If you believe in destiny, aura, bad luck, momentum, or even the curse of the missed opportunity, you've probably written off the Texas Rangers. After last night's excruciating loss, when the franchise's first World Series was a single, tantalizing strike away on two separate occasions, they seem doomed to falter tonight. Think back to Bill Buckner, and the most famous Game Six in history. There was no way the Red Sox were coming back to win Game Seven, right? The universe had marked them with the black thumb, and the final act of their particular tragedy was written the moment the ball trickled through Buckner's legs.
