It all started when a Pudge Rodriguez Fathead graced the wall of 97.1 The Ticket. Within a week of putting the Pudge Fathead up he was traded to the New York Yankees for Kyle Farnsworth. We here at 97.1 decided we would put up Curtis Granderson instead, because, well, he wasn’t going anywhere, right? Nope, that wasn’t the case at all: He was also traded to the Yankees.
So we were 0-2 in Tigers Fatheads and then hosts Doug Karsch and Scott Anderson decided the wall should be deemed the Jinx Wall since everyone we put up there goes away. So Karsch and Anderson decided to test it out. It started with the Phoenix Coyotes… and oh yes, the Red Wings went on to defeat them in the playoffs. Since the wall worked so well, Karsch and Anderson figured they would put up the Cleveland Indians, who at the time were leading the AL Central. After they put the Indians logo on the wall, they went on to lose 9 of 12.
Coincidence? We think not. With all that evidence, the time has finally come to bring the Jinx Wall back — and this time we bring you the Chicago White Sox. Check out the photos below.
