Thank you, Gili.  I was gibbering last night, so the translation from
OHMIGOD!!!! to English was very helpful.

Margaret, the curse of the bambino being broken is not about sports.  It
is about magic, and hexes, at a very high level.  It's about Monigan's
power finally being broken, and Faber John rising from rest to reshape
Time City.  It's about the world of Dalemark being picked up and shaken
by immense powers, redrawn by faith and a bunch of ball players with
great hair, leaving a world that's completely unreconizeable.  What is a
Dalemark that's been redrawn? What is a world in which the Boston Red
Sox don't choke at season's end?
