There's still some Curse left in the Bambino

Apparently, just as Barry Bonds was hitting #715, the microphone cut out on the radio broadcast, robbing the local affiliate of any sort of attached legacy for posterity, and instead leaving Duane Kuiper with the only call.

Did the Babe try to prevent Barry from getting 715 by knocking the ball down before it could over the center field wall? Maybe in sending down his supernatural powers, the Babe only instead managed to take out a single microphone. What else was going on at Telephone Company Park that day? Was there something mystical in the air?

Believe it.... Or Not!
