ATTENTION: The Curse has left the building.

Shhh. Can you hear that? Listen closely. It may be hard to hear, but it's the sound of The Curse walking away. As Fedor Tyutin scored the winning goal in the shootout against the Blackhawks, our Columbus Blue Jackets have officially ended a long fight with their Playoff Curse.

Beating the Blackhawks 4-3 sends the Jackets into the postseason for the first time in franchise history. This event is most important to us, the Blue Hairs. We've been diligently wearing our blue wigs, shaking our curse shakers and spreading the positive mojo – all in hopes of Shaking the Curse that has kept the Jackets from the playoffs.

For those of you that were proud enough to sport a wig or make your own curse shaker, this is your win too. The Jackets players have told us that the spirit of the fans chase the bad spirits away, giving the team an added focus. This has clearly paid off.

If you happen to hear the footsteps near the arena, it's The Curse walking away. Wear your Blue Hair, turn in the direction of the noise and offer your best single finger salute. This time, we win.

Curse Shaken. Did someone say playoff wig?


  1. OOO ooo, Me Me, I said Playoff wig many a times!....Yaya Jackets!

  2. Way to go Jackets, you made us Blue Hairs proud!

    We loved Shakin it! Thanks Michael for your great wig selling abilities! You rocked!
