 Boston-area Bruegger’s bakeries are dishing up red and blue swirled bagels for the big game.

The bagels are made by putting red and blue food coloring into plain bagel dough, and Bruegger’s spokeswoman Christine Bryan is confident the bagels will score a homerun with Beantown baseball buffs and bring some extra luck to the Red Sox on the diamond.

Says Bryan: “The bagels may be lucky and help the Red Sox win the World Series again. It’s a bagel movement to keep the Boston baseball curse as far away from the city as possible!”

Bruegger’s will serve the bagels during every home game of the World Series, and plans on sending a batch to the team to show their support.

Bryan jokes, “If the players eat the bagels for breakfast, they’ll be well-nourished and have no reason to lose!”

If the Sox beat the Rockies for the World Series championship, Bryan says Bruegger’s may think about concocting a special new Boston Red Sox championship bagel.
